I’m reading a book called Atomic Habits by James clear. It’s about making small changes over time, persistently and by using specifics instead of vague wording. There’s a lot more to the book than just this of course and I highly recommend it.
Anyway for example instead of having a goal stating “I want to lose weight” a much more refined specific version would be something like “I will work out for 30 minutes after my morning cup of coffee” I find this stuff interesting because I’ve been trying to implement good habits into my life and get rid of bad ones.
So here are some habits I’m trying to add into my life.
.Draw more – I will draw/or at least begin a drawing every morning while I have my morning cup of coffee for at least 25 minutes.
Exercise – I will take a walk in the mornings after breakfast and in the afternoon after lunch.
Food – I will sit at my kitchen table when I eat instead of eating mindlessly standing up or in my room. I will not have more than 2 caffeinated cups of coffee a day (it causes anxiety and insomnia for me) I will eat some sort of vegetables at least once a day.
Cleaning: I will sweep the floor every evening after dinner. I will mop/vacuum the floors on Saturdays.
