Habits. habits everywhere.
3... 2... 1...
We made it! We're in 2017. This damn 2016 is finally over and that means we just reached another of those totally arbitrary milestones in the human calendar.
Human psychology is weird and for some reason, new year's eve feels like the right time to throw the bad and old habits out the window and start fresh as soon as the clock pass midnight.
That’s plain stupid you might think and I’ll agree with you on that.
But this year I thought, you know what? I might start something on January 1st and see if I can stick to it for the next 365 days.
And, since I’m quite an idiot and well aware that you can barely manage to introduce one change in your life at the time, I decided to introduce a bunch of them.
That’s probably because in this way I can blame that and not myself for failing for the 120th time ahah.
Anyway, here’s the list of things I decided to introduce (or reintroduce in some case) in my life:
Wake up early
I used to wake up at 5am and was a great habit. Then, you know, winter comes, it gets cold, you wake up and is basically still night outside and that habits is quickly gone.
I’ll try to force myself to wake up at 5 again. Don’t care if it’s dark outside or cold or whatever.
Writing this thing you’re reading right now
I thought about this for quite some time now and this seems a good moment to start a blog. Why? Don’t know.
I’m well aware that my English is far from perfect decent but this is a nice way to improve on that as well.
Also I thing it’s a nice way to force myself to reflect on what’s going on in my life and that’s a nice thing to do.
Reading and cutting down distractions
In the last few months of 2016 I come to the conclusion that I must cut down distractions. And by distractions I mean things like news sites, youtube, twitter and all the rest of the internet noise.
And what better way to achieve that by replacing those moments with a book. I’ll try to read at least 1 book every month and also try to listen to 1 audiobook.
Lastly I’ll try to push the declutter I started in 2016 even further by getting rid of as many physical stuff as I can.
How about you? Are you gonna do anything special in this 2017?
