The january mission in the happiness projext is not progressing that well - it should be about exercise, sleep and decluttering.
Exercise is the best part - I will reach 1500 minutes today and have good hope to be over 2000 minuutes before the month is over.
Sleep - not so good, yesterday I could not go to sleep until three, I suspect having too much garlic in my dinner was the reason. This nght was better although I woke upå at four and that is a bit too early. The cat woke me up at one too, but I could go back to sleep (after locking the cat out in another room). The "prolem" is that I fass asleep in froint of the teve as early as seven, too early too really go to bed then. The solution is simple, not to look at teve but that is a bit hard.
Decluttering - have a hard time to get around to it alhtough I "only" have to do ten minutes, it is amazingly hard to make myself do it.
A good thing done was to finally have my car inspected, that had been nagging in the back of my head since october and in fact, the car had the driving ban (?) and had I been stopped by police it would have been very expensive indeed...
The reason for not booking inspection was that I had a blinkjer light not working, I knew the car would not pass with that so I wanted to fix it. I DID in fact fix it in august and on a Renault Megane that involves a lot of unscrewing stuff, you are told to go to a workshop to do it and that annoyed me.
Butas I never got around to fixing it again, I just did it...booked inspection that is. It turned out that I hade two other things wrong so it has to go in a work hsop anyway, but I have a month to fix it and the driving ban is no longer on my car which is a relief.
I have gotten a partial work leave for for months, I will work with my business edition only which means 60 procent duty and 60 proecnt pay. Immedeately after the decision I panicked - I want to do this because I want to try to find lecture work for the free time, but I very much doubt my ability to sell my services... it is silly because a) I CAN survive on that 60 procent pay and b) I CAN get som preretirement money from the age of 61 so I can "fill up" the monthly sum if I want c) it is four months I can do this...
But selfdoubt is there, should I not focus on losing weight and getting healthy?
The change of gym did bring another good thing that I didnīt think of - some friends are there who are really good for supporting my motivation for developing my professional skills and going on with promoting my business.
It will be fine... so I will use the extra early wake up time to go swimming, I donīt know if the car will start but if it does not I have many hours to charge the battery and try again.
