Chic Habits: Speak and Think Positively, Tidy Up as You Go
I only managed to score one out of three with last week's Chic Habits list. A very poor turnout Fifi.
I struck 100% with grooming, managing to shave my legs three times in the week, body exfoliation 2-3 times and total body application of lotion every day. I have been keeping this up beyond the week too, so the habit is getting more... habitual.
As for going to bed early, maybe twice I managed that. I probably had more late nights than usual. I was rebelling against myself!
The last one, my new 'early face wash' I just kept forgetting to do, and then it was bedtime when I do it anyway. So I'm not going to worry about that for now. Even though I did read somewhere else it was a good thing to do. I just couldn't find the webpage with the reason why. Dang old links.
This week my two chic habits I will be cultivating are:
Speak and think positively. This will be more pleasant for me and the people around me. It will also be quite a challenge. I can at times be cynical and sarcastic. I don't like these qualities in others and wish to minimise them in myself. Rather than notice a bad point about someone (whether I verbalise it or not) I will pick out a good point and focus on that. Whatever you think - positively or negatively becomes more over time. I want my life to be heading in the positive direction.
Tidy up as I go. Both at home and at work. Picking up and putting away, tidying and cleaning as I go makes for a calming and easy to live with home and work environment. If I notice something, fix it. Don't just walk past and let it be noticed a second or third time. I know that each time you do that, a tiny wee bit of energy leaks out of you, and yet I still do it!
If you'd care to join me, please let us know what chic habits you would like to bring into your life, either on your own blog or in the comments here.
