Hello, everyone! And how’s your Tuesday? I wish the sun had stayed for a couple more days, but we’ve had it for over a week, so it had to end at some point. Keeping my fingers crossed to have it again soon! How’s the weather like in your country? And where are you living? Write it down below!
I’m too excited to share with you this post today! This has helped me a lot with new things I want to try and I’m so happy that you’ll get to give a try too! I found out last year that any new habits you want to have/develop take 2 weeks to be fully understood and taken by our organism/brain/body/etc. I didn’t quite believe this, but in a way, it made sense, so I decided to put it to the test! I started with something I had wanted to do for a few months: drink more water! For 2 weeks, I kept 2 bottles of 1.5lt in my fridge so that I would have them easily during the day. That’s also another great tip: just prepare whatever you want to do/drink/eat because it will be a lot easier to be reminded that thing is right there, easy to grab. I will share more tips on drinking water in other post, if you want so. I have to tell you it WORKED! By the end of the second week, I didn’t even have to think about drinking, I just would. My body got used to it and would ask for it a lot more.
I did this experience with a few other things: brushing my teeth after lunch – sorry if this is disgusting for you, but I truly didn’t have this habit, so I made myself have it; a skin care routine in the morning and at night – including removing my make-up completely and using moisturiser and tonic and a facial cream; use more products than just shampoo on my hair – I hate this because I’ve never done anything to my hair -ever- but I decided to start using a few oils here and then. I’m doing it twice a week now – totally worked!
Give it a try! I’m sure you’ll love this! You just have to think that it’s only for 2 weeks and then you’re hooked and you’ve made yourself have a new habit! Let me know if you try this and how it works for you!
Happy routin’ing, catreaders!
