Confessions: Quirky Habits We’re Keeping in 2024 (Without the Guilt Trip)

Table of Contents

New year, new me? Not so fast! At Complete Mind Care, we believe in celebrating the real you, imperfections and all. As we step further into 2024, we want to celebrate the unique habits and practices that have helped us navigate the complexities of modern life. These aren’t just habits; they’re our personal touches in the tapestry of mental wellness

Let’s raise a toast (figuratively, please, before that morning coffee!) to the quirks that make your mental health journey, well, yours.

Confession #1: My Desk is a Jackson Pollock of Post-It Notes and Coffee Rings:

Newsflash: Organized Marie Kondo might faint at the sight of your workspace, but that’s okay, we’re working through it, we’ll get there! Chaos can be comforting. Those stray sticky notes are mini-victories, the coffee rings a testament to fueled nights of inspiration. Own your space, however messy it may be. It’s a reflection of your vibrant mind, not a measure of your worth.

Micro-Step Mission: Dedicate 5 minutes each morning to a mini-declutter. Toss one irrelevant note, organize a single pen cup, or simply admire the coffee ring masterpiece. Progress, not perfection, is the game!

Confession #2: My Fitness Routine is as Flexible as a Yoga Pose (Maybe More Like a Couch Slouch):

Forget the gym-bunny pressure. Listen to your body. Maybe a brisk walk around the block is your jam, or perhaps some gentle stretches in your pajamas are all you need. Celebrate the movement that feels good, not the one fueled by Instagram envy.

Micro-Step Mission: Choose one small movement to incorporate into your day. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, do some air squats while brushing your teeth, or dance it out to your favorite song. Every step counts (even the “couch potato” shuffles)!

Confession #3: My Inner Bookworm Has a Shelf Full of Unfinished Symphonies:

Half-read novels with dog-eared pages? Embrace them! Sometimes, the joy is in the journey, not the destination. Those abandoned stories are testaments to your curiosity, whispering tales of uncharted worlds explored. So, don’t feel guilty about leaving a book behind; celebrate the chapters that captivated you.

Micro-Step Mission: Pick up a neglected book and reread your favorite chapter. Savor the words, reminisce about the journey, and remember: reading is a marathon, not a sprint. Pace yourself and enjoy the ride!


Quirks aren’t flaws; they’re the brushstrokes that paint your unique mental health masterpiece. This year, let’s ditch the guilt, embrace our idiosyncrasies, and celebrate progress, not perfection. Take it one micro-step at a time, and remember, there’s beauty in the messy, the imperfect, and the uniquely “you”.
