Mahalak's Going Back to the Basics


Mahalak

Recommended Posts

Grateful for a new job, but its rhythms, compounded by COVID, means my routine is...not so routine right now! So I want to screw down on some things I've been doing well, but that have gotten a little loose over the past two+ weeks (can't blame it all on the new job 🙄).

30 activity minutes daily

8 glasses of water daily

Daily Prayer

Reading professionally and for leisure

Big 3 and 3 Gratitudes

Nice challenge! I feel like routine makes all the difference - seems like you have a solid plan!

 

Also that gif is strangely mesmerizing... 👀

Isn't it though?!

I hadn't thought about how tied to routine I am - or that perhaps I benefit from. Slowly making progress...

Hey hey Mahalak! I saw that you're working on a routine, I can understand how difficult that can be, but just remember to cut yourself some slack as you're experimenting with what works and doesn't!

 

I hope your week is going good!

How's your week going to far? Able to settle into your routine again?

Thanks for checking in - and sorry I'm so terrible at checking the NF chat rooms. Yes, things in most ways are going swimmingly! Now that I'm reminded that this challenge ends in a few days, I'm going to have to up my challenges rather than stay stationary

here for making routines routine again. 

Amen! May it be so!

 

Red1263, thank you for the reminder; I need it as it is easy for me to be hard on myself. So many things I think would be great to do (like tracking my challenges daily, or checking in/reporting more), but my lack of doing so makes me wonder how important those things really are for me. It's an experiment, and there is value in those things, but there is only so much time and energy.

We all like to see updates regularly, but isn't the important part that things are going swimmingly for you?  Happy to hear real life is going well, since that's the important part :)
