30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 14

It was kind of a hurried day. I don’t know if that’s because my morning routine was totally shot, or if my morning routine was totally shot because it was a hurried day. Either way, I got to spend a few minutes snuggling with the kid before rushing to get to work. Here’s the challenge breakdown.

Meditation

I try not to report on this stuff until it has actually happened, but I haven’t gotten to the meditation today and plan to do it before sleeping. Maybe I should have a checklist in the morning or on my computer at work. Some days it just feels like I can push these little things off until later, and then they keep getting pushed.

Exercise

Mostly the same here, except I made an effort to do a little extra stair walking at work today and did a few pushups at home in addition to running around with Theo a little after work. Every time I write something like this, I hear all these voices of people who are actually active saying, “You consider that exercise? It sounds like you’re just not asleep.” But this is where it is helpful to not compare yourself to others.

Kindness

Sent another note to a friend telling her that I appreciate her art. Hers was particularly thoughtful and kind, and I hope she knows how much her effort means.

Gratitude

  1. I’m grateful to have a roof over my head. This is a pretty generic thing to be grateful for, but┬áthe recent tragedies of others┬áhave made it a little more prominent for me.
  2. I’m grateful for podcasts and how they help me feel like my commute is productive.
  3. I’m grateful frogs and how they make Theo jump when he tries to touch them.

Something Positive

I was so busy that the day basically flew by. That can be a negative thing, but I felt pretty good when I left work today even though it didn’t feel like I had been there very long. That’s much better than the days where you feel like you’re just waiting out the clock.

Happy Monday. And yes, I am aware that tomorrow will be the day where we start heading downhill on this challenge.
