What Habits Shall I Form in 2013

I’m pretty much starting fresh this year, with a new list. I prepared are my initial thoughts at my list of some habits I’d like to form, based on my current consciousness, and current (and persistent) frustrations.

These are in no particular order. I’ll prioritize and select ones to activate later. I’m considering taking them on in groups of habits that are related and that support each other, and that if taken on at once may more fully formulate and strengthen the new behavior as a whole.

HEALTH

1. Eat more consciously. Eat whole foods, perhaps according to Dr. Aieta’s Plan that I had previous success with. (Daily)

2. Start, complete and continue on a daily work-out routine in order to improve my health, lower and mange my weight, blood sugar, ability to perform (Daily)

3. Drink 8 glasses of water a day. (Daily)

4. Do 1 hour of yoga at least twice a week, in order to improve the health of my back, my posture, and reduce back pain.. (Weekly)

5. Take nutrition supplements everyday. (Daily)

6. Floss daily to maintain and improve my overall dental health. (Daily)

7. Chew my food at least 20-30 times before swallowing to improve health and digestion.

8. Cook on the weekend, making meals that I can have throughout the week.

9. Don’t eat after 8pm, unless it’s a protein rich snack before.

FINANCES & PRODUCTIVITY

1. Pay attention more regularly to my finances. Increase savings and investments. Reduce expenses. (Daily & Weekly)

CONSCIOUSNESS, ATTITUDE, CREATIVITY,

1. Begin the day consciously, either in a practice of morning pages or quiet meditation, reflection.

2. End the day consciously, perhaps by writing down things I’m grateful for everyday, journaling my day, or other completion exercise.

3. Fill my creative spirit weekly, either by going on Artist’s Dates every week or similar experiences.

  1. Considering this morning that habits being rooted more in a sense of being rather than doing may be more effective and powerful, I’ve decided this morning that the January habit will be something to do with being clear and current, relating to both my financial and personal space. More specifics on that later.
