Mike Wazowski Posted July 27, 2020 Report Share Posted July 27, 2020 What's up y'all! Last challenge ended with me being quite sick (thankfully not COVID) but despite that, I was really happy with the number of habits I was able to ingrain into my life. Goal for this challenge will be to keep those things going and add just a little bit to this habit boulder's momentum. GOALS: Nutrition: eat only when hungry and eat 3-4 meals per day w/o snacks in between. I'm slowly working through Georgie Fear's book "Lean Habits" (ignoring BS when I smell it) and these are the first two up to get things on track in a way that feels sustainable for the long term. Daily mobility work (at least 5 minutes). Self explanatory, gotta keep taking care of my body, especially with the abuse it takes from dance and sitting a bunch for work. No screens in the evening. Once I start my automated lights fade out, all the screens go off for the night (exceptions: e-reader that's only used to read and playing podcasts from my phone). Read 1+ Page every day. Obviously, I expect I'll read more most days, but this is a little trick to get myself started. 5+ minutes of solo practice every day. Similar trick as the reading - my goal is to get back into the habit of working on things solo at home that'll help my dancing (like I tell my students to do all the time). Meditate/pray and get outside every day. These are the most important parts of my morning routine for keeping my mental health chugging along nicely, calling them out explicitly Of these, only #5 and half of #1 are totally new, so it feels realistic to achieve these over the coming month (if I hit two weeks of perfect with nutrition, I will add another sub-goal to it). I'm about to take a weeklong break from social media (incl. NF) so I'll catch y'all next Monday! 6 Quote Ballroom dancer, data nerd, calisthenics dabbler Link to comment
