Habit Personality Type: Obliger

I signed up for this class because the 21 day productivity course was so amazing + helpful. I'd love to improve on my habit changing skills like I was able to improve my productivity.

My proudest habit is my healthy breakfast routine. I am diligent about starting my day off with a healthy smoothie, bowl of gluten-free oats when it's too cold or eggs with veggies. 


-------


Keystone Habit: Journal for at least 10 minutes every day.

I've been drawn to the idea of morning pages + also the concept of working on writing daily to become a better writer. Combining the two seems efficient but also removes the pressure to specifically write morning pages if I'm not feeling up for it + want to just write a poem instead.

Trigger 1: Journal while eating breakfast.

Trigger 2: Journal when Jawbone UP bed alert goes off {warning me to get ready for bed}.

Since I have a daily habit of eating breakfast + want to make sure I avoid working while I eat {since I'm self-employed}, journaling at the kitchen counter or dining table would keep me away from electronics while I nosh on my food.

Rewards

  • post to instagram (create a hashtag to use + treat followers as accountability partners)

  • repeating task item on digital to do list for the first month

Intention

When I sit down to eat/drink my breakfast, I will journal for at least 10 minutes because I am the type of person who values creativity + self reflection.

One of my reminders is also helpful for the environment!
