Did you know that it was National Backwards Day yesterday?!
Did you get to celebrate?? :D
I have never heard of this day, and had no idea that January 31st was National Backwards Day, until the Calm meditation app informed me. I love this idea, and I think everyday should be NB Day! Why?! Because! We get so stuck in our habits/patterns. Same shit, different day, right? Same maladaptive coping skills, different day. Same toxic patterns, different day. Lol!
And so. Why not wake up everyday and have the mindset of: hey! It's a different day. I can start fresh. I can do things differently. I can start a new habit. I can start a new pattern that actually serves me instead of holds me back. I can get out of bed as soon as I wake up and brush my teeth, and do 20 minutes of exercise. When I have the urge to go on social media, I'll call my favorite person in the world and tell them that I love them and appreciate them instead. When I see myself focusing more on the things I don't enjoy about my life, I'll start practicing gratitude instead.
It's a new day and a new month! What new habits are you wanting to engage in?
