Question 7: How would you like to improve yourself and your life next year? Is there a piece of advice or counsel you received in the past year that could guide you?
I would like to take better care of myself and my home. That isn’t to say I don’t, but there is no routine around it. Currently I am trying to build morning and evening routines that make my days start better. That is going fairly well. Sure, there are hiccups some days, but it isn’t the end of the world — which my perfectionism has certainly gotten in the way of in previous attempts at this. So yeah — I would like to be more consistent in my exercise and yoga practice, I would like to take better care of my body through hygiene (not like, the basics, but self pampering and such), and I’d like to eat better, consistently, because I like how it makes me feel when I do. I would also like to have a cleaning routine in place for my home. That would be nice. Hopefully all of that can happen by next year.
As for a piece of advice or counsel from the past — don’t be so hard on yourself. You’re doing the best you can.
