Exhaustion set in long ago and in an effort to put something down tonight, I will just run down my list with “checks”, where checks are due, that is. I think this is a great exercise anyway, just to refresh my memory of what exactly is on the list:
Zazen sitting meditation a minimum of 10 minutes per day (check!)
Eating until I am full, not stuffed, and following a balanced diet program where I will track my food/activity (check on the not stuffed part, no check on the tracking/writing down my food/activity part- I don’t think pancakes count as part of a balanced diet… hmm… better tomorrow)
Positive self talk (Roger that!)
Commit to working on a single task at a time (check!)
Do something kind for someone without expecting anything in return (check a couple of times over)
Abstain from gossip (check!)
Abstain from reacting to anger I might experience (Yes! er, I mean check!)
Exercise a minimum of 20 minutes per day (40 minutes of Yoga Vinyasa Flow this morning check!)
My weekly plan will also include:
Community service (scheduling for Wednesday- thinking about volunteering at a local homeless shelter or soup kitchen)
Video Blog documenting my community service experience (scheduling for Thursday)
WOW! I feel energized after checking all that off. Kinda cool.
Hope 2011 is off to a good start for you too!
