Rituals

I am a creature of habit.  I love routine and when I am wanting to change something about myself or my life I try to find simple ways to incorporate habits that will create the outcome I want.  I am certainly not perfect at this but have found it works.  I have several goals that I am working on that I need to be more disciplined on and include in my weekly routines; like meal planning and healthy family activities.  But we are getting there!

One of my favorite fun rituals are Sunday nights.  Now that I am working outside of the home more often I can understand how Sunday nights can almost be dreaded.  The end of the weekend is not usually something to look forward to.  One way I have found to make it more enjoyable is my Beauty Night.  On Sunday evenings I take a long bubble bath, use a facial mask and give myself a manicure.  We usually eat snacky food on Sundays for dinner as well so it all adds up to a relaxing night that I have come to look forward to.  I also try to save any magazines that I get during the week to be looked at and read on Sundays.

What are some of your favorite ways to start a habit and change your lifestyle?  What are some of your favorite rituals?  Any beauty secrets I should try?  I’d love to hear what you have to share!
