New Year, New Habits

New year, new me? I don't really like that saying very much, purely because I'm not the one thats changing, I'm still me. Its the things I do in my daily life that I want to change and/or switch up. Thats why I came up with 'new year, new habits'. I've compiled a small list of 'habits', if you will, that I want to try and integrate into my day to day life this year. Lets just hope I'm able to stick to them! 

READ BEFORE BED

I've specifically put 'read before bed', purely because it gives me a time and place to actually sit down and read. I used to love reading, and as I got older I just sort of stopped. I want to try and read fiction and non-fiction in equal parts, as I enjoy both. Especially with being a uni student now, I need to be picking up all the books I can!

GO TO THE GYM TWO-THREE TIMES A WEEK

I have officially rejoined the gym. I've been twice this past week, which I feel is already a great achievement haha. I desperately want to get my fitness levels up, because I'm pretty sure my lack of exercise is why I feel tired and gross most of the time. Listening to music at the gym definitely helps to keep me motivated as well, and I couldn't recommend the Sudio Sweden Tre Pink Earphones* enough. They're bluetooth headphones, which means you don't have to connect them to your phone. I find this so convenient for the gym, as theres no wire getting in your way when you're using the equipment. 

DON'T SNOOZE THE ALARM

I am very guilty of this. I will keep snoozing my alarm until its literally 10 minutes before I need to leave the house. This is never good, as it doesn't set me up for the day very well. It means I don't have time to do my hair and makeup properly, which inevitably makes me feel worse off as the day goes on. So, heres to getting up the first time my alarm goes off. 

Soooooo, there we have my lil list of new habits I hope to incorporate into my daily life this year!

  2. I'm with you on the alarm snoozing habit! I'm not a morning person but reading this made me realise I need to be stronger! You can do it and so do I! I can't do the gym thing however I'll be back to swimming soon! This was a lovely post to read and very inspiring, thank you! x

  3. I want to start reading before bed too! I always find myself aimlessly on my phone rather than just reading. Also I'm the same with the gym, I used to be so good at going but lately lost all motivation and it's made me feel very lethargic not going. I really want a pair of wireless headphones because if I ever do ab stuff I get in a fluster of where to keep my phone. Love the picture you used for this post, and the post itself x

    1. Thats my issue as well, aimlessly scrolling through social media rather than reading a book! Would highly recommend the Sudio Tre headphones, they're really good and the colour is so cute! Thanks Libby!

    1. Its quite difficult to read when you have loads of uni work to get done as well!

  5. This is a healthier mindset to have rather than focusing on changing yourself as a person, good luck with all of them, they seem very do-able and realistic.

  11. I love reading too, but these days I'd rather scroll through my phone or play games which is soo bad! I'm also an absolute nightmare for setting myself three alarms and sleeping through two of them.. xo
