Happiness Project Struggles.
I wrote a few days ago, listing all the resolutions that I felt that I had made good progress on. Notice that I said “progress”. I can admit that I wasn’t always perfect in making these changes but I can say that I am a lot better at these aspects…and happier of course.
But there are some areas of my life that I made resolutions. And some of those resolutions I struggled to keep up in the long-term.
- Eating Healthy : I had glimmers of hope earlier in the year with resolutions like Eat a salad and Extreme Dieting, while writing this I just remembered the one day water fast. What I stupid idea. smh.
- Consistent exercise : I did do a great deal of exercise this year. Putting up improved performance in the Tough Mudder and Boilermaker. But I failed to keep up in a 3 day a week work out regimen. No good excuse. Sure I have been busy but that’s no excuse. I need to be better at making time.
- Disconnect from work : I did manage to take a full week’s vacation this year and while I was able to disconnect from work for short periods of time. Once I was put on ADHD meds, Hyper-focus was back with a vengeance
- Controlling Impuslivity : I have truly lost that thing in your brain that keeps you from saying something that you shouldn’t say. I can be mean and I can lose my temper. I am sorry.
But despite these struggles I have had a year to remember and if nothing else I have set up an even better 2018.
