Checking in: Last week my intention was to give attention to my most important tasks for at least 30m in the morning (before reading email, social media, and the like). I didn't do this intention at all. Each morning I would read email and social media and then think about what it was that I'd do for the rest of the day. I'm using social media as a crutch right now, in part because I'm realizing that I'm not going to be able to go too far away from the house without some lifestyle changes because of my cancer treatments. I haven't even sat on the porch in the back of our house much this year. Most times I'm pretty much inseparable from there. This time around I'm not even ready until it's 11am, and by then it's starting to get warm so I demure and don't do it. (There's also the cat factor to keep in mind, as Pixel really likes it when I lay on the bed). This week is also a chemo week so my schedule will be pretty topsy-turvey. I'm not sure how best to proceed with this but my intention is to work on making email and social media the last thing that I do. Perhaps I can think of it as a reward for doing the work. I'll need to play with this.
