30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 22

Meditation Did just a few minutes this morning at the office. I might try to get another small session in this evening, but that isn’t the kind of thing I can be too sure of. It’s funny how I keep wondering if a longer session would be more effective, but I never seem to think […]

30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 21

Meditation I made sure to get a few minutes of meditation in this morning after I made it in to work. Then I did a few more at lunch. I think the multiple times per day is a good idea, but I’m not sure if it is better than one longer session. I feel like […]

30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 20

Meditation I didn’t get the meditating done in the morning, but I did manage to set aside a few minutes in the evening. Not right before bed either, which was a nice change. I also tried a different guided meditation, one that was supposed to be for creativity. It was much more of a visualization […]

30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 19

Weekends are still pretty tough on the challenge front. I feel like I am not able to control my time as much as I am during the week. Part of the problem is that I wake up later, usually with Theo, which means I don’t necessarily have any quiet time in the morning. Part of […]

30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 18

The morning started off a little different today. I suppose I could stop saying that since it implies that I have a normal morning against which all other mornings are judged, and since it is fairly clear by day 18 that this is not the case. I could just accept the fact that every day […]

30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 17

I installed a new alarm app last night to see if that would help with the getting up early. It worked. Melanie might not be all that happy with it (I may or may not have blinded her with my phone’s flash; I haven’t asked yet). So I wasn’t totally rushed on my way to […]

30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 16

Meditation Today I woke up and basically got right to work (on account of the time at which I got up). And my day got hijacked by a project I wasn’t anticipating. While eating lunch in front of my computer, though, I remembered how ineffective my meditating at night has been, and I realized that […]

30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 15

I’ve been pretending that today was something worth paying attention to because it is halfway through. Really, it’s just another day though. Well, it’s Melanie’s birthday, so I can’t exactly say that. Meditation Did this after putting Theo to bed again. I won’t repeat that this isn’t the best time or report that I dozed […]

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 […]

30 Day Happiness Challenge: Day 13

I don’t think Sundays are harder than Saturdays, but they aren’t any easier either. I’m not going to talk about sleeping in again because maybe it’s no longer sleeping in. Maybe it’s just the time I get up now (although I will need to get up earlier to make it to work on time). Instead, […]
