If you do not want to read the full blog , below table summarizes my habit status which you can check out.
Now lets speak about self development.. When can a person call himself/herself that they have improved ? is it when they are better than their peer? or is it when they feel they are better than their idol?
My Answer: If i feel better than myself compared to yesterday then i can proudly say i have improved. Why did i say that now? if have seen my calendar of Week2 the number of red blocks have reduced significantly, now thats a serious progress right?? Time to appreciate myself :).
Workout & Intermittent Fasting
As i mentioned in Week1 and 2 workout don’t have to be something which you see on youtube with dudes and dudettes lifting tons of weights and then flaunt their abs and muscles, as beginners start with couple sets fo push-ups or a walk for 30mins, or play a sport for couple of hours. This is exactly what i did and i can say they also work and you can feel the change in your body within couple of weeks. Slow and steady wins , all we have to do is just keep moving.
Yes there are 2 red blocks on IF section, i did wanted to avoid them but when you have farewell parties which go on late night and you are really exhausted you need to eat something right? so same was my case on 6th-August. And i going forward i would be making saturday as my cheat day where in i will not be following IF and will allow myself to celebrate the green blocks which gets achieved for the entire week.
Listing items to be accomplished on the task list and striking them of when its done is something which satisfies you a lot, as you don feel lazy and it makes you feel as lot productive and gets you good amount of free time. One observation is you get tired with lesser breaks and cant focus much in later half of the day , so i will be scheduling my breaks and try different methods to improve my productivity and journal everything. Even this week i used google sheets but for the next week am go the traditional way of writing things on Sticky notes.
I had an intense game of badminton for 2hrs straight on Saturday which exhausted and wanted to rest for the whole day, day was too tiring and was unable to read at all, except for one red block i read all the other days and can see the progress on the books on my kindly app, i never knew that spending 20-30mins a day can make you finish a book so soon, reading is not boring if you love what you read. 🙂
When you are trying to improve yourself there would be too many distractions especially when you plan too many changes for your life style and since your will power is finite don plan to use it for all the things you want to finish in your day. Start working on your “Why” power which gives you different ways to keep moving then to stop.
