A few days ago, I watched a TedTalk called “try something new for 30 days.”
This wasn’t the first time I heard about 30 day challenges, but for whatever reason, this time I was confvinced to try it. Probably because I’ve been telling my students that if they want to get better at English, then they need to practice every day. Recently, I’ve also been feeling like my VNese is kind of stuck. I haven’t really been improving or really focusing on it. It’s just kind of being maintained.
So after watching this clip, I decided that there were a few things I wanted to add and take away from my life.
In these 30 days, I’m going to:
- Practice Yoga
- Study Spanish
- Do something creative (in this case, I’m gonna learn how to draw or play the ukulele)
- Spend less time on facebook (an hour a day max)
- Exercise (push ups or squats everyday)
This is only the second day, but I already feel pretty satisfied. Since I don’t spend a lot of time on fb, I realized that I have a lot of time to do whatever I want. Today, I already practiced Spanish, practiced drawing, and exercised. The only thing left is to do some yoga before bed (and not be pulled into facebook).
Actually, since I’m not on facebook, I really don’t know what to do. I thought about adding some more to my challenges, but that’s probably a bad idea. I don’t want to feel like I’m doing so much that I decide to quit everything.
If you were gonna do a 30 day challenge, what would you add or subtract from your life? You should join me!
