My "theme" for January is - Habits. A few weeks ago, our new company president gave us all copies of The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life & Business. I haven't finished the book yet, but the premise has clearly lodged in my head. When I started thinking about the things that I wanted to start in January, it occurred to me that they all revolve around establishing habits. My happiness resolutions for the month:
Take vitamins/supplements daily. My naturopath has prescribed a pretty intense regimen of vitamins & supplements. I'm haphazard, at best, about taking them. Despite that inconsistency, my last round of lab results showed progress. Imagine what that progress could look like with a habit of following the protocol!
Meditate daily. Yep, this. Again. For the next month+, I'll be working through Gabby Bernstein's May Cause Miracles, which will include daily meditation.
Write daily. I suspect that writing will show up in many resolutions this year. When I lose my voice, I've lost my way. For January, I will write daily. This might be blogging, or it might be journaling at 750Words. I've always loved the idea of morning pages, but I've never written them.
Be Grateful daily. One thing that I know about myself is that I can hit "snooze" on virtually anything. I have a gratitude app on my phone, but I've become immune to the tone. I mentally hit "snooze" whenever it goes off. To combat this, I'm going to put my gratitude journal next to my bed, and write something down each night before I go to sleep.
I'm intentionally adding "daily" to the end of each resolution b/c I know that I need to practice daily to create a habit. Not once a week, or three random times during the month...daily.
