I'm not looking to reinvent myself or turn my life around. I am looking to rejuvenate my creativity and energy. These aren't New Year goals or resolutions, these are lifelong guidelines I'm trying to stick to and form into habit.
DON'T JUST SIT
By that I mean, don't simply sit there and do nothing. If I am watching tv or simply bored pull out some paper and pencils and sketch something... anything. I saw a notebook at Barnes and Noble last week that I thought was a good idea and may steal the premise: it gives you a word, you sketch something related to that word.
Or just pull up to the computer and write something... Anything. OR program something or learn something or... Anything. Just don't sit there.
Relaxation is fine. However, there is no need to be inactive to relax. Ride the bike, take up archery, work on your car, clean your computer, take a walk through a park, have a conversation. I've wasted too much time doing nothing over the last 10 years. I'd like to do things. Biking is very relaxing for me. I use a mountain bike for road and trail. My wife, a friend, and I recently started archery.
This is pretty self explanatory. I cut out soda and most sweets. Looking to get my portions down. I lhave imited my fast food consumption, but I can do better.
Oooooh, the bit R! Responsibility. I'm old enough to know what I should be doing, and young enough to think it's not important... But wise enough to know that's wrong. DMV? Gotta do that... Bank business? Gotta do that... Health Insurance? Need that. Birthdays, anniversaries, important dates? Need to remember those, or at least keep track of them.
Alright, I'm done for now. I know the first two seem like repeats, but I think they are separate. I'm not trying to tell anyone to do these things, this is for me.
Also: it's been a long time and "Hi everybody!"
