Financial responsibility AND finding a workout routine!
Exercise for purchases!! Worked it out with my Financial Coach today that I need to feel my purchases and not just in my wallet. I was walking by a store that had a knockoff brand that I LOVED 10 years ago. When I didn’t need to be a human turtle and carry everything with me and on my back. Daily. In other words it wasn’t practical. But, I reasoned with myself, it was cheap. I realized two things in this moment:
1) Impulse purchases and low dollar items are what are my downfall.
2) If I attach a physical responsibility to my monetary want, do I still want it? As in, was the bag worth $10 AND 10 push ups. Nope. My desire to own that goes away.
Ok, I realize this isn’t the complete answer to my work out issue, or to my financial issue, but its maybe a step in the right direction.
Focusing on my relationship with myself:
I haven’t touched on this one yet in my updates–partially because I sort of do it and don’t know I’m doing it. However, I should report. It is now a habit to have face time, as in be in the same location with, a friend.
LL and I are picking books for our podcast that are in the personal growth/self-help arena, and I’m focusing on other things in my life that make me stronger as a single person. So I’ll be a part of a pair, not a half a person until I find someone.
Cleaning and Organizing:
I went through a lot of papers that were just sitting around my room. I often times open mail, and keep the part that is important and then “refile” it in my room in a pile. I need to figure out a better way to do this… if you have a good idea on filing papers that I just need to look at in a week or so when I have time to actually read them, and them will toss or actually file them, please leave a comment or email your suggestion to firstname.lastname@example.org
