blogging, forming habits, habit loop, habits, pic, quotes, Reward, routine, three Rs, writing
After a month of internet exile and one filled with finishing up my masters it is now time to get back to blogging. The only problem is: where to start?
After all after months of absence and my days filled with mundane tasks and the usual daily grind it seems I have fallen out of the habit of coming up with ideas. But then new habits are hard to form and take about 21 days to actually stick (they also take three weeks to dissolve).
For the next month my goal is to create a new ‘habit loop’ by reminding myself of what I want to do and following the three Rs, allow the routine to take and then reward myself for following through – a cup of tea or a 15minute break or maybe even just a pat on my shoulder.
Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken
Welcome back! I hope you find inspiration around every corner – or, rather, you recognise the inspiration that is there. 🙂
trying – looking for a job at the moment … tedious and soul destroying
Oh yes, it is both. Will pray that you get something soon!
thanks so much and keep me in mind if you hear of anything
Yes, will do of course.
