  1. Hello friends! As I start typing here, Tango Argentine is blasting through my speakers, making me move my feet and putting a smile on my face... Astor Piazolla is just the beginning of my quest for a joyful life amidst a killer virus trying to get me before I can be vaccinated. Apocalypse life is hard, so I dedicate this challenge to joy, ease and fun. My history of challenges here is pretty mixed. after kicking some serious ass after my spinal surgery (getting my broken behind back to CrossFit) last fall I kinda struggled. Every time I felt good another body part broke..
  2. ¸„.-•~¹°”ˆ˜¨ Health & Happiness Are Hard ¨˜ˆ”°¹~•-.„¸ Wherein the Cracked_Belle Un-Dies 𝔽𝕚𝕣𝕤𝕥 𝕒 𝕎𝕒𝕣𝕟𝕚𝕟𝕘, 𝕐'𝕒𝕝𝕝 I am diagnosed with a lot crap that makes life hard — manic depression, C-PTSD, OSFED (eating disorder), OCD, anxiety, some chronic pain, and other crap. these aspects of me and my life are going to come up in my journey to getting back on track with my health and happiness. I'll try to be sensitive to triggers, include warnings such as this where needed, and use spoilers when necessary. but this is my "cover my butt" warni
  3. Tzippi Tastes the Vinegar If you've read the Tao of Pooh (and if you haven't, consider it!), you might remember the allegorical image referenced at the beginning of the Vinegar Tasters, in which three men taste from the same vat of vinegar, one tasting sourness, one bitterness, and one sweetness. These three are representations of the three major religions/philosophies of China, Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism. The vinegar is life, and the men each taste it differently. Tai Chi, which I have begun studying and is a hugely positive practice in my life, is largely based on Taoist
  4. I don't think I have ever been this excited to start a new year or a new challenge! 2017 was difficult and January was useful to take stock of where I am and what I want to do with my life. The answer is: do more of the things which make me happy, judge less, and be healthy. (Also, swear less.) I will try to maintain this momentum throughout 2018, so I am here setting up the basis for all the 2018 challenges to come! The quests themselves will change, but these 3 goals will largely remain the same (unless I reach one of them mid-year, then I will change!). It took a long time for me to id
  5. AERI AND THE PATH OF LIFE This challenge is focused on gradually setting down a habit for some of the basic elements of a balanced life. These are mostly day-start activities. DAILY: Maintenance: 5 min ; wakeup alarm @8:55 - (5 * cd) Meditate: 5 min + cd Activate: 5 min warmup + 5 min cooldown ; gym 3/week Declutter: 5 min + cd Inventory: self aware, take note of actions and week's chosen behavior. (cd = challengeday) WEEKLY: Buy groceries Budget plan Simplify mission path Choose week's behavior to work on.
  6. Lucky fire dragon counts the good things Starting a log here for reflection and a place to keep going in between challenges or anytime really as I struggled with my challenges this last year (2016) and want to play a bit around for a while. Currently I am looking to re-establish strong workout and healthy eating habits keep up the good work attitude, being pro-active and less procrastinating keep up meditation habits remind myself often to take pressure and judgement off myself in order to appreciate the good there already is and in order t
  7. GREETINGS REBELLION!!I am Wraiven but those whom know me well call me Mitch Jnr. I have been working on leveling up my life and developed my quest log in a way to grow, not only for me but for the benefit of those all over the world. Since I can remember I have always been a very giving person and gathered joy from tasks that not only helped me be a better man, but also to help others grow too. Since my Father (Mitch Snr) passed away started really struggling with depression and anxiety in recent years and it's truly effected my growth and attitude towards what I always believed of myself. It
  8. Hello fellow Assassins (and other visitors!) ! My name is Asuka and I fell off the wagon a few months ago. I was unhappy at work, unhappy in life and eating cake to make it all get better. Did it work? Of course not! So I am now changing the way I work (and very soon changing jobs!), and ditching the cake to focus on making MYSELF (and not other people) happy. We all have things that make us happy when we do them and things that make us happy once they are done. So the goal of this challenge is to do enough of the first ones to "store" happiness to do the second
  9. Welcome to SPRING! As we stretch out of the darker season, let’s join together in gratitude. Science has shown that being actively grateful can have tremendous positive effects on our health and well being, and the more we study gratitude, the more benefits we find. The basic takeaway is very simple: Be thankful to be happy. “People who regularly practice gratitude by taking time to notice and reflect upon the things they're thankful for experience more positive emotions, feel more alive, sleep better, express more compassion and kindness, and even have stronger immune sy
