I confess, I have a secret online jigsaw addiction. And if I want to achieve my outcomes for 2020, it’s going to have to end today.
I frequently have little obsessions and once I realise quite how much of my life is taken up with it, I’m very good at stopping it. Thank gawd.
My challenge THEN, is to not replace playing jigsaws with watching pimple popping videos, OR ANYTHING ELSE that does not move me nearer to where I want to be.
Stop Procrastinating Sarah
I’m terrible for it. I think of everything I have / need / want to do and then my mind lures me into something soothing. But it’s not soothing is it? It just stresses me out more as I’m still in the place I was and worrying instead of taking one small action.
My sister Nicola is great at getting on with things. In fact, not just her, I ironically surround myself with great friends who are fab at just doing it! Whatever the current flavour of ‘it’ is. Obviously I’m hoping that watching them will inspire or maybe shame me into action.
How To Help Myself
I’m going to restart daily habits that worked well for me in the past
- journaling with a pen and lovely notebook (I love a lovely notebook)
- get outside every day
I’ve also signed up this morning (at 4am! I have no idea why I woke up) for Mel Robbins free program called Best Decade Ever. This is her post on Instagram that inspired me to do so, I hope it helps you too x

Feel like you accomplished nothing in 2019? Keep reading. I recently got a question from a guy named Sean who felt exactly the same way. He didn’t keep a single resolution and made no progress on his goals. He said he felt like a loser. First of all, you are NOT a loser if you didn’t make progress this year. Not even a bit. So get those thoughts out of your head right now. 92% of people fail at their New Year’s resolutions! There’s a simple reason why, and I explain it in this video. And if you want to actually keep your resolutions not only in 2020, but over the next decade, make sure you get yourself signed up for #BestDecadeEver. Just go to MelRobbins.com/BestDecade.
