Changes I Need To Make

In order to become a better person and live a better life, these are the changes I need to make. First and foremost;

Stop planning and start doing.

  • Stop smoking.
  • Exercise regularly.
    • Do some form of cardio exercise three days a week.
    • Do some form of resistance exercise two days a week.
  • Spend at least 15 minutes outside in natural light every day.
  • Give my body better nutrition.
    • Eat breakfast every day.
    • Drink at least one glass of water a day.
    • Eat at least five pieces of fruit and/or veg a day.
  • Meditate for at least 15 minutes every day.
  • Be more creative.
    • Write at least two blog posts a week.
    • Practise origami by creating one model every day.
    • Practise embroidery by sewing for at least 15 minutes every day.
  • Organise my household tasks more efficiently.
    • Get routine tasks done first thing in the day, so they don’t hang over me for the rest of it.
    • Plan non-routine tasks well in advance, so I get them done before they’re horribly overdue.
  • Keep learning.
    • Prioritise reading non-fiction over fiction.
    • Pick a topic to study each week, and spend at least 15 minutes a day reading about it.
  • Develop useful skills.
    • Learn to drive.
    • Take a first aid course.

And once again, because it’s my biggest weakness;

STOP PLANNING AND START DOING. Even if my plans aren’t perfect, I need to recognise that nothing ever is, and if I put off doing until I have the perfect plan I’m never going to leave the planning stage and get on to the doing stage.