  10. A little mini win. I went and looked at my profile on Facebook and noticed. I seem like a pretty happy guy. I know I get wrapped up in my head at times, but I think that I am a happy (and very lucky) guy. For those who don't know, I used to fight depression seriously. I was hanging on by a thread. I was probably a few months from suicide. Uniquely, that's what saved me. One day, I wanted to see if I had the capability to do it. My method was to drive off the road into a tree. I didn't care about pain, but I didn't want my family to know about my struggle, so I wanted it to end in an acci
  11. 2016 is over, and a lot has happened in my life. I have been away from NF for a while now, and I've never posted in the Druid forum before, so I don't think anyone here will know me. Anyway, Over the last year: I started working at a job I thought would be my dream job and ended up pretty terrible. I broke off a 6 year relationship with the guy I thought I wanted to marry because the only feeling I felt with him was resentment. All of of my friends have vanished from my life without a word. I was diagnosed with Major Depressive and Panic Disorders. I los
  12. Because life this year felt like: (Yes. A friend and I have a thing where we describe life situations with poorly drawn dinosaurs.) Anyway. With all the over-scheduling and things constantly happening and lack of sleep and non-stop caffeinating and gym and dance and work and deadlines and... It feels lie I have no control over my own life, and then OH HI DEPRESSION*, MY OLD FRIEND I've been basically feeling like shit for the last few weeks. The last time this happened, there were some major (and scary) life changes that I needed to
  13. Tuesday, May 10 - June 7 (Had taken me awhile to get here, but I am HERE, and going to enjoy the last month of the school kids in school!) Heyo, back for another month! Here to roll for the fifth month of making a thread, and hoping to be active for my goals. The month of Quotes! Bringing in the Good Vibes! Good quotes of reminders, and pretty pictures. I actually had fun finding all these pics! (Usually I get tired or angry by the end). These last five months! Wow! Can't imagine a life without Nerdfitness, with all the positive vibes ping ponging all over the
  14. Now with 1000 Elephants!!! err....cuts with the sword.... Read your Pratchett. Following hot on the heels of the last challenge.... is the last challenge. I'm keeping the same primary goals, to whit: It does you good to get out in the fresh air... "We have swept well. Let's go to the gardens, for is it not written, 'It does you good to get out in the fresh air'?" First assignment - get outside. I have a yard to putter in and clean up during spring, an old, old maple I need to get some more mulch under (probably another 4 yards, if I actually want to get to the drip line), a p
  15. Welcome everyone, and Happy New Year! I do gymnastics, weightlifting and bodyweight skills of various styles (video: summer training sampler) and sleep far too late. I'm also a software engineer, mental calculation competitor and amateur composer. I've decided that 2016 is going to be epic, so I need to get started making that a reality. Goal #1: rest properly: the biggest thing that stops me from doing more fun stuff is not getting enough sleep. Therefore this challenge I'll have a simple but strict goal of having my laptop off before 0100 every day. This means I'll get about 8 hours
  16. ♩Cause.....we're.... ANIMANIACS ♩♬ ♬ And we're zany to the max ♬ :D :D and one of my favorite Animaniac's songs: Hello all! 2016 is our year . I'm starting this year with a nostalgic favorite cartoon (because....cartoons ). I'll be returning to the combo system but with simplified categories! AND (DUN DUN DUN) I'm also adding a weekly PvP element (villain face off) each week based on who signs up (props to Lady Shello for this awesome format tweak!). The combo system means I do at least one thing from each list per day, and I get extra poi
  17. 2016 Road Map These are my big goals for the next year, there is a lot I want to accomplish so I reserve the right to alter them as life happens Mental Health Live In the Moment- take things second by second day by day maintain good habits Meditation at least 5x per week, preferably daily Inspiration Gratitude Positive Self Talk falling in love with myself Physical Health Exercise Pilates 2x per week Lifting 2-3x per week walking- as active rest yoga? Eat your Freggies Sleep Water Creative Health: Writing write another book this year (Camp NaNo) finish second draft o
  18. Hi! I want to wake up and feel positive, to be happy about the new day. I want to think about all the potential the day has and what great things could happen today. Or maybe what things I can archieve. BUT I am waking up and feel the opposite. I dont want to get up so early, I dont want to know that I will, one hour after waking up, spend the next 10 hours (in the worst case) in school, just to come home to do school work. I dont want to get reminded about problems. And it is not getting better when I am opening the window to see a cold and rainy weather and I know it is dark when I leave an
  19. Journal of a Beginning Sailor Senshi It takes a long time and many challenges for a regular girl to realise that she has the power take her destiny into her own hands and make of her life whatever she wants it to be. To understand that with regular practice, dedication and faith, she can be strong some day, strong enough to defeat powerful enemies.
