Jarric becomes Mr Positivity


Jarric

Recommended Posts

Hello and welcome all to my last challenge of the year! Things have been a bit mad the last couple of months, and my mood has been a bit all over the place with a big dollop of worry on top. And I don't want to be worried, or angry, or upset, I want to be positive and looking forward. With that in mind, this month I try to become Mr Positivity.

 

Mr Positivity - 15XP

What? Say and record positive things, to help me keep a positive mindset.

Why? Because I want to be a more positive person.

How? Record something positive in my journal every day, and report it on here. It can be anything; something about myself, something good about my day, something I'm thankful for etc.

 

 

Mr Strong - 15XP

What? Continue getting in the gym.

Why? Because it makes me feel good about myself, and because I want to get stronger.

How? Get to the gym 3 x per week, continuing starting strength. No Excuses despite Christmas and all that jazz. This takes precedence over all other exercise.

 

 

Mr Sleepy - 15XP

What? Get some more sleep!

Why? Because I need it, for body and mind, or I feel dreadful.

How? Get to bed each night by 10:30, or within 45 minutes of getting home, whichever the latter

 

 

Mr Writer - 10XP

What? Keep up with my Bullet Journal

Why? Because I'm liking it as a way to keep track of challenges, and I'm hoping that as I get used to it it will actually make me more productive.

How? i. Journal every day. ii. Report on here if I fail to complete any to-dos. iii. Complete all month to-dos at some point.

 

Also, this just popped into my head:

 

 

So that's that, nothing too fancy this month but hopefully a winning set of goals. Onward!

Like the idea of introducing positivity into your life. I have struggled with a lifetime of depression and have struggled to get to that positive mindset too. 

 

And don't think of being positive like Sadness in Inside Out!

Keep it up! Positive thinking can be difficult, but it's an awesome goal. Writing out thoughts can be an awesome way to steer your thinking in the right direction. I like your approach to this challenge.

Who could forget Mr Motivator! (OK so I mainly remember him because he was on before Power Rangers). I have no idea what I would do for that goal, but if you can think of something I will totally add a Mr Motivator challenge :P

If you like Pixar animated films, definitely! It's my favorite Pixar film now! I love animated movies though. Depends on your likes. I actually cosplayed as Sadness at a convention a couple of times. :)

In that case I shall definitely check it out! I keep seeing gifs of it so it's probably about time I got some context anyway :)
