In a few weeks, I will be starting marathon training, hiring a new technician, hiring a new bedside delivery tech, hiring a new pharmacist, and starting a new session of school (two weeks left in this one!). There will be a lot going on, and I want to make sure I don't let the good habits slide.
I was looking for an app to help me remember to do those basic, everyday tasks - like taking out my contacts and doing my Myrtles hip routine - and I downloaded Productive. It lets you put in day-to-day tasks, and as you check them off, it records habit streaks and other data. Mostly it's just a memory aid for me!
Some daily habits I added:
- Do planks
- Take vitamins. After getting so sick a few weeks ago, I added probiotics and a vitamin C/antioxidant/immune booster to my Bone Up supplement.
- Read Bible
- Do strength. This marathon training cycle, I want to try adding some kind of strength in every single day. I don't want to get injured, and my once a week Iron Strength workouts were not enough!
Weekly habits include:
- Remove contacts (they're extended-wear, but if I had it my way I'd wear them until they dissolved on my eyeball)
- Foam roll
- Do PT. Even though I'm doing some kind of strength training every day and Myrtles each morning, I want to make sure I go through a full round of hip PT moves every week. I can't do too much to protect my hips!
I'm only a few days into the program, and so far it is a good reminder of those little tasks. Have you ever used a habit app? How do you keep up with those little everyday things we tend to skip?
