Hey friends! I just wanted to pop in quickly on this Sunday to share with you a couple of habits I am really trying to incorporate into my life right now. They say it takes 21 days until something is a habit. That sounds like a long time...
1. Use mouthwash every night. I went to the dentist for the first time in almost three years! I know, that is so shameful. There are still no cavities in this mouth of mine, but the dentist did recommend that I start using mouthwash for 30 seconds every night. I'm going to do it! I have already done it three nights in a row. My new bedtime routine: brush teeth, put mouthwash in my mouth, pee, spit out mouthwash. I am really going to make the effort to continue to do this. I am just hoping I remember to do it before I cuddle up into my warm bed!
2. Walk. I want to cool down with a 1 minute walk for every mile of my workout. Last year I read the book Ready to Run and in the book they recommended cooling down with a walk. I did it for awhile but then eventually stopped. I would like to get back into this habit.
3. Stop the midnight snacking! Okay, so it's not exactly midnight when I'm snacking, but it is right before I go to bed. After I decide to go to bed, I head over to the pantry to see what I can stuff in my mouth quickly. Why? No reason. I'm not hungry. I'm not deprived. I had a hearty dinner and a satisfying dessert. I would like to stop doing this! Maybe Paul can lock the pantry door?
Is there anything you are trying to make a habit?
