(From the article): So all these are aspects of people who got their lives together. You don't do them all at once. In my forty years of being a professional therapist, especially in addictions, I've never had a success with making a change and quitting nicotine at the same time. It's too hard. I've gotten people off heroin, cocaine, meth, marijuana, alcohol, and overeating but not if they've tried to quit smoking at the same time. Pick your battles. Pick one to commit to and start. Get your routine established and practice every day. Post them so you can see your progress. You don't have to complete each one before starting on another, but don't overload yourself. Each of these have nuances that get discovered along the way. Every person has to customize the particular events to their specific learning style and willingness to work the program. Some will be more powerful than others, but all have caused relief for certain aspects of dysfunctional life styles. One thing is for sure: if you start doing them, you'll be a happier person. And from there your life will have depth and meaning.

Our habits are what ultimately build who we are. If we build positive daily habits, we create ourselves in a positive and thoughtful direction. If we build negative daily habits, we find wake up in deep holes while at the same time wondering how we got there in the first place. The key, then, is to understand how these habits come to be--and having the awareness to spot those that prohibit larger, more positive growth.