  20. Hello Druids! This is my second challenge but my first as part of a guild. This is part two of my journey learning how to take care of myself and well... care about myself. I guess it's a journey in learning self compassion. I learned in my last challenge that happiness is built from the inside out so I'm focused on re-inforcing my interior scaffolding. I’m hesitating on grading some these because self care should be its own reward. I won’t put a time limit or value judgement on most of these. What matters is my consistent and persistent effort. Some of parts of the quests are maintenan
  21. Main Quest: To be happy, feel happy, and enjoy my life. I want to be happier in 6 weeks than I am now. Diet and Fitness Goal 1: "I'm a grown ass woman, I do what I want" Work out 3x a week. This has no schedule, no specific routine. Just do what I feel like doing. What qualifies as a "workout?" I have to put on fitness clothes and do an activity specifically for my body (i.e. not walking to the store to buy food). This could be yoga, could be bodyweight stuff, etc. Diet and Fitness Goal 2: Eat what you want This is probably an un-challenge, but I'm not going to track. Not going to count. N
  22. Yes, it's my second full challenge and I'm already having a rest, after going way off target with my first challenge! SO LAZY, YES?? That's right, I have no discipline to give to health, fitness and diet. No discipline, no willpower, no motivation, no inspiration, no knuckle down and do the work-ness, no just do it-ness, none of it. But wait! All is not lost! This challenge, I am making my overarching goal to ENJOY BEING ALIVE (since I don't do that very often). And I'm making it food and fitness related! (That's right, I said FOOD related!). As your intuitive-eater-in-residence, I declare
  23. Goal 1: exercise for an hour a week. This is extremely doable. I already do this sort of. 6 weeks...at least hours. I must do this Goal 2: Complete at least one codeacademy course a week. That's only 6 courses. It's python! Again doable as f*ck. Long termish Goal: Earn 10% more revenue. I'm reading and working hard to develop passive revenue. Making more money will allow me to keep doing the job that I love (that pays very little). I just need to keep moving forward and not get beat down by setbacks.
  24. I have decided to join this challenge, but with some modifications compared to the previous ones: - No goals - Less updates and less followings (fun, but too time consuming) - KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) - No points OK, now to the challenge! This time I will just focus on what makes me happy. Just being and accepting. And what does this mean? I am happy when I eat healthy foods, when I move my body, when I relax and when I feel no pressure to achieve stuff. I will not have goals, but I will still I aim for certain things. For instance, I want to eat healthy, and I
  25. After hitting a slump during my sixth challenge I decided to "quit" on that one and take some time to focus on other things in my life. I was starting a new job (which is going well), and dealing with some other things. Most of that is sorted out now, I kicked a bout of depression I was having and overall am feeling positive in coming back here. I decided it was also time to get back to basics, refocus on my original goals coming to NF, and start fresh. I was pushing myself a bit too hard to branch out in my last two challenges and they suffered as a result. So without further ado... History
