{Blogtober} Life Saving

The past few years I set myself a goal to read one Self Help book per month (I am not fussy on the books being ONLY categorised as "Self Help" they can be anything from writing inspirations to books about anxiety and happiness, mindful quotes or others like Big Magic etc)

My only issue is finding the time and the attention span to soak in the words. I either throw myself in for an hour of intense reading - highlighting passages, adding post it notes to pages or writing in the margins... OR I am the complete opposite where I read the same paragraph three times and promptly forget what I read.

Last year someone recommended the Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod. I was intrigued by the concept as my current perfect morning involves coffee and couch and reading (or surfing the internets!) and I wondered if it was possible to change my outlook. Until I read the whole point of this was to get out of bed earlier.

Spoiler Alert - I tried getting up earlier, it really isn't for me.

So why am I writing about this book now?

LIFE Savers.
There is a full chapter dedicated to 6 tasks that Hal does when he arises from bed, every single morning. He spends 10 mins (from memory) on each and if you do a quick google search, you will find a plethora of PDF's / blog posts about his method.

After trialling his concept last year (minus the getting out of bed early) I promptly fell off the bandwagon due to LIFE getting in the way. This year though, I have been re-considering a visit down that path, this time switching it up to be doing something that is more me. And spacing it out over the morning (not all in one go before the sun rises!)

I brainstormed SAVERS last week and have come up with ways that will work best for ME. I am aiming for 10mins per activity each day, preferably mornings just not before the sun comes up! 

My goal is by the end of October to be actively smashing each of these tasks and doing them BEFORE I get sucked into the vortex of the MFS (Mindless Facebook Scrolling) each day.
