Last night I felt so lousy, and I am pretty convinced that the pizza was a pretty sizable factor in that feeling. Not that pizza is bad, but I knew I was making a poor choice, and I was making the poor choice because I was tired and feeling lazy. Also, yesterday was pretty convenience food-heavy. It's not exactly shocking that I felt crappy.
However, today's a new day.
A few years ago I read Gretchen Rubin's book "The Happiness Project." I didn't do anything with what she talked about in the book, though, until last night. One of my favorite bloggers, Katie at www.marriageconfessions.
read the book over the holidays and is starting her own happiness project. I liked her approach, and figured maybe it's time I did the same. So now it's official, 2014 is the year of Emily.
I'm in the process of deciding what twelve things I want to work on this year (one thing per month), but I know FOR SURE that in January I'm working on rest. Rest, as in getting enough sleep. It's important to me, and all this week I've been in bed (and asleep) before eleven. Holy cow, it's make a huge difference in my days. The one thing I'd like to try to work into this whole "get more rest" thing is waking up earlier. My oh my, how much better my mornings would be if I could get up half an hour earlier.
If nothing else, I want to use this "Happiness Project" as a chance to learn about myself and push myself in areas that I have let slide for awhile. It's time to challenge myself.
