Less Healthy Habits

Dear Readers,
I want to work on changing my less healthy habits to better ones.
Ever since my cochlear implant operation, I have slipped into some habits I’d like to slip out of!
The not so healthy habits I have fallen into are:

1. Sleeping too long – 10 hours a day 
2. Isolation
3. Phone Checking – looking at FB, e-mail, playing games
4. Too much TV – Dr. Phil…really????
5. Eating Crackers all day

Before I beat myself up too much, let’s look at my good habits!

1. Yoga classes 3 times a week
2. Walk 3 times a week with hubby
3. Blogging about recovery
4. Not drinking

I was going to several meetings a week, but have gotten into the habit of not going to any, or just random hit and miss.

I googled how to break habits, and of course I already know how to do it.
The hard part is taking action.

Do I try to break all at one time?
A little bit of each at a time?
Take just one?

When I stopped drinking, one thing that helped me was the accountability. I had my sponsor, my meetings, my friends, my family and my blog world to hold me up. (Still do!)

Can I add a piece of accountability to these other habits?
I am going to think about this.
Tomorrow I see my wonderful therapist.
Maybe ALL of YOU can help me!!!
I sure do I need it!!

  2. 10 hours a day seems perfect! I'm addicted to my phone too so I can't help you there…lol. I LOVE Dr. Phil 🙂 Let's start with the crackers, slip in a carrot once in a while?In all seriousness, you are doing SO well.
