First things first, let’s see if Week 1 ended up being a success or a flop…
WEEK 1 Goal: Practice focused meditation every day for 10 minutes (4.5/7)
I think deciding to do this during a vacation week was a bad idea. My overall plan this week was relax, get some things done, and see people especially Laura who was in from out-of-town. I had the chance to get extra sleep too which always helps. I think that was the key part that really got me centered. Some days I forgot about it and tried to fit the 10 minutes in as I was already bed. That idea was a major fail since I’d end up falling asleep before the 10 minutes were up. I am going to keep trying to get this done every day, just not when I’m yawning.
Now for this week…
Week 2 Goal: Start every morning with unsweetened green tea.
The fact that I am a tea person is old news. I drink at least 3 cups of it a day. I can’t remember if it was an article I read or something I heard but the key point was about green tea and allergies. I have made green tea for years and knew that it supposedly has health benefits. Cancer fighting properties is one I see mentioned quite often. Allergies is not. I usually take a travel mug or water bottle with me when I’m out and about. The plan is to have my travel mug clean and ready to go every workday morning and have a pot of it ready for the weekend mornings. It should be interesting to see if it helps with my allergies
unless they decide to not act up this week.
