I've read that it takes about two weeks to start a new habit or break an old one.
So far I'm at day 18 without smoking. That's one old habit broken.
I'm at day 4 for taking the dogs to the park after work.
I'm at day 3 for getting up at 6:30-7:00 and going to the gym.
I'm eating breakfast (something I never made time for before or cared about).
I've been eating fairly healthy all month; lots of fish, vegetables, and juices.
It's a veritable lifestyle overhaul.
Once I feel these new habits are somewhat secure, I want to find a way to put art back into my life. I need to find a form of artistic expression that doesn't intimidate me.
