LOVJOY 21 day Habits challenge

Embrace the Chaos, One Habit at a Time

Welcome to the circus of motherhood, where every day feels like juggling flaming torches while riding a unicycle. But here’s a secret: tiny habits can be your safety net amidst this delightful madness. These small, consistent changes are like magic beans that grow into a beanstalk of transformation, leading you to a happier, healthier you. 


It’s not about overhauling your life overnight; it’s about those little tweaks that make a big difference. So, let’s start this fun-filled journey of habit transformation, one giggle at a time!


Start Small and Simple: 


Pick a habit so easy you can’t say no: Think of drinking water first thing in the morning or a two-minute meditation during your coffee break.


Link New Habits to Existing Ones: Already have a cup of tea every morning? Stack a new habit on top of it, like writing a one-sentence gratitude note.


Embrace Imperfection: Missed a day? No sweat! Habits are marathons, not sprints. Just hop back on the habit horse the next day.


Set Reminders: Use sticky notes, phone alarms, or even a designated ‘habit buddy’ to remind you of your new habit. A little nudge goes a long way.


Visualize Success: Spend a minute visualizing yourself succeeding in your new habit. See yourself glowing with pride. It’s like a high-five for your brain!

Remember, lovely chaos-conductors; this is just the beginning. Each small habit is a step towards a happier, healthier you. 

So, let’s turn those everyday moments into opportunities for growth and giggles. Here’s to embracing the chaos, one habit at a time, and transforming it into a symphony of self-care and joy! 🎪✨


Decoding Your Daily Dance: The Atomic Habits Groove

Welcome to the backstage of your life, where we decode the dance moves of your daily routine. Think of your habits as the steps in this dance – some are like the graceful waltz, others more like the cha-cha slide at a wedding reception.


Let’s use the Atomic Habits framework, with its catchy rhythm of cue, craving, response, and reward, which helps us understand why we do what we do and how we can change it. It’s like being the choreographer of your own life’s dance!


Identify Your Cues: Notice the triggers that start your habit dance. Is it a time, a place, an emotional state? Recognizing these cues is like finding the beat in a song.


Understand Your Cravings: What are you really craving when you reach for that mid-afternoon cookie? Is it comfort, a break, or just boredom? Understanding this helps you change the music.


Modify Your Response: Time to change the dance steps. If your cue is stress and your response is snacking, try a quick walk or a breathing exercise instead.


Reward Yourself: Choose a reward that makes your brain do the happy dance. Finished a workout? Enjoy a relaxing shower or a few minutes of quiet time.


Track Your Progress: Like counting your dance steps, track your habits. Use a habit tracker app or a good old-fashioned calendar. Gold stars, anyone?


By understanding the rhythm of your habits, you can start changing your day’s choreography. It’s not about perfection; it’s about progress. Each step and change is a twirl towards a more joyful, fulfilling life. So, let’s lace up those dancing shoes and groove our way to better habits, one two-step at a time! 💃🕺✨


Habit Hacks for the Heroic Mom

Alright, superhero moms, it’s time to don your capes (or, let’s be real, your comfy, sporty pants) and dive into some habit hacks made just for you. You’re already juggling kids, work, and what feels like a million other things, so let’s add some nifty tricks to your super-mom utility belt.


These habit hacks are designed to seamlessly blend into your action-packed life, giving you the power to forge new habits without adding to the chaos.


• Micro-Habits for the Win: Think tiny, like doing five squats while waiting for the kettle to boil or taking three deep breaths before checking emails. Small actions, big impact!


• Use Technology to Your Advantage: Set reminders on your phone for new habits, or use apps that gamify habit formation. Who says you can’t have a little tech sidekick?


• Involve the Kids: Turn habit formation into a family affair. Racing to see who can put away toys the fastest? That’s a habit-building game right there.


• The Night-Before Strategy: Each night, lay out anything you’ll need for your new habit the next day. Yoga mat by the bed? Check. Water bottle filled and ready? Double-check.


• Celebrate All Victories: Made your bed this morning? That’s a high-five moment. Celebrate the small wins to keep the motivation high.

You’re not just a mom; you’re a habit-forming powerhouse with a heart of gold and the stealth of a ninja.

These habit hacks aren’t just about adding new routines; they’re about empowering you to be the best version of yourself amidst the beautiful chaos of motherhood. So, give yourself a superhero’s cheer – you’re not just surviving the mom life, you’re thriving in it! 🦸‍♀️✨🌟


Habit Stacking: Like Tetris, But With Self-Care

Welcome to the game of Habit Tetris, where we stack habits instead of blocks! Habit stacking is a nifty trick where you add a new habit onto an existing one, creating a combo-move in your daily routine. It’s like creating a self-care sandwich, with your current habits as the bread and new habits as the delicious filling.


This method is perfect for busy moms because it seamlessly integrates new habits into your already packed schedule, making self-care as routine as brushing your teeth (which, by the way, is a great habit to stack on!).


• Identify Anchor Habits: These are habits you already do without thinking, like brewing your morning coffee or brushing your teeth. They’re your habit stacking anchors.


• Attach a New Habit: Want to read more? How about reading a page or two while your coffee brews? Or doing a quick stretch after brushing your teeth?


• Keep the New Habit Short: The key is to start with something so small and easy that it’s almost impossible not to do it. Think one minute of meditation or writing one sentence in a journal.


