Getting enough good sleep is key for good health, good memory, good attitude, and even good skin! So why do we sacrifice sleep for so many other things that are less important? Start setting a healthy sleep pattern now, and you’ll find this habit is actually easy to form!


Drink Water

We drink a lot of things during the day — coffee, juice, soda — but how many of us drink water like we know we should? Probably not many of us. This is a good habit I’m trying to form right now. I know I need at least 48 ounces of water each day, and I’m trying to drink more by carrying a reusable water bottle with me everywhere…


Wear SPF

By now we all know how dangerous even a single sunburn can be, and how long-term exposure to the sun, even without a sunburn can cause skin cancer. So why don’t we all wear sunblock every day? This is a good habit you can form that may save your life. Wear sunblock every day!


No Unprotected Sex

This is another good habit you can form that might save your life! Aside from HIV/AIDS, there’s herpes, syphilis, and so many other nasty STDs out there… so why risk it? One exposure can change your life forever, so always, ALWAYS use protection when you have sex!


Healthful Eating

Junk food is fast and easy. But it’s so bad for you! It may take a little more time and effort to eat more healthful foods, but it’s worth it. This is another good habit you can form now for better health and even better beauty! And who doesn’t want to be healthier and more beautiful?

This good habit has been the hardest one for me to get into… it takes a lot of motivation, but my inspiration is simple. I want to be around for as long as I can to see my daughters grow. And I want to be able to keep up with them! It’s also nice to be able to fit into m jeans, and to have killer abs…


Be on Time!

According to me boyfriend, I have a horrible concept of time, and though I try to be 5 minutes early for everything, I end up being 5 minutes late. So now I’m trying to make a habit of being ten minutes early… so maybe now I can be on time!

These are just the good habits I’m trying to form myself… I know there are so many more we can all be working on… yikes! What good habits are you working to form, and why? Please let me know!
