NeverThatBored Posted March 30, 2021 Report Share Posted March 30, 2021 My last challenge actually...went well? I set the very simple goal of walking daily and missed only a handful of days. After a bunch of false starts on coming back to the forums, I actually completed a challenge?? Walking was also a catalyst. Even though I didn't set any other goals, I found myself starting to do them anyway. I'd considered a mobility goal...I found myself stretching more often and feel less stiff. I'd considered a studying goal...I found myself restarting WaniKani to study Japanese kanji and feel like I'm starting to jog my memory and work my way back up to where I left off. So THIS time I'm going to very cautiously move up to a classic 3 goal challenge. I'm still trying to keep the goals small though! Goals: Study SOMETHING for 15 minutes every weekday. 15 minutes is short enough that I could literally do it right before bed, before work, right after work, or in the middle of the day and not have it get in the way of anything. As I go, I'll figure out what the best times of day are to do this work. Every time I get back from a walk, do a forward fold. Celebrate by singing "foooorward folds are great - come on!" to the tune of Celebrate until it becomes a habit. If I forget to do it right away, do it as soon as possible after I remember. One day a week, don't drink coffee. OR. One day a week, don't have any sweets. I can pick whichever one seems more achievable as I go. I do still want to keep doing my daily walks too but I don't feel the need to make it part of the challenge. 5 Quote Gargoyle Ranger | Level 49 2022 challenges: 49 (current) 2015-2021 challenges: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 |15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | 21 | 22 | 23 | 24 | 25 || 26 | 27 | 28 | 29 | 30 | 31 | 32 | 33 || 34 | 35 | 36 | 37 | 38 | 39 | 40 | 41 | 42 || 43 | 44 | 45 | | 46 | 47 | 48 || My epic quest | MEATBALL WARS You don't get better at anything unless you start doing it.
