I blog in the mornings right after I meditate. It's a great way to kind of set my intentions for the day. Yesterday, after blogging, I went and did some reading. That was nice. I haven't done that in a long, long time. I used to have the habit of reading every morning before work and when I came home from work. But life got in the way and I lost those habits. During school I won't be able to read in the mornings, but I'm going to take advantage of it when I can. After blogging yesterday, I took a couple of minutes and wrote out "Who do I want to be today?" in my planner and I really think that was powerful. More powerful than I realized at the time. I ended up getting a lot more accomplished yesterday than I have in a couple of days and it felt good. Now I wasn't perfect. I had time on the couch coloring and I almost fell asleep in my chair reading, but overall it was a really good, productive day.
In the book Atomic Habits, he's talking about habits that we all have that we are not even aware of. I'm going to focus today on those and see if I can find them. I'm a lot more mindful and aware than most people, so I'm going to see if I can pick up on my unconscious habits. This should be interesting.
Other than that, I really have nothing. I did go to the gym yesterday and it should have been leg day. But with the lingering knee issue, I modified it some and made it more of a core day. I did do some leg work laying on the floor, but not a lot.
So I'm off to read for a bit before anyone else gets up and starts making noise.
