Despite being the shortest month, I really felt that February took forever to come to a close. At the same time, it feels like 2016 just arrived and I cannot believe we’re already seven days into March.
February was a good month overall. There were a lot of exciting changes at work, I started working out regularly again and I finally relaunched and rebranded the blog. Through all of the positives February brought along, I definitely picked up some bed habits along the way.
Take out has become way to regular for me, and happy hours way too frequent. I’ve been staying up later for no real reason and most nights, I’m in bed with the iPad binge watching random reruns (America’s Next Top Model is on Hulu, btw).
Late nights lead to getting a late start in the morning (which is when I’m usually the most productive and have the highest levels of energy). The spiral continues throughout the day and by bedtime I’m exhausted, stressed and overwhelmed at how little I’ve gotten done that day.
So it’s definitely time to get it together and add some balance back into my routine. That starts with nixing some bad habits, starting this week.
This week I’m focusing on:
- Going to bed with a book instead of a screen and getting to sleep by 11pm.
- Waking up at 5:30 every morning and making breakfast at home.
- Packing food to get me through the day and making
That’s it for now. Breaking my goals down this way has always proven effective. All about small steps in the right direction that add up to become positive and healthy habits.
What are you focusing on this week?
