My blogs are getting like London buses - you wait ages for one, then four come along at once!
Actually that's not been my experience of buses recently. Generally they run quite well and frequently but of course they are subject to traffic problems, roadworks etc.
As for the blogs, well I want to keep them coming. They need to be one of my good habits. One of the books I read recently was Better than Before - Mastering the Habits of our Everyday Lives by Gretchen Rubin. It's an interesting study on habits although it didn't give as much in the way of practical tips as I hoped it would.
I have lots of habits. But most of them are not good. I waste time playing Facebook games. I eat too many biscuits. I watch TV for the sake of it. I could go on and on .... Apparently I'm an obliger - I respond to external needs but not my own internal ones - things that require self-motivation. Couple that with losing the structure and external needs of a job with a lot of responsibility it's no wonder that I've been rather aimless. So I'm trying to establish good habits.
Making sure I remember to take my blood pressure medication EVERY day. Exercising. Keeping on top of things. Not allowing my inbox to get backlogged. Getting enough sleep. Remembering all the birthdays in the family.
I read somewhere that it takes a month to establish a habit so starting this in the run up to Christmas is probably not the best time but I could always come up with excuses as to why I should wait until tomorrow. But tomorrow never arrives so today I have to Just do it! (And tomorrow and the next day and the next and.......)
