So I shared with you guys you fear of accountability, and as predicted, my daily calligraphy challenge has kinda withered sadly, like grocery store flowers in old water.
There’s this chart.
It’s something that I’ve added to my planner and while if course the intention was to have crossed off marks in every category, every day, the revised approach is simply to watch.
Watch what I have an easy time doing, and what I can’t seem to do as regularly.
And it’s actually made things a bit easier for my self-imposed torture of negative self-talk . And I plan to add this page for every month and adjust the habits according to whatever I want to work on. Inevitable the balance always tips in one direction!
What’s been easiest: calligraphy at the beginning of the month, And as of This week, it’s been early waking.
What’s been hardest: mindful eating by far. Also, a hard hard IG addiction.
What’s next: figuring out how to not totally resent my role of ‘happiness, cleanliness and pancake + laundry’ provider in for the small inhabitants of my house.
I’m taking any advice!
Revision: so I’ve realized that my keystone habits to ensure that I have higher chance of getting the other things done are the following:
1-sleep: getting to bed by 9h30
2-laying my workout clothes out the night before: means that I don’t find any extra excuses and I can just fly on auto-pilot in the morning
3-no alcohol: this is a tough one, but I find that alcohol, although I’m pretty moderate in my consumption already, acts as a hinderer of the above-mentioned practices. It throws off my sleep big time and my eating becomes mindless instead of mindful. And then nothing good can really come of that. So yeah, if I do indulge on a friday night, aka beers and nachos, I can allow it, but with an awareness of its impact.
Also I’m 98 years old.
