Habits are those things that we do over and over again until they become part of our life without having to think too much about them.  We do them automatically.  Habits can be both good and bad.  I've noticed the regular patterns and rituals and habits in my life.  A rhythm of everyday comfort in doing things that are familiar.  

These are some of my everyday habits...
  • coffee in the morning
  • bubblebath at night before bed
  • reading in bed before I go to sleep at night
  • sleeping on my right side
  • sleeping about 7 hours every night.  I need my sleep.
  • putting my work clothes out the night before, so that I don't waste time in the morning trying to find something suitable to wear to work
  • grocery shopping for fresh food on Friday afternoons
  • I buy fresh flowers for myself almost every Friday
  • watching the weather on the news most nights
  • listening to news reports.  often.  I'm a real news hound.  I want to know what's going on in the world
  • deep tissue aromatherapy massages every 2 weeks for stress relief
  • carrying water around with me.  drinking water often
  • using labello lip balm 100 times a day
  • making lists
  • checking my favourite blogs almost every morning
  • taking multivitamins, vitamin C, omega 3 & 6 and an antioxidant every day
  • counting things.  I'm a bit obsessive compulsive

I'm working on cultivating more good habits and consistency around health, exercise, eating well, making time for creativity, connecting with friends and family.  I'm working on letting go of some of my bad habits.


  1. What a lovely post my friend. I think good habits are what keeps life sane (for some this is translated as boring!!! LOL!!!)

  2. I am so glad that I finally got around to visit your blog. Thank you for your kind comment at the time of my father's death.

    This is a wonderful "getting to know you" post.

  3. Habits - this gives us food for thought. Good habits and bad habits. Well done, I am learning new things each day, and loved reading about your habits, makes me think of my own.
