Chain - Keep Us Together
I have a habit of when I miss one thing or day of my to-do list, my whole life gets derailed for a few days. I look at what I missed and think, "Well, I didn't do it. So now I have to start over or makeup for it tomorrow - who has time for that?" And it could be something as simple as a breathing exercise to help with my singing - which is important to me. Or so I think it would be.
Sometimes it's not. I don't doubt that I want to be a musician/songwriter/guitarist/singer, but sometimes I don't want to put in the work on the latter. That's the truth. I don't always want to practice singing in the way I want to write songs or play guitar. I want to do it because I don't want to depend on someone else all the time to sing my songs, but I also would rather write songs! It's a conundrum of sorts.
The point is, I use an app called Way of Life and my goal for the week is to not miss a day in my eight things. So far I'm doing well. My eight things are:
- Up by 9AM
- Mobilize - 10 Minutes
- Practice yoga twice a week
- Take a walk (or do 30 squats if it rains)
- Vocal Exercises
- Read for 30 minutes or more
I haven't had an all-green / perfect chain for all of them yet. So I'm going to fix that.
And then I hope to never break the chain.
