healthy habits for personal growth

so recently I've been paying a bit more attention to my habits, after all we are creatures of habit. habits can either make or break you in some aspects of your daily. for a new behavior to become habitual it takes anywhere somewhere around 21 days roughly. it takes 66 days for a behavior to become automatic depending on the habit. so, I thought to myself yes! I'm always down for personal growth involving healthy habits. I do recall starting to drink 16 ounces of water first thing in the morning it took about 2 weeks for it to become routine, now it's very much habitual and I don't even think about it anymore.

During this holiday season, as we start a new year less than 2 months away. I'd like to focus on some new healthy habits and go from there. I've chosen a few ideas that can be a great starting point and will promote exercise, self-care and personal growth. If any of these tickle-your-fancy I'd love to hear which one you've chosen and the benefits you've experienced.

here's a lil'list of habits for personal growth:

Wake up earlier

Exercise regularly

Drink more water

Eat at least two healthy meals a day

Take deep breaths before responding when stressed out

Read 10 pages a day

Plan your week every Sunday

Keep only 1-3 tabs open on your computer

Craft a mission statement and look at it nightly

Get 7-9 hours of sleep every night

Follow a morning routine plan

Put your phone away during conversations

Take an evening walk

Drink warm lemon water when you wake up

Journal one line a day for every day of the year

Cook new recipes

Make an effort to do good deeds regularly

Repeat positive mantras at the start of your day

Prepare for your day the night before

Take a class just for fun

Make self-care your priority

Create a morning (or evening) ritual of meditation

Set clear boundaries with people in your life

Wake up without an alarm

Make an effort to hang out with friends more often

Put aside time daily for spiritual practices

Take a lesson away from each experience

Help those in need

Tackle the most important tasks of your day in the morning

Is there anything form this list that you'd like to try for the next 21 days? I'd love to hear your feedback in comments below.

Personally, I'm working on setting clear boundaries with people in my life. It's def a process for me, but I'm working on it. This isn't a 21 day habit, but I've already seen the benefits through certain interactions with others. I found that my energy was drained when interacting with others, and learning to not let them take my energy is def a process, but one that I'm happy to continue to fine tune.

I'm here for you, if you want to chat about your new habit up'd like to form for personal growth shoot me an email.
