Why hiya there! Blissful 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 style, however I find it irresistible. It’s simply such a fantastic centralised hub for ALL THE CONTENT. Plus, from a purely egocentric side it’s like a web based diary that handily permits me to search 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 may be a bit snappier, and so they’ll greater than seemingly be little much less heavy on the picture-front, however hopefully they’ll be extra of them. So hold an eye fixed spherical right here for lists, mind dumps and simply useful sources and round-ups. First, up my 2023 day by day habits…
By way of resolutions I’ve saved it easy this yr. I believed I’d give the entire ‘12 Week 12 months‘ factor a go; an thought wherein you break 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 time limit you’re simply targeted on the speedy steps forward. Easy, proper? My first objective – begin a craft as a interest (therefore the crochet hook – I’ve knitted three squares to this point), and full a easy mission earlier than the top of March. My second objective – journey extra, which for the following 12 weeks has damaged down into the steps of type out Ralph with a passport and guide a summer time vacation for us all. My third objective? Full a tough reset for January. For me meaning finishing all my day by 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 pondering 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 general simply being a happier me. Every is famous in a behavior monitoring desk on my Notion (as a result of you already know 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 direction of the top of final yr I began the 5 Minute Journal* and are you aware what? It’s fab. I really feel prefer it actually places me in a great 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 telephone in mattress with out waking anybody up within the morning!
HABIT #2 – Each day dietary supplements. This can be a easy one, however having a small baby through the winter months is an endurance check of your immune system – let me let you know! I’ve purchased myself a Capsule Field* that I refill weekly so I by no means miss a dose. Plus I hold it in my skincare drawer so I be certain 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 big 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 record and ensuring they’re filled with components that may maintain us ALL, all day lengthy. And secondly, I’ve created a meal concepts template in Notion so every time I’m feeling a bit uninspired, it’s simple for me to search out issues that I wish 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 stepping into the swing of day by day motion in 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 return to the home weekly – so no excuses there! And I’m giving some completely 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 put in writing 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 preserving observe. 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 day by day behavior that was all for me. A technique 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 Masks*, a bit Gua Sha* routine, a full physique faux 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 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 manner with digitally diarising my wardrobe through the months of November and December and I’d like to do it for an entire 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 simple one to tick off.
