We all have them.
Recently, I have tried to put considerable effort toward breaking my bad habits. They include:
- Scrolling social media upon first waking up. This habit seems to be quite common among my peers. Even if I don’t grab my phone the second I open my eyes, it’s no better that I grab it before my feet even touch the floor. I try to fix this by not sleeping with my phone under my pillow (another bad habit). Instead, I put my phone on my dresser across the room or on my nightstand next to my bed. As long as it’s not in the bed with me.
- Procrastinating. We all do it. Unfortunately, this isn’t an easy fix for me because it is present in several of my life pockets (yes, pockets). A painfully obvious example of this would be the fact that I have not written an entry for this blog since January of LAST YEAR. That’s not nearly as terrible as my journal, in which I have not written since 2012. I won’t tell you the month. Just know that it was 2012. *shakes head in shame* I will say I am a finisher. Sometimes it just takes me a minute.
- Subtweeting. I don’t do it nearly as much as I used to, but doing it at all is too much! I only subtweet about my boyfriend, which is even worse. Hey, first step is admitting!
- Bottling up my emotions and letting them explode at the most inconvenient times. Sporadic crying sessions that I can’t explain because 1) I can’t talk and cry at the same time and 2) I don’t know where to start.
- Not visiting my family. There really is no excuse. I was different when I was on campus. Now? I am down the street and I can’t manage at least a visit a week. Yes, studying for the CPA takes all my time. But that just means I need to MAKE time.
This list makes me happy because if I wrote it when I planned to, it would be much longer. I have implemented so many good habits, that the list above will be a breeze to tackle!
