Why good day there! Comfortable 2023! It’s been some time, hasn’t it? However one factor I’d like to be higher at this 12 months is running a blog. Name me old fashioned, however I adore it. It’s simply such a fantastic centralised hub for ALL THE CONTENT. Plus, from a purely egocentric facet it’s like an internet diary that handily permits me to seek out the protein pancake recipe that I used to make all the time again in 2015. So right here’s to running a blog extra this 12 months! The posts may be a bit snappier, they usually’ll greater than doubtless be little much less heavy on the picture-front, however hopefully they’ll be extra of them. So maintain an eye fixed spherical right here for lists, mind dumps and simply useful assets and round-ups. First, up my 2023 each day habits…
When it comes to resolutions I’ve stored it easy this 12 months. I believed I’d give the entire ‘12 Week Yr‘ factor a go; an thought wherein you cut up the 12 months down in quarters and set your targets for the 12 weeks forward solely. They may mount as much as an enormous change all through the entire 12 months, however at that one time limit you’re simply targeted on the rapid steps forward. Easy, proper? My first purpose – begin a craft as a passion (therefore the crochet hook – I’ve knitted three squares to date), and full a easy mission earlier than the tip of March. My second purpose – journey extra, which for the subsequent 12 weeks has damaged down into the steps of type out Ralph with a passport and guide a summer season vacation for us all. My third purpose? Full a tough reset for January. For me meaning finishing all my each day habits on a regular basis for the primary month of the 12 months. To date, so good and in doing so I hope to ascertain some habits that I start to do with out even considering about them. This lady wanted a kick up the rear to do some easy steps which finally depart me feeling actually good, sleeping higher and total simply being a happier me. Every is famous in a behavior monitoring desk on my Notion (as a result of you realize I simply LOVE THAT STUFF), and as I do them every day I tick them off. Right here’s how I’m making them very easy for me to finish…
HABIT #1 – Journal. In the direction of the tip of final 12 months I began the Five Minute Journal* and are you aware what? It’s fab. I really feel prefer it actually places me in a superb temper for the day forward. I’ve now transferred this right into a template into my Notion that I begin afresh on a regular basis as a result of doing it digitally means I can do it on my cellphone in mattress with out waking anybody up within the morning!
HABIT #2 – Each day dietary supplements. It is a easy one, however having a small baby through the winter months is an endurance check of your immune system – let me inform you! I’ve purchased myself a Pill Box* that I refill weekly so I by no means miss a dose. Plus I maintain it in my skincare drawer so I be sure I see it each morning and each night.
HABIT #3 – Eat complete meals. Blah, blah, a cliche I do know, however I used to be simply so sick of consuming a huge bag of crisps for lunch as a result of there was no different meals to eat in the home. The irony is that I LOVE feeding the little man scrumptious meals, however I used to be not prioritising myself. So the plan right here is 2 fold. Firstly, pushing meals retailers up the precedence checklist and ensuring they’re stuffed with elements that may maintain us ALL, all day lengthy. And secondly, I’ve created a meal concepts template in Notion so each time I’m feeling a bit uninspired, it’s simple for me to seek out issues that I need to eat and are fast to prepare dinner.
HABIT #4 – Motion. Ahhh once more, you’ve received me. I’m a strolling, speaking new years cliche BUT I felt myself slowing moving into the swing of each day motion in direction of the tip of final 12 months and I’d love for it to be one thing I simply do. Mark and I’ve booked in our favorite Pilates Instructor to return to the home weekly – so no excuses there! And I’m giving some completely different exercises a go, so hopefully my week will encompass spinning, pilates and strolling with a little bit of energy coaching thrown in too – just like the previous days! I used to jot down my weekly schedule down on paper, however I now schedule it in Notion which provides me a bit extra flexibility in the case of shifting issues round and protecting monitor. I simply really feel a lot clearer in my thoughts and sleep so significantly better once I’ve moved my physique. Boring, however true.
HABIT #5 – Magnificence self-care. This a pleasant one. I actually needed to have a each day behavior that was all for me. A method to carve out a while of each single day for myself, which I personally simply discover so, so crucial to my psychological well being. So whether or not it’s a pleasant lengthy tub, 10 minutes with a LED Mask*, a bit Gua Sha* routine, a full physique pretend tan – not solely do these items make me really feel nice bodily, they assist me mentally too. If ever I’m feeling a bit uninspired, I’ve made an inventory of issues in my – yep you’ve guessed it – Notion.
HABIT #6 – Whering app. It’s a easy one, however I misplaced my method with digitally diarising my wardrobe through the months of November and December and I’d like to do it for an entire 12 months only for the analytics alone as a result of I’m a NERD. So I’ve up to date the app with any newer purchases I’ve made and often log my outfit for the day while I’m brushing my tooth within the night. This an actual simple one to tick off.
