Can a Small Habit be Too Small Pt. II: My Self-destructive Tendencies (10 Minute Clean-up Habit, Update #2)

We are 2 weeks into this new habit! This week was fairly uneventful – mostly because I spent the latter half of the week away from home as we were visiting family for Thanksgiving. While I was home, I found it very easy to complete this habit…almost too easy.

Can a Small Habit be too Small?

I’m beginning to feel like my small habit might be too small. I’ve been doing it for 20 days now and I’m beginning to feel restless, like there’s more that I could be doing. Deja vu…

Introducing my first habit

Welcome to The Habit Tracker! If you’ve read the ‘About’ page, then you know that I started tracking my habits in January 2019 (just 3 months before this post was written) as part of my New Years Resolution. What you might not have gotten from the ‘About’ page is that I chose my first habit out of necessity. I found myself waking up late and groggy every morning, causing me to rush to work.
