    I want to fully enjoy my retired life and learn a new skill at the same time. I think I need to have the identity of someone who takes singing seriously enough to want to improve while laid back enough to simply enjoy the activity regardless of how fast or slow I learn. Practising every day should help me develop that identity.

    The smallest way I can start my habit is to sing for 30 minutes a day. I’ll practice every afternoon after lunch from 1 PM. I’ll increase the intensity for a minute every day. If my practice sessions become 1 hour long, the next hour or part of it will be on the next set because I don’t want to damage my voice. I’ll stop increasing my intensity once I have 3 sets of 1 hour each.

    Good job on thinking things through! As you proceed with the habit challenge, you will learn how to start other habits so that you can keep doing your current habits and affect many parts of your life. Keep up the good work. D

    I made my habit easier to do by having my children teach me how to use a smartphone. They downloaded a few apps that are meant to help me learn how to sing well. I’ve also downloaded a few karaoke versions of songs I want to practice. I usually practice in the living room because it’s the most comfortable place that doesn’t tempt me to just go to sleep.

    I usually use the end of a morning or afternoon meal as a trigger to start singing practice. For now, I’ve tested using the end of lunch as a trigger and it works so far.

    I have other habits such as preparing lunch and dinner, shopping during the weekends for groceries. Taking care of my grandkids also allowed me to develop habits especially since they are still very young.

    Also, I already have a calendar that I mark to keep track of things.

    Hey there, Elaine! You can also use a Karaoke Player and connect it to your TV so that you can practice conveniently and have a lot of fun. 😀

    I didn’t exactly plan to get much accountability as I am only starting this habit simply for recreation. That being said, my grandkids want to join in on the fun, so they’ve actually been asking me if and when I’ll start singing and if they can join in. Of course, I let them join up! I’ve also told my friends about it and every weekend we meet up and they want to know how far I’ve gone.

    I’m not going to go as far as to put money on the line for my habit, but it’s good to know that my habit is making the people around me happy.
