Breaking Up With Bad Habits

Dear John Letter


In one of our last workplace TOPS meetings, we all wrote “Dear John” letters to a habit or personal obstacle that was standing in the way of our goals or no longer serving us. We gave the boot to things like extra weight, certain indulgences and even a pricey gym membership. As 2017 draws closer, and brings with it new opportunities and possibilities, it may be time to “break up” with whatever is keeping you from reaching your goals. Maybe it’s the fridge calling your name late at night, sugary treats in the break room or an inclination to head to the couch after work. Sometimes, we just have to stop and ask ourselves whether or not something is working for us.

Breaking up is never easy, but it’s better than being in a long-term relationship with something that’s keeping you from being the best possible version of you. It’s okay to kick an unhealthy habit to the curb and let it know, “It’s not me, it’s you.”

Members, you can find the Dear John activity and other chapter activity ideas in the Members Area under Stuff For Your Chapter, Plan a Meeting, Chapter Contests and Activities.
