Actually... people have been testing that hypothesis. As long as necessary seems to be a common conclusion.
Oh! Thank you for providing me with a summary of the data! Considering my love life is so bad I can't even find the romance novels I want at the bookstore, as long as necessary/possibly indefinitely is reassuring.
This has been so important. I have figured out I don't know what to do yet, but I do know I don't want it to take forever or to be all consuming.
I also know that I need more naps before I make decisions
Okay so starting this week off mostly strong!
Monday did not do too much; I have been practicing buckets and buckets, and have to limit myself to 3 hours a day because my wrist and elbow are starting to act up. However, if I take some time now to change my technique, I have enough repertoire that I feel like I could practice more than that.
Healthy eating and hydrating have been steady, and I've picked up on and off meditating again. I found that doing some body scans takes about five minutes, so that's a good focused meditation I can start banking on again.
Sleep has been steady, and now that I am feeling better I am easing myself back into exercise. I was afraid I would have lost my gains taking the week and a half off, but I think I can mostly pick up where I stopped.
I can always do better on my sword progress, my swapping out of desserts, and my yoga. I keep wanting to make things a more regular practice, but there are usually time sensitive tasks that need to get done at night for the next day that end up taking priority. I am hoping this dies down soon; if not, I will make some adjustments.
Steadily knocking off tasks to be done. I have one more that has to be done in person at school, and the rest I can accomplish at home away from school.
Personal log: Did some cleansing cleaning out of closet and of paperwork on monday, which was why I didn't make it to the gym. I spent the whole day debulking my closet. It was therapeutic. The physical act of letting go of clothes from other times in my life was good for mentally letting go of baggage. I am in a much healthier place.
Going to buy myself some books to be shipped home for the end of holy week. This has been a doozy to get through, and I'm looking forward to taking some real time off, where I can focus only on the things I want.
