Vacation Reset: 3 Habits I Want to Change.
Ahh vacation. Such a wonderful time for some self reflection. I love getting away from my routines. It’s so easy for me to fall into habits in my day to day life without really being intentional about if that habit is something I want to be doing. It’s nice to get away, reset, and come back home being intentional about what habits I keep and what habits I let go of. Vacation are a great time for behavior audit.
So here are 3 behaviors I wanna change:
1. Getting on my phone first thing in the morning.
As soon as my alarm goes off (after snoozing it several times), I grab my phone and check emails/Instagram immediately. I’d love to have a morning routine that doesn’t involve social media/work. Have you guys heard of the 6-minute Miracle Morning? I’ve listened to a couple podcasts on it. From what I understand, you choose to wake up earlier (rather than just waking up and having to immediately get ready for work) and complete your 6-minute morning routine. I want to try. (obvi if you are trying to get out of an exercise obsession you shouldn’t do step 6.)
2. Avoiding Houston’s trails because I figure they all stink.
We don’t have any plans to move to California anytime soon (insert sad face). Houston is an affordable place to live and I don’t want Andrew or me to have to work for forever AND both Andrew and I love being close to our parents. While Houston doesn’t have epic trails that lead to the ocean…they do have trails.
If you’ve been following along on IG, you know I’ve been going to the Houston Arboretum a lot lately. I like it because it’s only for hiking. There are rules and you aren’t supposed to run or bike on the trails. It’s supposed to be a calm and peaceful place. There are people who occasionally run by me and on the inside I’m all yelling, “didn’t you read the rules!!!” I’d love to meet clients their for walk & talk appointments in the future. It’s only 5 minutes away from one of the offices I see clients at and 10 minutes away from my house.
I’ve loved my arboretum experience every time I’ve been, except on Sunday when Andrew and I were there this dog tried to eat Maggie. If you can’t control you dog/didn’t make effort to socialize it properly, I’m not sure you should be at a place where children are. And if you are (perhaps you got you dog later his/her life and didn’t have the chance to socialize it), you should know your dog and know if your pup should have a muzzle on.
3. Getting stuck in restaurant food ruts.
Houston has incredible food! I tend to not get too excited for Thai/Asian/Chinese food…I just want to eat Mexican food for every meal! But after having Ramen in LA and LOVING it, I want to find an epic Ramen and/or Pho restaurant in Houston that is “our place”. Also wanna try milk tea from this place that serves milk tea in a light bulb. Wait…what? A lightbulb? YES!
Are there any behaviors you’d like to reset?
