Your life, week by week by week.

“nothing lasts forever” by anatol knotek
Gets me every time.

Limiting my time on Facebook.

Facebook is a necessary evil. I use it for work, to share my writing, and to stay in touch with a handful of friends. Otherwise, it’s a time suck that ultimately makes us less happy.

  1. Installing Detox (or News Feed Eradicator) for Chrome.

Writing three pages every morning.

Morning pages are three pages of longhand, stream of consciousness writing, ideally done first thing in the morning.

Moving more.

Staying active plays a major role in the number of squares you can cross off. And, unlike the passing of time, you have control over how often it happens.

Choosing experiences over things.

I used to vie for things. I thought once I had nicer clothes, an expensive car, higher job title, and fancy apartment, I’d finally feel happiness. So I shopped. Bought an Audi. Fought for promotions. Moved into a brand new apartment. I was closer than ever to being happy!

Choosing themes over resolutions.

I have never followed through with a New Year’s resolution. Not once.

Practicing meditation.

Meditation calms my nerves, clears my mind, and helps me focus.
