It’s 2018 and just like everyone else, I like to believe that a new year gives us a chance to start anew. So, for my first blog post this year, I’d like to make a list of things that I’d try my best to quit for a healthier, maybe wealthier, and better me.
BAD HABIT #1: Drinking Carbonated Drinks
I’m not really a big soda drinker but I do have it from time to time. We all know how much sugar there is in a can and since I’m trying my best to lose all of the holiday weight, quitting soft drinks could be a great start to lose some.
BAD HABIT #2: Sleeping late and Waking up late
I have really sensitive and acne-prone skin and staying up late (even when it’s not necessary) might really be a huge contributor to my break outs. So, as much as possible, I’d try and sleep as early as I can unless it’s needed for school/ work.
BAD HABIT #3: Overspending on food and coffee
Okay, I have a loooong love-hate relationship with food. Most of my allowance are spent on food and it’s really taking a toll on my financial stability. I’m also a huge coffee drinker so buying overpriced coffee has been and is still a problem that I have. I just can’t resist a good coffee.
But since I don’t want to start this year broke and over caffeinated, I promise to indulge on coffee for only twice per day (contrary to my normal 3-5 cups/day).
BAD HABIT #4: Sitting all the time
Just like most millennials, I’m glued to my seat, laptop, and smart phone all the time. I want to change this for a healthier me. So, I promise to try my best to move more and be active.
BAD HABIT #5: Making excuse all the time
Whether it’s to start working out, working on work, or working on academics, I swear to stop on making excuses to stall it every time. So long as I don’t have a valid excuse, I’d try my very best not to procrastinate and make excuses.
BAD HABIT #6: Binge eating
I have this really bad habit of going on diets, then cheating and binge eating all day. I know that it’s really bad for my body and overall lifestyle so this year, I’m going to take it slow and even if I cheat on my diet, I’ll gather all self-control to not overeat.
BAD HABIT #7: Wearing too much makeup
As much as possible, I’d focus more on skincare to salvage my acne-filled skin. And I guess one of the best ways to do that is by wearing less makeup or by wearing makeup only when it’s necessary. So on days where I don’t really need it, I’ll try not to wear any.
That’s all that I can think of for now but when I want to add something else, I’ll just update this post. But that’s pretty much it.
I’m actually putting this into writing (and into my blog) to have a reminder and to keep myself accountable for my actions. Please wish me luck!
