This fall has been crazy. I made a few lifestyle changes. Changes like that are never easy.
It helps me to remember my favorite quote from The Daily Stoic, “YOU are the project”.
I wrote myself a poem of reminders.
Building on Healthy Habits
Spend more time reading and writing
Spend more time breathing and thinking
Spend more time hydrating and moving
Spend more time loving and laughing
Reading and writing always surprises me. It leads to discoveries and ideas. But, it takes time to be effective. And to be honest, my primary reason to read is for entertainment. So, reading competes with all other forms of entertainment.
Breathing and thinking needs it’s own time too. Some days, you move from appointment to appointment without space in between. Gotta take breaks in between to catch your breath.
Drink more water, take more walks. Thrive!
Do not underestimate the importance of play. Make time for it. If you don’t, are you alive?
