I just decided to reassess my resolutions and lessen them somewhat, mostly because I'm not acheiving them anyway and might as well adjust them so they are reasonable - which will help me focus better. I read an article by a blogger I'm fond of and realized I had made way too many resolutions.
I am starting a new habit today though - meditating 10 minutes before sleeping each night. This said to choose a trigger - something you do every day, after which you do the new habit. I eventually realized that there are only about 3 things I do every day:
- wake up
- eat breakfast (actually, I don't on weekends)
- go to bed
As for the meditating, I know of a few ways to do it including technology like Holosync and just trying to clear your mind, but a new technique I've found says just think "in" as you breathe in, and "out" as you breathe out. Repeat. I shall try it tonight.
