30 Days of Meditation Challenge: Day 1

Sigh. Like every night for the past month, I didn’t sleep well. It’s not the worst sleep I’ve had by far, but I wouldn’t say it was great either. I suppose it was better than earlier this month – multiple nights of only a few hours of sleep at a time can be really draining.… Continue reading 30 Days of Meditation Challenge: Day 1

30 Days of Meditation Challenge

So… I didn’t finish my last challenge, 30 Days of Productivity. That’s not to say I wasn’t productive – I just stopped blogging because I realized about halfway through that it wasn’t on my list of priorities! 😛 I mean, after spending ~3 hours making charts analyzing how I spend my time, I had to… Continue reading 30 Days of Meditation Challenge

30 Days of Productivity: Day 12

Time Breakdown: Analysis: It was Saturday, so I spent most of the day 1. going out with friends and 2. commuting home for Mother’s day with my roommate! I even snuck in a 30 minute algorithm study session. Honestly, I’m pretty happy with the way I spent the day. 🙂 At this point, I’m 100%… Continue reading 30 Days of Productivity: Day 12

30 Days of Productivity: Day 11

Time Breakdown: Analysis: Given I’ve been spending such a large percentage of my time working towards relaxing for the past couple days, I’d hope to have some results. I would honestly say I’m not as zen as I’d like to be, but relaxation isn’t a state that comes naturally to me. Most of the time… Continue reading 30 Days of Productivity: Day 11

30 Days of Productivity: Day 10

Time Breakdown: Analysis: I spent a large percentage of my time working towards my goals, but a lot of that (7 hours!) was relaxing. I’d split that 7 hours between catching up with a friend (really great… we talked for hours) and reading (relaxing, but not as great). I’m finding that I am much happier… Continue reading 30 Days of Productivity: Day 10

30 Days of Productivity: Day 9

Here’s to day 2 of my goal-oriented tracking! Funny thing is, I already feel more “productive” – maybe it’s because I’m focusing on getting high priority things done over other things.   Time Breakdown: Analysis: Hey, hey! I spent an even larger percentage of my waking hours working towards my goals. Cheers to that! I… Continue reading 30 Days of Productivity: Day 9

30 Days of Productivity: Day 8

  As I discussed yesterday in my Week 1 Productivity Analysis, I changed the way I’m breaking down my time from “traditional” categories (such as relax vs work) to goal oriented categories. My goals are as follows: Sleep hygiene/take productive breaks (relaxing, taking quality breaks) Clean apartment Lose weight (preparing meals, exercise, talking with trainer) Get… Continue reading 30 Days of Productivity: Day 8
