Now we are 10 days in you may have found you have picked up some bad habits. Maybe that is eating too much or staying in bed too long, drinking more alcohol than normal or just doing mind numbing activities all day staying in your pajamas and blobbing on the couch. Now don’t get me wrongdoing some of these things for the short term isn’t a problem BUT if you continue with these bad habits over time, they become your new ‘Normal’ and could cause you problems in the future.
Set yourself one task each day so that you feel you have accomplished something. It doesn’t have to be huge. Maybe it is something that takes you towards something you have wanted to do for a while. For example, if it is losing weight, go for a power walk every day. If it is to write that book that you have always wanted to write, set yourself a task of completing 2 pages a day as a minimum. It is all about ‘tiny habits’ when you want to make a change. Looking at the bigger picture can be overwhelming, so just make small adjustments but do them consistently, then they become the new habit.
Enjoy the sunshine, we live in a beautiful place, take time to breathe deeply and relax, right now this minute you are OK.
