Apparently it takes 28 days to form a habit. I’m going creating a list of good habits i would like to form and i’m challenging myself to do them everyday for from the 5th of Feb till the 4th of March.
1.Waking up early
I would like to wake up at 6AM when i have university and at 8AM on my days off. I notice that when i’m early my day starts out on a much better note. I am less stressed, i can take them time to walk through the motions with out rushing out the door.
2.Make my bed first thing when i wake up
Something about a made bed really makes the room look more organised and makes me feel like a i have it all under control. Who doesn’t love jumping into a nicely made bed?!
3.Exercising for 15mins
Exercising for a longer time a few times a week works for some people, but it never works for me. Working out for a short time everyday creates a habit and seems less daunting than longer stretches of time.
4.Reaching out to a friend
I am absolutely bad at keeping in touch with friends and reaching out to them. I get so caught up in my do list i tend to withdraw from the outside world. I would like to somehow reach out to one friend everyday.
5.Reading for at least an hour
I absolutely love reading. Once i start i can just keep on reading till i’m done. The challenge is making the time to open a book. Things can get very hectic and reading for an hour will give my brain a much needed break from reality.
6.Check new headlines
I would like to take a few minutes everyday to know what is going on out in the world. It is very comfortable here in my bubble , but it will be good to at least know what everyone else is talking about.
7.Take my vitamins
I just need to remember to take them!
8.Develop good study habit
I start of the semester being the best student out there until the work actually starts and then i feel like i’m constantly trying to catch up.
9.Tidy up at the end of the day
Picking up a little bit before bed will go along way in preventing an apocalypse sized mess in my room.
10.Write one sentence describing my day before going to sleep.
I would like to take a few minutes at the end of the day to to reflect on my day. I think that would give me a fresh start for the next day.
