Episode 224: Reinvigorating Habits

It is so easy for even the most ingrained habits to go by the wayside when you have a change in routine or other disruption. This week, Janine and Shannon discuss taking baby steps to reinvigorate your beneficial habits.

Discussion topics include:

  • Janine’s good-enough pre-Halloween raking of leaves
  • How disruption of routine can affect habits
  • Looking forward to the habits you need now, rather than blindly trying to recreate past habits
  • Janine’s daily yoga practice that she’s trying to rejuvenate
  • Allowing small efforts to count when you’re building or rebuilding habits
  • Shannon’s end of-the-day-yoga practice with her husband
  • Another beneficial habit: Making the bed
  • Shannon and Janine’s favorite habit: Working on YNAB (You Need A Budget) every morning
  • Another habit Shannon is reinvigorating, using her Bullet Journal (in concert with Todoist)
  • Janine’s enthusiastic use of her Bullet Journal(s)
  • The value of the Bullet Journal index
  • Pairing new habits with existing ones

As promised, here’s a photo of Shannon’s weekly Bullet Journal spread.

And here’s Janine’s monthly habit tracker from her Bullet Journal. (We used this picture in Episode 188: Bullet Journaling.)
