One thing I love about the fall season, is that it’s the perfect time to get into reading. Curl up in your comfy chair, wrap up in a blanket, and dive into a good book.
Today’s post is about my reading challenge for October. The first book, “The Power of Habit” is the book I chose for personal growth. The book talks about how habits can have an impact on our everyday lives, healthy and unhealthy.
I started using the Fabulous app, which was a habit tracking app. At first, it was fun and cool to use. Unfortunately, I forgot that I had it, and slowly stopped using it, so I uninstalled it off my phone. But, I then went to my plan B.
I created a habit tracking page in Notion. If you haven’t heard of it, check it out in your app store. It helps with productivity, where you can create your own databases. For me, I use for both my personal life and for my passion projects, and it has been a game changer for me.
The habits I decided to focus on for this month are drinking water as soon as I wake up, have daily and nightly quiet time, practice skincare, be consistent with exercising, read 25 pages a day, and get more than 8 Hours of sleep. I thought that these were simple habits to practice for the month, and can make a difference in my health in the future.
After reading the first chapter of the book, I learned that individuals focused on one thing that helped them develop more healthy habits. I know, I have five, but they all came from the first habit I started on, which was drinking water as soon as I wake up in the morning.
I’ve never did this until the middle of September. I took even more seriously after my health scare two weeks ago. I do feel a difference in my body when I drink water first thing in the morning, I feel like I have a little more energy.
So today, I challenge you to focus on one habit, it can be for a week, a month, it can be for a year if your need a year. That’s ok. Start with one and see how many habits can impact your life over time. I’ll keep you all updated on how the book is going, and what I’m learning along the way.
Well, time for me to plan the rest of my day. I’ll check in with you all later.
Until next time…
