Habits v's Goals.
I have been wearing glasses for the past 18 months, and just made the move to contacts. In 18 months I have formed a habit of pushing my glasses back up my nose. I am more aware of that right now, as I keep doing it without having any glasses to push up my nose.
Obviously it took less than 18 months to form the habit, but I am curious how long it will take to break it.
Supposedly it takes 21 days to form a new habit/break a habit. I wonder if this will follow suit.
With it coming up to the end of the year, New Years round the corner, I have one goal for 2013. That goal is to make sure I give myself some work/life balance. I have spent the past 3 years working a crazy schedule, and put my personal life pretty much on hold.
Going forward I want to continue to work hard, but ensure that I leave some time for my own mental and physical health. I have weight to lose and friends to see. I really do have some amazing friends though. They have been patient with me over the past few years, and have been flexible with their schedules, so that when I did have some down time we were able to get together. Now its my turn to make sure I can do the same for them..
Regardless of new years resolutions, what things in your life are you looking to change?
