Happy Reminder Board (special appearance by Dora the Cat) from Britt Bravo on Vimeo.
Whether I'm working with bloggers and creative entrepreneurs, or talking with a friend, everyone I know is trying to grow good habits. They want to write "morning pages," meditate, exercise, blog, cook dinner, make art, stretch, drink 8 glasses of water, eat healthier, and give thanks more often (sound familiar?).
When I've asked people about what helps them keep good habits, they say:
- Enjoying the process
- Enjoying the result
- Having fun
- Having a role model, or mentor
- Keeping the habit with a buddy, or partner
- Making it a ritual (rather than a goal)
- Being accountable to someone else
- Being accountable to only themselves
- Having a system, or structure
- Feeling grateful
In the little 3-minute video (above), I'll show you the awesome gift the hubs made for me that I've been calling my "Happy Reminder Board." As some of you know, during the 40 days before I turned 40, I did a daily practice of moving, playing, reflecting and connecting. By the time my birthday came around, I felt great! In 2012, I'm trying to grow the good habit of doing these four things every day, and I've been using my Happy Reminder Board to help me.
If you want help growing your blogging or creative habits, let me know! I love working with folks one-on-one. Also, let me know if you want a Happy Reminder Board. Maybe the hubs will make you one too!
