Last week on Girl Talk Tuesday, we chatted about 7 ways to start healthy habits. My ideas and suggestions wouldn’t be worth a flip if I didn’t implement them myself. This year, I’ve been working on starting healthier habits in my life. Here are a few that I have already started…
Daily Bible studies. I’ve always had good intentions about reading my Bible. Somehow, I’ve just always fallen off each time I started a new study. I decided to stop setting goals for myself and instead just decided to begin each day with Jesus. I’ve found a study in the Bible app that breaks down one chapter per day for me, which I love. So I listen to the 8 minute teaching, then read the chapter for myself. Next I read a daily devotional I subscribe to via my email. The combination of the three things plus some quiet time while drinking my coffee has become the most peaceful start to my day. I really enjoy this time. Now, when I wake up each morning, I grab coffee and go straight to my Bible routine before I allow myself any access to social media, emails, etc. I love to wake up slowly with my Creator instead of fast and furious with social media and the onslaught of negativity it can bring.
Stop touching my face. Sounds silly, right? That’s because it is. But it’s so annoying and something I can’t seem to stop. So I’m working hard on being mindful of touching my face, trying to nip this dumb habit in the bud.
Take my vitamins daily. This is one a ton of us struggle with. For me, it’s simply because I forget. I’m working on a habit of memorizing that certain supplements are to be taken at specific points in the day, so that it’ll just become habit for me.
Water intake. This one isn’t new for me, it’s ongoing. I try to drink at least 8 glasses of water daily. Most days I do because it’s become a part of my every day.
What about you? What habits are you working on this year? Please comment below so we can chat!
