Day 29- LEVEL UP: Shower Gel

NEW HABIT: Order more Liz Earle shower gel when last bottle opened

This is day 23 on my path to perfection and today I will level-up for the second time. Level-up is what call a habit when it is improved. So, a couple of weeks back, I introduced the habit of having a shower in the morning on work days. At the time, I had some left over shower gels from hotel visits, and I vowed to use them up before purchasing my preferred brand. This saves money and is kinder to the environment. This morning, I used the last drop of my hotel shower gel and tomorrow I will start using my preferred choice. My favourite shower gel is Orange Flower Botanical Body Wash from Liz Earle. I love to shower in citruses, as I find them really energising and mood enhancing. As I travel on my path to perfection, my ultimate destination is to be very ethical, very environmentally friendly and eat a plant-based diet. These kind of standards are very hard to achieve overnight, which is why people think perfection isn’t possible. I believe perfection is possible, if you take baby steps or stepping stones. Moving my cosmetics to Liz Earle is my stepping stone. The brand is not as saintly as it sells itself, but it is a step in the right direction. The products are something I will enjoy, as I introduce the habits that require them. Once the habits are very well established, stepping towards extreme ethical products and habits will be much easier.

The cheapest I can get the body wash on the website is £13.50, if I buy three. The bottle I’m about to crack open was £10.95 from eBay, so a saving there. Because procrastinators, like me, persistently run out of things (which compromises our routine) I will be buying my next bottle the moment I open the last bottle. That’s called a ‘trigger’ and a lot of my newly created habits rely on triggers. I’m gonna enjoy tomorrow’s shower!
