SETTING HEALTHY LIFE HABITS.

living room

 

You guys who read my blog know I’m all about self-improvement. But sometimes the days fly by and before you know it, things have been pushed to the side and all you want to do past 5pm is have a nap, and be fed snacks.

With that in mind I thought for today’s post I would tell you the healthy life habits I’m challenging myself to start doing, and why I came up with them in the first place..

  1. DON’T PRESUME.

I’m not entirely sure when this started, but I’ve noticed that I do it a lot. And its not a fantastic quality I want to have. I always presume that people haven’t done the things I asked them to do, and that I’ll have to do them on top of what I already have to do. I know, first world problems.

When actually, they probably might of done them! Give them the bloody benefit of the doubt, girl. I’m panicking and being negative over nothing. Plus, who wants to come home and moan at the BF for not doing the dish-washer. I’m not about that life. (This was quite rambly but I hope you get where I’m coming from)

2. SET BOUNDARIES

This is something I’ve been doing recently, and guess what? Shocker, it works. When you have to have certain people in your life that have a negative impact on you, setting boundaries around them is the best way to go. Unfortunately sometimes you can’t just cut those people out of your life. I try to focus on limiting my time around them to as little as possible, and when they are in the vicinity I try not to give them my whole attention, while I’m sure they love 😉

3. DON’T FEEL GUILTY ABOUT SPENDING MONEY

Because I’m saving for the wedding, I never tend to treat myself and always feel guilty if I buy anything thats not essential i.e food. But in reality, buying yourself a little something now and again really cheers me up, no matter how materialistic that seems. Aslong as I’m reaching my saving goal, I’m allowed to have a little Boots haul when I feel like it! *talking to self*

 

Do you have any new habits you’re trying to do?

  • These are great habits to work on! I definitely need to try and stop presuming so much!
    I’ve been trying to incorporate more movement into every day and be more active, whether that be doing something like yoga or just simply getting outside for a walk at lunch time!
    That’s a lovely cozy corner there – your pup looks soo cute and comfy! hehe :p

    • Thank you for reading Lauren! I love yoga and getting outside for a walk too, which is a daily occurrence thanks to the pup 🙂

  • I love this Natalie! I’m trying to work on not overthinking. It’s definitely not worth all of the worry, sleepless nights and unnecessary stress!

  • I’ve definitely felt that feeling of buying something really nice as a proper treat, especially if you haven’t done it in a while. And just one item will do it for me! A while back, I wrote a post on toxic friendships like this, which I’ll link to you below if you want to check it out. But yes, getting rid of those negative vibes WILL do you wonders!