• Consistency is Queen: The more consistently you stack the new habit onto the old one, the stronger the link becomes. It’s like building a bridge between two islands of your day.


• Celebrate the Stack: Every time you successfully stack a habit, give yourself a mental high five. You’re not just completing tasks; you’re building a self-care empire, one stack at a time.

Habit stacking is like a secret life hack for busy moms. It’s about making self-care fit into your life, not the other way around.

So, let’s stack those habits like a pro and watch as your day transforms into a beautifully orchestrated symphony of self-care and productivity. Here’s to stacking, thriving, and winning at the mom game, one habit at a time! 🌟📚🧘‍♀️


Overcoming the ‘Oops’ Moments

Alright, fabulous moms, let’s talk about those ‘oops’ moments – when plans go sideways, and your well-intentioned habits fall off the radar. Maybe the dog did eat your yoga mat, or perhaps the kids painted the cat instead of their canvas—life’s unpredictable, especially in the whirlwind of motherhood. But fear not! These hiccups don’t mean your habit journey is derailed.


They’re just plot twists in your superhero saga. Let’s navigate these moments with humour and resilience, turning ‘oops’ into opportunities.


• Embrace the Oops: Missed a habit? Laugh it off. Perfection is overrated, and laughter is the best medicine (and a great ab workout).


• The 2-Day Rule: Try not to skip your new habit two days in a row. One miss can be a fluke; two is the start of a new (unwanted) habit.


• Plan for Plan B: Have a backup plan for when life gets extra zany. Can’t do your 30-minute workout? How about 10 minutes of stretching or a quick walk?


• Reflect and Adjust: If a habit consistently slips, it might be too ambitious. Scale back and make it more doable. Remember, a small habit done consistently is better than a grand one done sporadically.


• Seek Support: Share your habit goals with a friend, partner, or fellow mom. A problem shared is a problem halved, and a habit shared is a habit strengthened.

In the beautifully messy journey of motherhood, ‘oops’ moments are part of the charm.

They’re not setbacks but stepping stones to a more adaptable, resilient you. So, next time you hit a habit hiccup, smile, shrug, and stride forward. You’ve got this, moms – one laugh, one step, one habit at a time! 🌈🤷‍♀️💪


Celebrating Tiny Triumphs: Because Every Mom Deserves a Trophy

Moms, it’s time to roll out the red carpet for yourselves because every tiny triumph in your day deserves a standing ovation. In the world of habit formation, it’s the little victories that lead to blockbuster results. Did you drink an extra glass of water today? That’s not just hydration; that’s a win! Managed to sneak in five minutes of meditation while hiding in the bathroom? That’s your trophy moment!


Celebrating these mini milestones is crucial because it’s these bits of progress that keep us motivated and on track. So, let’s start the parade for every small step you take!


• Cheer for the Chores: Turn mundane tasks into mini celebrations. Finished folding laundry? Do a little victory dance. Every completed task is a win.


• Journal Your Joys: Keep a small journal or note on your phone to jot down your daily wins. Reading them back is like giving yourself a round of applause.


• Reward Yourself: Set up small rewards for habit streaks. Ten days of drinking enough water? Time for that fancy coffee you love.


• Share Your Success: Tell someone about your small wins. Sometimes, just hearing, “Wow, that’s awesome!” can be the best reward.


• Visual Victory Board: Create a visual representation of your wins – a sticker chart, a progress graph, or a series of happy selfies. Seeing your success is believing it.

In the hustle and bustle of mom life, it’s easy to overlook the small stuff. But remember, every big achievement is just a series of small victories strung together.

So, let’s celebrate each one, no matter how tiny. You’re not just making habits; you’re making magic, one small triumph at a time. Here’s to you, the champions of the everyday! 🏆🎉.


Creating a Mom-Friendly Habitat

Welcome to the art of crafting a mom-friendly habitat, where your environment becomes your ally in the quest for habit success. Just as a gardener creates the perfect conditions for flowers to bloom, you can cultivate a space that nurtures your new habits. It’s about transforming your home into a place where habits can thrive amidst the laughter, laundry, and occasional Lego landmines.


Let’s make your space work for you, not against you, turning every corner into a cue for your new, empowering routines.


• Designate Habit Zones: Assign specific areas in your home for certain activities. A corner for meditation, a chair for reading, a spot on the kitchen counter for your water bottle – each space cues a specific habit.


• Make It Visible: Out of sight, out of mind? Not anymore! Keep the tools for your new habits in plain sight. Yoga mat rolled out, water bottle on the desk, journal by your bed.


• Simplify and Declutter: A cluttered space can lead to a cluttered mind. Simplify your surroundings to reduce distractions and make room for new habits.


• Involve the Family: Get the kids and partner on board. A shared habit chart, where everyone’s habits are tracked, can create a sense of team spirit and accountability.


• Create Rituals Around Habits: Make your new habits feel special. Light a candle when you meditate, play your favorite song when you’re about to exercise. Make it a ritual, not just a routine.

Your home is your haven, and with a few tweaks, it can also be the launchpad for your habit transformation.

By creating a mom-friendly habitat, you’re setting the stage for success, making each new habit feel like a natural part of your day. So, let’s turn your home into a habit haven, where every nook and cranny cheers you on towards your goals. Here’s to making your space as supportive and fabulous as you are! 🏡💖🌿.
