I set a goal for myself to post one blog post per day for thirty days in a row. Well, Monday was day thirty. It has been fun, but I am now burned out and need to slow down. My partner and I had both has symptom flare-ups, so I think we were re-exposed to mold at a friend’s home. It’s “busy season” for my department and I feel like I’m drowning in nerdy projects. And I need to hustle to finish off 200 pages for my book club in the next week or so. Time is the rarest of resources, and I may need to reallocate mine slightly.
I have truly enjoyed the consistency, thought, so I may aim for a schedule of two or three posts per week, as I’ve enjoyed the consistency.
I think I’m going to revisit my old habit of these 30-day challenges. What will be next?
I’m thinking of committing to reading 50 pages of a book per day. I love reading and have fallen out of the habit over the last several years, and would love to pick it up again.
I’m also toying with the idea of following a fitness challenge–a daily set of planks, pushups, burpees, weightlifting, or a full routine. I am not sure my body is ready to be pushed that hard yet, through, and I don’t want to risk relapsing into severe illness territory.
What else? Give a compliment at least once per day. Don’t complain. Write in a journal. Brainstorm side projects that could generate income. We’ll see!
If you were to start a 30-day, what daily habit would you practice?
