The inauguration and looking forward to the government’s policies and practices being reset made my mind up!
Personally I think I could use a reset in lots of areas as it is predicted to take at least through June to even get healthcare workers, care home residents and over 65s vaccinated in my county due to a lack of vaccine supply. Pandemic sluggishness and bad habits cannot continue and meet my goal of exiting the pandemic in very good health. The ones I want to impact may well sound familiar as it seems they are epidemic along with the pandemic.
So I am going to try to RESET:
My morning routine to include stretching (no matter how chilly it is down on the yoga mat). My daily routine needs to include a walk without the dog as well as a good distance one for her unless it is raining or we have gale force winds again!
My snacking choices. Could I change how I eat to not snack at all without blood sugar crashes? Ideas welcome!
The frequency of reaching for alcohol at 4 PM. I didn’t drink at all for 3 years when recovering from a severe health problem so I know I can do it when motivated.
My tendency to withdraw under stress rather than reach out. I have friends and family who love me and I need to connect with them more.
Aimlessly surfing the internet vs engaging in some more fulfilling activity. My only real hobby is reading so I need more ways of happily spending time.
That seems like enough very large changes. I am liking having monthly areas of focus to be more productive. January has been on finances and all I have left is to select the right TurboTax software for our situation and clear out paper financial files.
I’ve picked technology for February - updating, organizing/decluttering, and backing up. It may have to continue into March!
Are you feeling the need for or planning any changes as the pandemic continues?
