Jan. 8th -1st week update

Had a pretty relaxing day.  Hit the gym early and then knocked out most of my daily tasks early as well as took the kids to the mall and ran some errands before taking Lucas home to Rochester.  

I was not perfect today. I did not find time to get through a huge orange tote in my office that I know will be a huge undertaking but I’m determined to get through it this week.   

So I am a week into the happiness project.   How it is going?  My goal this month was to improve my physical energy levels by drinking water and going to the gym and my mental energy by clearing clutter and planning my day out.   So far I think it’s a huge success.   I’m definitely feeling less stressed and more accomplished and as I learned from recent stints of water consumption I just feel better when I’m hydrated.  

I still get a little moody at work when things turn into a cluster fuck by I feel like my funks of sadness and frustration at both home and work are fewer and last less.   

I feel myself being more patient and listening more to my staff and kids.  Offering comforting words more than hurtful criticisms.   I still need to find a way to connect with my wife more.  Listen and engage more.   But one week down…Fifty one to go. I like when this is going

I was near the end of 2017 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
