Picture of woman forming healthy habits

When it comes to replacing bad habits with positive ones, there are a variety of different approaches you can take. Some methods might be more effective than others depending on your situation and goals, but here are just a few examples to get you started:

5 Tips For Breaking Bad Habits

  1. Set specific, measurable goals and track your progress. Whether you want to include cannabis in your yoga/meditation routine, eat healthier, or exercise more consistently, having concrete goals and tracking your progress can help keep you motivated and on track.
  2. Use positive reinforcement to reinforce the behaviors you want to see. For example, if you achieved a small goal you have set for yourself treat yourself to something else that is good for you. Let’s say you finished your work instead of procrastinating, take time to get some exercise or go for a walk. You earned leisure time, and you deserve fresh air and exercise.
  3. Find an accountability partner or group who will help support and motivate you along the way. Whether it’s joining a group fitness class or finding a friend who is also trying to form positive habits, having someone else to cheer you on and help keep you accountable can be a great way to stay on track.
  4. Change your environment and routine in small, manageable ways that are easy to stick with. For example, try switching out your regular coffee for an iced matcha latte, or start taking the stairs instead of the elevator at work. Making simple changes like these can help make your new habits more manageable and easier to stick with over time.
  5. Be patient, persistent, and consistent in your efforts. It may take some trial and error to find the approach that works best for you, but with time and practice, you will be able to cultivate positive habits that last for the long term.

The Renaissance of the 21st Century

When the plague hit the world in the 14th century, it caused a huge turning point in the mentality of humans. They began to question everything, including authority. The Renaissance began.

Covid did the same thing.

Following the plague of the 14th century, the Renaissance began.

We’re going to see a huge wave of creative works in this century. It’ll be our generations Renaissance of arts, theatre, music, imagery, videography, technology, and societal development.

New Technology Is Akin to the Renaissance Printing Press


As we integrate new technology, just as the printing press did prior to the beginning of the Renaissance, we will learn to innovate and create in entirely new ways. Exploring the boundaries of what it means to be “creative”.

In the artists’ storage box, AI will be used to examine and challenge old ways. Currently unseen solutions will begin to flood the world stage.

Solving Complex Problems with the Push of a Button

Integration tactics, problem solving, and project completion will become as simple as pressing the tweet button.

Our society is pushing back against injustices, inequalities, and false information that governs our free will. We seek freedom to express ourselves, and to explore the unknown.

Protests for Social Justice

I believe the legalization of cannabis and psychedelics is the ground floor of the process of Renaissance.

AI will push old ideas aside, with a rapid onset of new ideas, more efficiency, and new solutions to complex issues we currently face.

With the help of new technology and easier access to new knowledge, society is actively challenging outdated information and old ideas already.

Interconnected World

Unlike the 14th century, the church is not the authority this time around. The current authority is bad science, banking, narrow-minded politicians, false idols, and misappropriated technology.

Challenge New Ideas

If you’re guilty of rejecting new ideas, new ideologies, and feel the need to put down those that wish to explore new ideas, that’s ok – it’s all part of the process. New ideas must be challenged in order to fully understand them, and to test their permeability.

I personally welcome new ideas, but may challenge them.

There are 3 possible outcomes:

  1. I change my mind
  2. You change your mind
  3. No conclusion, and further analysis is needed

The more this process occurs, the greater the impact on the next generation.

Debate Discussion
Debate Discussion

The ideas and conflicts with seemingly no resolution will be challenged by AI, and solved.

We must use this technology carefully, this is the most frightening part of the 21st century. It either creates a sci-fi horror movie, or a utopia. There is no room for error here.

What a time to be alive, we’re seeing the modern interpretation of what the entry into the Renaissance was like.

We can learn from the previous mistakes of the 14th century humans, and avoid them.

We are on the verge of the next massive evolutionary jump, which will coincide with technological advances beyond our current comprehension. It will happen incredibly fast, and there is no way to stop it once it begins.

Let’s make it count.

Be good to each other.
