Lightsaber skills

 

Create a routine for staff containing the tricks I already know plus at least 2 new tricks to learn this challenge.

Routine should be around 20 mins including warm up.

(probably will be lots of video and bloopers this challenge)

 

Why it's a challenge: Honestly, picking up my staff and playing with it is not really a challenge. I truly love it.

However, the challenge lies more in the time management. I am THE WORST™ at time management.

I have to structure my morning better to accomodate a 20 minute session and still get everything ready

for work and get out the door with pants on and stuff.

Why I want to do it anyway: STAFF!!  And having more time to practice each day means faster progress.

 

Find Jedi Calm

 

Find two favorite meditations and do them every day, one in the morning and one at night. 

 

Why it's a challenge: See time management above. I don't have a solid grasp on how time works. I wake up 

with 10 minutes before I have to leave and I somehow think i'm gonna workout, meditate, cook breakfast, sit

and eat breakfast, bullet journal, reflect on the day, pack for work, pack for after-work activities, and get there on time???

Why I want to do it anyway: Its good for my brain and my old therapist said i should LOL. Plus, you know, I'm gonna 

be a jedi someday so. Gotta practice.

 

Get friggin' Flexy

 

Using GMB's focused flexibility and some specific stretches my coaches gave me for my sad pathetic shoulder mobility, create a routine and stretch EVERY SINGLE DAY.

STRETCH ALL THE DAYS.

 

Why it's a challenge: I'm so, so, so not flexy and I hate stretching and I don'tttt wannnaaa doooo ittttttt

Why I want to do it anyway: Big serious reason is injury prevention. The last two times I got wow-maybe-i-should-see-a-doctor hurt, 

it was because I pulled a muscle that would have been FINE if I wasn't a solid. And both times i went "that's it i'm streching every day now"

and didn't. Less serious and fun reason, back handsprings!!!

 

Re-create

 

Spend at least 1 hour per day, or 7 cumulative hours in a week, doing something with no purpose.

(ideas include, reading fiction, maybe drawing, playing video games (i haven't don this since i was a child) watching hockey without feel like i have to multitask.)

 

Why it's a challenge: I WANT TO DO ALL THE THINGS!!!! As evidenced most recently by this challenge. I feel like i've

"wasted my day" if i don't do something super productive every single minute. If I sit and continue to watch TV for

2 minutes after I've finished eating, I feel insta-guilty. Waste of 2 minutes. Could have been reading a textbook. 

Could have been doing a handstand. Could have been conjucating russian verbs. I jam-pack my days until i'm so over stressed that

I crash, and then when i'm crashing doing nothing, I'm hating myself because i'm wasting time being unable to move.

Why I want to do it anyway: If I get to be 75 and I speak all 12 of my target languages and i've mastered algebraic topology

and non-relativistic quantum mechanics and i've fixed all the plumbing issues in all my neighbors houses and fixed

everyone's laptop who asked and was all these things to all people, but I hated every minute of it?? NEver enjoyed my life? That's a fail.

 

I need to do something purely enjoyable. Be a kid again. Come home and play for a bit before doing productive things.

As a GMB fangirl, I vote for the Focused Flexibility. It will help with the other goals. And for the staff training, I think a routine would be cool.

FIGURING IT OUT! Stretching is good and definitely has carryover to a lot of things. BACK HANDSPRIIIING PROGRESSIONS DEFINITELY, THOUGH. And then, that puts you at 4 goals. :D

Stretching it is! Focused flexibility will now be one of three goals. And yes, I was leaning towards a routine :) I'll start brainstorming some moves.

 

As for back handsprings....I am wondering if maybe I should spend this challenge working on my shoulder mobility and then working on my back handspring in 4 weeks? Because I just tried this and YOOOOO my shoulder mobility is crap on toast.

Kind of craptastic- I havn't been to gymnastics class in about six months and even then it was the #1 thing my coaches wanted me to work on....and I wasn't as diligent about it as I should have been even then, but since I haven't been to class I've done like maybe one bridge since then.

Heyyyy you know what, when you search for staff training plans you find a lot of HR stuff. I may hit you up for advice next challenge if I decide to try it. :)

I'll be happy to offer any i may have lol (I literally started staff last challenge, so, i'm a noob...) but also what...

What is HR?

I have been racking my brain but all i'm coming up with is home room, heart rate, human resources, and hard rolls and none of those seem related to staff so I'm...lost lol

Human Resources, as in "staff training" = "training the people who work for you"
