So it’s Wellness Wednesday again. And this time I’m in the process of cleaning up my environment and setting myself up for success. I found that if I’m miserable because my house is a mess and I’m unorganized, I can’t even begin to get myself into new habits and a positive frame of mind.
Started with my goals for the new year and one of them is to be happier. Made a list of things that I needed to make that happen. One of them was to clean out my basement. I was having nightmares of living in a house full of garbage, bugs and all sorts of nastiness. I was down right disgusted when I woke up. I’m not one for having reoccurring nightmares, sonthis made me real miserable. So I busted out some new boxes and repackaged some things, put all the Christmas decorations neatly away. Got over my fear of cobwebs and vaccuumed them all up. Still not 100% done but it’s getting there. I still hate my basement because it’s not entirely finished (there is a lot of cement floors and beams ect), but clean is better then the gross mess it was before.
Next was a step to get some good habits rocking daily. Got my makeup stuff into cute jars. Basically I raided Pintrest for hours to find little ways to make my life a little more organized and pretty. I was horrible at removing my makeup and washing my face daily. Now I’ve got everything set up all on the counter, so there’s no more excuses for that. Do whatever it takes!
It’s just like going to the gym, you have to set yourself up for success. Put your gym clothes out so that you see them. Make sure you build time into your schedule for it (and for people who say they don’t have time…. if you watch TV you sure as heck do!). Even if for the first month you just go there and walk on the treadmill for an hour, that’s ok. Build a good habit of just getting your butt there. Never skip a Monday: if you do, you usually end up slipping into longer stretches of inactivity.
Goodluck my beauties and beasts!
