Happy Wednesday everyone. For today’s post, I will be discussing the importance of keeping habits and having routines. It is something that I do in my daily life, and really can add and help improve yours, once you get in the hang of it.
“a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up.”
Some of my Habits:
1. Working out 1-2x a day.
This one is fairly new for me but so important an such a game changer. Ever since my summer began, I made a promise to myself to workout at least once a day. No breaks, no excuses. I feel so much lighter and overall better than I had prior to doing this habit/routine, and I also am now able to enjoy other things (such as a cheat meal or ice cream two days in a row!).
2. Daily Reading.
This is one I have been doing for a little while now. Every night I take the time to read, journal, and read one page from my two 1-Page A-Day books. It gives me a chance to reflect on the day, and learn something new.
3. Meditate/Health Shots.
This is more of a health habit. I enjoy meditating once a day to relax my mind. Mentally, I enjoy this because it gives my mind a rest. Physically however, this has improved my way of life in more ways than one (I have a post all about this in the Health and Fitness section of my website!). I take daily health shots because I actually feel a difference in my digestive tract when I do. I can feel my body working out all the toxins and overall improving my immune system.
These are three habits/routines I tend to stick with everyday. There are others I do every now and then depending on the season, if I am in school, etc. Being able to stick to even one thing everyday gives you something to look forward to and continue to grow and work on for yourself. I hope you all enjoyed and be sure to stick around for a Friday’s post!
