Why good day there! Pleased 2023! It’s been some time, hasn’t it? However one factor I’d like to be higher at this yr is running a blog. Name me old fashioned, however I find it irresistible. It’s simply such an important centralised hub for ALL THE CONTENT. Plus, from a purely egocentric side 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 yr! The posts is likely to be somewhat snappier, and so they’ll greater than doubtless be little much less heavy on the picture-front, however hopefully they’ll be extra of them. So preserve a watch 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 yr. I assumed I’d give the entire ‘12 Week Yr‘ factor a go; an concept wherein you cut up the yr down in quarters and set your targets for the 12 weeks forward solely. They may mount as much as a giant change all through the entire yr, however at that one cut-off date you’re simply targeted on the rapid steps forward. Easy, proper? My first purpose – begin a craft as a pastime (therefore the crochet hook – I’ve knitted three squares thus far), and full a easy challenge earlier than the top 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 which means finishing all my each day habits on a regular basis for the primary month of the yr. Up to now, so good and in doing so I hope to ascertain some habits that I start to do with out even considering about them. This woman 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 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 top of final yr I began the Five Minute Journal* and have you learnt what? It’s fab. I really feel prefer it actually places me in an excellent 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 – Every day dietary supplements. This can be a easy one, however having a small baby throughout the winter months is an endurance take a look at of your immune system – let me let you know! I’ve purchased myself a Pill Box* that I refill weekly so I by no means miss a dose. Plus I preserve it in my skincare drawer so I ensure I see it each morning and each night.
HABIT #3 – Eat entire 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 outlets up the precedence listing and ensuring they’re stuffed with components 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 straightforward for me to seek out issues that I need to eat and are fast to cook dinner.
HABIT #4 – Motion. Ahhh once more, you’ve obtained me. I’m a strolling, speaking new years cliche BUT I felt myself slowing entering into the swing of each day motion in the direction of the top of final yr and I’d love for it to be one thing I simply do. Mark and I’ve booked in our favorite Pilates Trainer to come back to the home weekly – so no excuses there! And I’m giving some totally different exercises a go, so hopefully my week will include spinning, pilates and strolling with a little bit of power 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 supplies me a bit extra flexibility in relation to shifting issues round and conserving monitor. I simply really feel a lot clearer in my thoughts and sleep so significantly better after 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 approach 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*, somewhat Gua Sha* routine, a full physique pretend tan – not solely do this stuff make me really feel nice bodily, they assist me mentally too. If ever I’m feeling a bit uninspired, I’ve made a listing of issues in my – yep you’ve guessed it – Notion.
HABIT #6 – Whering app. It’s a easy one, however I misplaced my means with digitally diarising my wardrobe throughout the months of November and December and I’d like to do it for a complete yr 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 straightforward one to tick off.
