Today is a lovely Saturday. My Loved One is working on a big project downstairs. He is happiest with a project. Give him a hammer, nails, and things to fix or make, and all is well.
I, on the other hand, got up at eight, had breakfast that he served me, went back to bed. Now reading and writing my blog.
I have been trying to change some habits, but I am not quite able to do this yet. I have to keep my anger at myself in check here. Habits are not easy to make or change.
|Pretty in Pink|
The only reason I want to make some changes, is so I do the things I want to do. I have been doing things by how I “feel”, and that is not working well. If I don’t “feel” like it, I don’t go for my walk, or to yoga, or to a meeting, or clean.
The biggest habit I want to change is my getting up routine. Right now, I get up and sit and read the paper, check Facebook, eat, and have tea and coffee, but I stay in my pajamas. Then I find I lose my motivation.
What I want to do, is get up, shower, change into comfortable home clothes, make the bed and then read the paper. I really think this would help get my day started better.
I did this one day, and I was much more productive that day, and I felt much better overall.
This doesn’t sound like much, so I think I can do this.
However, I will need an accountability piece. I hope you, dear readers, will be that. I need you!!!

I am reading two books by Gretchen Rubin. She has found that people with good habits are the happiest.
Her blog site is here.
Her site is really full of good information, and she has the habit of blogging 6 days a week!
I know I am happier when I am a little more productive, and still have my lovely reading time.
There are other habits I want to add, but I am starting with this one.
I will start this tomorrow, Sunday May 9.
Wish me well!
