I would like to get better sleep and more exercise.  But to enjoy every day more than I am now would be the most important.

I believe the best (and probably the most painful) is to go "cold turkey". I've heard it takes about seven days to develop a habit, so I would think between seven to 10 days without sweets or crunch snacks should do it. I do know that popcorn is a healthy snack (if you don't add butter, and not too much salt!). Furthermore on crunch, if you can control yourself, you could eat 1/3 cup of walnuts. They are good for your heart, and will run about 220 calories. Plus, they satisfy your appetite. Good Luck!

I would like to be more consistent in exercise or yoga. I have a nice basement setup with everything from a total gym, balance balls, videos, music and resistance bands. I just can’t get the enthusiasm to get going. I may start to do a daily program for a week, then something breaks that pattern and it’s hard to get it back.

Winter is so hard to keep up dieting and exercize - I will start again to drink more water, try to do some exercizing every day (stairs, walking, stretching) - and each day is one more closer to Spring and Summer with warmer weather!

I would love to start a new moring routine with meditation and yoga.  I think once I get started it could become a morning habit and a very grounded way to start my day!  Right now my day is started with a rush to the coffee pot and then the shower and into rush hour traffic.  By starting the day with a more relaxed attitude and peace of mind - my days would be relatively stressfree - leaving me more in tune with those I am surrounded by.

I would stop eating my feelings and instead, express them, deal with them and embrace them.

Dis-enroll in Facebook and Twitter.

 

Hear me out.

 

For me anyway, these social media worlds worsen my dispair that civil discourse still exists (Twitter), and inflame my tendency to engage in FOMO (fear of missing out) and tendancy in general to compare my life to others' and find it--and myself--lacking. (Facebook) 

 

The healthier habit I'd like to engage is connecting one-on-one (yes, in many cases it will be thru emails, texts, and instant messaging) with those I care about. The idea is to focus more on my own life than that of others. As a new empty nester aged 57, I feel I am still discovering who I am and what I life. Less healthy habits may be a reflection of my dissatisfaction and feeling of lack.

I would walk at least 30 minutes a day. I used to do it with a friend, but our schedules changed and I got too busy with other stuff. I need to take time for me.

I need to take time for myself.  I work five days a week and usually work more  than a eight hour shift.  I am going full speed from the time I work through  the office door.

 

My mind and body needs time to shut off so that my mind and body can just dream .
