Smile The Habit Thread

Anyone want to share what new habits they're working on incorporating into their lives? or bad habits they're trying to break?


The current habits I'm working on include:

Doing 10 sit-ups a day (I know this isn't much at all, I'm starting off slow because if I overdo at first I end up getting overwhelmed and not sticking with it. Trying to build consistency first.

Cutting Back on caffeine: I'm a little crazy about coffee and need to slow down because it's affecting my sleep and worsening some of my anxiety.

I'll be checking in until I get these ingrained into my life then I'll start working on more habits I want to acquire.

Hope others join in

I would like to drink more water. I know it seems simple and ludicrous but I do not like water- i just dont. I prefer to make crystal light or unsweetened iced tea or iced coffee. I can drink it down but I just dont care for it. I know it will help me with everything from my skin to my body's health and I need to drink more of it. Anyone wanna share tips on drinking more water when you dont really like it?

Have you tried seltzer water? There's also lots of things you can find online about infused water where you put in different pieces of fruit into it

Did the 10 sit-ups today, as for caffeine I had 4 cups of coffee. That's actually good so far because I was drinking nearly 10 cups a day The Habit Thread now to just make it through the rest of the day with water and herbal teas

Yes I love seltzer thats all the "soft drinks" we have in the house. Does that hydrate you the same way water will?

I believe so, it's still water, just carbonated and with natural flavors in some so I think it'd still hydrate you

Also it doesn't have caffeine in it like regular sodas which can dehydrate you I think

I am quitting alcohol. I have realized it has a negative effect on me and will be stopping.
