Chronic Underachiever

Updated: Oct 1, 2021

So the journey to de-clutter, reinvigorate a love for yoga and cultivate peace of mind began a mere week ago. In this time I have fell on vastly different ends of the spectrum: fully energized and totally zapped. It's definitely a good reminder that things are meant to eb and flow; that you can't have light without dark; and you can't appreciate a totally clean kitchen if you haven't seen the dishes stacked a mile high.

Although I surpassed my expectations of posting blogs (6/7 days - what, what!), and doing yoga (4/4, per Rachel), AND getting outside WITHOUT my phone (++plenty of hours this weekend) -- I feel like I underachieved. I'm not really sure why, either. It's like I'm anticipating disappointing myself.

I plan to implement these ideas in order to avoid disappointment:

  1. Meal prepping so I don't ravenously and mindlessly snack when I get home

  2. Plan my yoga, workouts and evenings in advance!

  3. Do some chores during the commercials


  5. Put my phone on the charger and leave it there

These are all things I try to do anyway, but it's nice to have it there for me to see as I strategize ways to be more productive, do more things I love & waste less time.

Take Care, Be Kind, With Gratitude,
