50+ music playlists for focused work

Tidbit of the Day: Starting new habits

Do you have a list of new habits you would love to start on but somehow have no motivation to do so?  One way to work around this would be to start your habits on a “milestone day”, as Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project describes here:

 

 

In general, I’m a fan of using milestone days to prompt me to think about changes I might undertake to make myself happier, healthier, more productive, or more creative.

Certain days, such as January 1 or my birthday,  remind me to reflect on my life and my hopes for the future.  Recently, Inauguration Day prompted me to think about the highest ideals of the United States, and how I can live up to them, in my own life.
