I don’t really do new year resolutions but sometimes I start up new things and one new thing that I decided to start doing is using the Habit List app to track and, more importantly, maintain certain habits.
Since my theme for this year is Movement, both in exercise and in writing, the items in my list are geared towards that goal.
- Exercise, 5 days a week
- Plank, every day
- Stretch, every day
- Meditate, every day
- Write, every day
- Blog, once a week
- Guitar, every day
Okay, that last one is maybe a little out of left field. But I’ve always wanted to learn, my kids are learning, so I figured why not.
When you want something out of life, you also have to want the cost. This list is what it’s going to cost me to reach my goals of reaching my target weight, getting another book published, and being able to play a John Mayer song.
These things take time out of my day. I was asked how I fit all of this in and, honestly, I make the time. I have my day job, I have my kids, and I have the time I want to spend with friends. These are all things that I want and I’ll make the time for what I want.
(and with this, I just checked an item off my habit list today)
