Wheeeee there goes another month!
Had a grand day yesterday, in a low-key but chuffed-with-it way 🙂 I’ve been reading Better Than Before, on habit-formation, and loving it, and wanted to take copious notes (my new ‘thing’ is all about taking lots of notes!). But it’s a library book, and due back tomorrow, with still >half the book to go. So, took myself off to the Virgin Money Lounge, managed to grab a table (it’s all free, so very often full – I got turned away last time), and sat for 2 hours (it was surprisingly quiet, actually – maybe everyone was outdoors enjoying the sunshine?) killing my hand scribbling enough notes that it’d be quicker to just buy the book (ah, but I was taking so much more in!), drinking free coffee, listening to A Beautiful Mind OST in an attempt not to mentally join in the French lesson happening at the next table! 🙂
I’d love to make this a regular thing: pitch up there on a Saturday for a bit and scribble, distraction-free – maybe I could actually write that book, eh?! Will have to experiment to see how the busyness alters, but I’ve had this ‘thing’ about sitting writing in coffee shops for such a long time, is nice to actually get myself to do it.
Before that I cashed in a Boots voucher for half price sunglasses – I used to hate sunglasses (as a glasses wearer, I guess) but have been feeling the need. And afterwards, I handed my library returns back in at a later-opening branch than mine, and got half my groceries for the week – aubergine! Courgette! Who is this person I’m turning into?! LOL!
Also managed to stick to my bedtime routine and early night for the first time all week – slept from half ten through to half eight, with just a few disturbed periods (neighbour has new boyf – urgh!). Feeling SO much better for it!
Today the weather has turned very un-sunglasses-y, as expected, and I’m trying to muster the courage to go try a new yoga class – well, since I’m on a roll of doing things I’ve fancied for a while…! 🙂 I do feel better when I do stuff, it’s just the chivying myself into starting. Which is where habits and scheduling come in, eventually.
Loads of blog posts to come on the habit stuff – I’m feeling very inspired with it all! Ooh and big shout out to HabitRPG – I’ve been tracking my habits, dailies and to-dos there for ‘coins’, and rather enjoying it.
