Food, Sleep, Phone

Last week’s goals:

1. Keep it up: A
Go outside , work with Lulu, eat healing foods, and keep the house tidy every day ✔️

2. Yoga: A+
Today was my 16th day in a row! I mainly stuck with the 20 minute practice this week, but over the weekend I switched to a 40 minute video. I’m feelin’ great.

3. Curb appeal: A-
I struck a few points off for late work, but we got it done today. We’re no topiary sculptors, but at least we can see outside our windows now!

This week’s goals:

1. Keep it up 
Go outside, work with Lulu, eat healing foods, keep the house tidy, and yoga every day.

2. Use up freezer contents 
Our freezer is packed so full that we can barely open it without something tumbling out.

3. Get my sleep pattern back under control 
I’ve been struggling to get to sleep at night, but when I sleep-in the next morning “to make up for the sleep I lost” all I’m really doing is keeping up that vicious cycle. I’ve got to start waking up before 10 and reimplementing my evening routine.

4. Stare at my phone less
Unlike some, I don’t think there’s anything inherently wrong with being on your phone a lot – it’s a great way to connect with friends, get work done on the go, and learn about the world beyond your immediate surroundings – but, just like anything, it can become a distraction and/or a source of unhappiness. I’ve known for a while that I’m not as content when I waste all my time mindlessly scrolling.

I turned off all the notifications on my phone a couple of weeks ago (after watching Jordan’s video Why I’ve Avoided My Phone for 2 Days and Counting), but I haven’t taken the plunge of actually, intentionally spending less time on my phone. This week, I want to put my phone down whenever I notice that I’m just zoning out on it. I anticipate that this is going to be difficult – I’m definitely addicted.

  1. That’s good that you are trying to spend less time on the phone. I saw Jordan’s video when he posted it and liked it. I am on the computer more than I am on my phone so I actually go through a “Sabbath” day where I don’t touch the computer for a whole day once a week. It helps me pay better attention to other things. I had the computer off for two days this past week which surprised me. I’ve never really been a phone person as it is, but computers were always a struggle area of my time’s focus. How has it been going for your phone “fast?” I hope it has helped you out.

    You’ve been doing great lately with your goal reaching! Nice!
