Habits Are Hard

Advertisements

I’ve been trying to build some new habits in my life. General things like actually vacuum and keep up with laundry. Having ADHD makes that difficult as I kind of need to be praised CONSISTANTLY for doing basic things. Basic isn’t really the right word, more like, non-exciting. There’s an amazing guy on TikTok who has been teaching me how to do things like keeping a clean house, while having my brain be stupid. That reminds me, I need a whiteboard…

I suck at keeping things in my house clean. Talking with my wife, she was saying how the bathroom can be a bit of a problem sometimes. That’s fair, so I decided I was going to try and help as best I can. There’s the little sticky toilet cleaning things that stick to the inside of the bowl, which I bought. Clean toilet, get first step for me! I even bought refills for the thingy, thing. Next huge thing I did was buy those disposable wipes. The cleaning surfaces ones, because not every mess made in the bathroom requires a whole cleaning crew. Plus, if depression strikes and cleaning the bathroom no longer matters, I can kind of keep things bearable.

Besides Cleaning

I’m trying to read more. It’s not that I don’t like reading, because I love reading, I just, sit. I don’t know, it’s just, hard to stay focused. There was some “self help” post I read on Pinterest forever ago saying “you should read for 10 minutes before bed” or something like that, which isn’t a bad idea. Now, ten minutes is lame, so I figured, why not read a chapter at a time. That’s it. I’ve even got a cute lamp next to my bed, this has helped. I may actually finish some books this year!

Saving money has always been a weird one for me. As of late, I’ve been trying a new thing where I put the few cents left after a transaction into my savings account. That makes sense, haha, cents, sense? I made myself laugh again... I’d like to be able to do things like, go to England again, and maybe actually fix my damn trailer...

My big thing though is trying to remember to take care of myself, which shouldn’t be as hard as it is. I’ve been trying to workout more and even start eating better too. I was challenged with adding more colours to my meals, so kale and spinach or some neat green things to eat. Don’t judge me, I’m doing my best...

No Matter What

I just have to remember to be somewhat consistent, and make sure I’m doing this for me, not because I was told to. Who doesn’t want thicc gains and a nice clean house? But yeah, that’s my life at the moment. Thanks for stopping by, and be safe out there!

    It sounds like you’re doing amazing to me! Habits are definitely difficult to form but I think it’s more about finding a routine that suits you that’s the hard bit. Btw your cats are so gorgeous!
