I stopped actively tracking alcohol consumption, but I have definitely been drinking a lot less. The primary driver here has been a firm no on alcohol during the week. I’ve also managed to do more social events that are not alcohol dependent (e.g. I’ll often have dinner with friends but no alcohol).
I did not focus on meditation as a habit this year. I have found that the Apple Watch has been an interesting tool for mindfulness. The reminders on the Breathe application have given me nudges during the workday to take a breather that I have found more helpful than I would have imagined.
I continued with a decent reading habit. I read 14 books this year (down from 19 last year) which I’m quite happy with considering I’m back in full-time work following my career change. I’ve found it helpful to use Cedric’s 3-book tip – reading 3 books of varying difficulty. I generally read non-fiction, but having a lighter book to pick up is useful on more tired days.
