healthy habitsYesterday you targeted one bad habit and today you’re going to add one healthy habit!

Okay, if the thought of incorporating a new habit is too much right now, it can be just for today.

Like all Daily Shoring tips, the most important thing is one positive action each day.  You can make it as simple or challenging as suits you at the time.

If you need something simple, how about–

  • Leave 10 minutes early today for work/appointments/school so you don’t feel rushed
  • Take 5 minutes before leaving home to straighten up a bit so things are more calm when you return
  • Stretch for 5 minutes at the end of your day
  • Take 5 minutes for diaphragmatic breathing–if you don’t know what that is, here’s a link:

If you’re up for more of a challenge, what routines in your life need improving?

Are you always rushed, eating poorly, not exercising, procrastinating?  Choose a focus area then add one concrete step toward change that you can commit to for the next 10 days.  Need help holding yourself accountable?  Here’s a link to The Best Goal Setting Apps.
