Back with the adventurers! I've been with the druids for the last challenges while I worked on a mindset shift that has changed many things about how I live my life. The process is still going on, but now that I've grasped the main points, I'm back to focus on movement. There is still a mindset shift goal, but movement retakes its place of honor. Goal 1: Move all day long Workouts are great, but sitting in a chair for hours and hours is not. So while I'll keep my regular exercise routines, I'll try to spend less and less time sitting and move in short spans along the day. If I'm going to be sitting for a long while, set the timer and stand up every half hour. Use mini-movements during these breaks: Feldenkrais, stretching, trigger points, going upstairs and downstairs, going to drink some water, 5 minutes of decluttering, going on a short errand... “Big” movement at least 5 times a week: self-defense, IS workout, walks. Goal 2: Outdoors Spring is here for sure. So time to get out of the house, as much as possible. Go out there and D-vitaminize yourself! Reading and desk work to be done in the patio. Workouts too if it is not too hot. Go outside everyday (going to work doesn't count). Discover at least 2 new places during the challenge. Goal 3: Mindset shift Meditation. Maintain those 15 minutes 5-7 times a week. Try to reach 20 minutes. Apply describing instead of judging. Allow space for feelings and sensations to be felt. Do not fight them or deny them. Anxiety is included here: anxiety is a part of myself and a part of life, so learn from it instead of fighting, ignoring or feeding it. That's it. No miniquests, side quests, life quests... Just moving, going out and being aware.
