Excursions

Now

Here’s my thoughts log presented as a simple bulleted list and updated frequently, hopefully once a week at the very least. I have learnt from experience that anything more complicated and I would not be able to keep up.

What Have I Beed Focused on?

  • A lot of work at work, sips the energy in weekdays. I’m having a lot of fun (and after a long long time) getting through the projects at work. The days dawn calmer, and pass on faster.
  • I am reading a lot of books recently. I have replaced every time that I used to steal an empty glance at my mobile by one with Kindle. I have recently set a 40 pages a day goal for myself and good to see it working.
  • Time to stay healthy with a fixed morning routine. I have been following that for more than a month now. That’s a nice feeling.

  • Busier days also presents a possibility of burning out. I’m consciously planning my day to include a lot of family time both in the morning and the evenings. It has been working for a month now. May 5, 2021
  • Going through a Daily Meditation routine. For the last month, every morning I meditate for at least 10 minutes. I know it isn’t long, but am pleased that at least I have managed to stick to the routine. May 5, 2021
  • Minimize overthinking about platform. Just write. I have had this thought for a couple updates now. And I think am slowly getting into the groove now. I don’t think too much about why a posts exists where it exists but rather go ahead with whatever am more comfortable at that time. May 5, 2021
  • I’m reading a lot more these days. For my newsletter, and also otherwise. My Goodreads currently reading list is loaded with multiple books. April 21, 2021
  • Build a routinue that’s healthy for mind. April 21, 2021
  • Thanks (literally) to the ongoing pandemic, I have recently moved to my hometown. It has allowed me, after a long time, to spend some quality time with my parents. April 7, 2021
  • The changed location has also meant a very different routine. And I haven’t been able to get used to it yet. April 7, 2021
  • I am writing a lot less and am not happy about it. April 7, 2021
