In this worksheet based on my first children’s picture book, we can use a
very powerful force in order to improve our lives. That powerful force already
affects all of our lives daily, whether for good or bad. It is the force of
habit. We can use this worksheet to make it easier (and even fun) to create new
We all have daily routines that include both unhealthy and healthy habits. If we take time to consider our automatic actions, we can then work to improve them. It can take 18 days or more to establish a behavior as a habit. But once it is a habit, that is very powerful and we can use that power to our advantage.
Healthy Habits and Affirmations
The worksheet helps us focus in on one particular goal which we can make into a habit. It can also be used as a way to focus on a positive affirmation. Or to introduce affirmations to children. Below is a detailed teachers’ lesson plan to go along with the worksheet for anyone who wants more detailed procedures or to use it professionally.
NOTE: For those of you who, like me, may not be all too computer savvy and need a little help with figuring out how to print the page or pages to fill a whole standard 8.5″ by 11″ paper. Here are some instructions on how to print these JPG files:
Right-click on the form and select “Save As,” then save in a folder with which you are familiar and can access.
Go into that folder and open the file so you can see the form fill your screen.
Click on the printer icon in the top, right-hand corner of the screen. (A “Print” window will pop up.)
In the Print window, select these settings:
Paper Size: 8.5 x 11
Photo Size: Full Page
Page Margins: Normal
Fit: Fill page
Then click on the print button toward the bottom of that pop-up window.
Voila! You should have the form printing out and filling a full piece of paper.
