The Daily Muse recently emphasized the importance of changing our habits in an effort to meet our resolutions.
The idea is to take a single action and consciously fit it into your schedule until it becomes second nature, like brushing your teeth… By adopting these specific habits, you’re building a foundation that will set you up for success not just in 2014, but for the rest of your life.

I don’t know about you, but I can completely relate to Alex’s experiences with resolutions. Resolutions are often difficult to maintain when I tackle them all at once. As my dear friendEvan Thrailkill has taught me: small steps lead to big changes.
My hope is to stick to the following habit-changing tips in 2014:
Start a new hobby: my blog.
Make a weekly blog post
Read 1 article about blogging a day
Engage with other blogs/bloggers for 10 minutes a day
Get healthy & stay healthy.
Track daily workouts/activities
Keep track of a food journal
Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day
Get organized & stay organized.
Keep track of daily to-do list
Take 15 minutes to clean before going to bed each day
Spend 1 hour a week decluttering a specific space
Do not use cellphone/laptop in bed
Establish routine sleep schedule
No late-night snacks
The objective is to align your lifestyle to your new goals. What habits do you need to create in order to reach your goals/resolutions? What other approaches do you use to ensure you keep up with your resolutions on a daily basis?
