Habits

2018- Week 1 Challenge

It is exciting to start the weekly challenges. The problem with monthly challenges was it takes too much time to assess if I am on the right path or not. At a week level, it is easy to track.
 
So here we go
 
1.Book of the week: Fluent in 3 Months
 
It has only 156 pages which I can break down to 22 pages per day. The challenge is to make clear and actionable goals from the book. This book plays a role in contributing to the bigger goal of this year which is to speak Tamil and French fluently.
 
2.Course of the week: Viral Marketing and How to Craft Contagious Content
 
I started this course last week  to learn marketing. Aim is to complete anywhere between 30 – 60 minutes of the course. I can definitely spend 5 to 10 minutes on this everyday.
 
3.Habit of the week: Food Tracker
 
Even though I started this habit before, I lost the habit of entering things into it in the middle. This week I want to get back into this habit. To form any habit, there are 3 steps to it.
 
Trigger : Eating food is the trigger
Habit : Entering the details
Reward: Envisioning fat loss
 
4.Exercise Routine
 
Warm up

 
Yoga

  • Surya namaskaras – 4 times
  • Virabadrasana
  • Ustrasana
  • Janu sirasana
  • Sethu bandasana

 
Pranayamam

  • Anulom Vilom – 3 minutes
  • Kapalbathi – 2 minutes

 
5.Behavioral change: Pamper self
 
I chase perfection. I am too hard on myself. So I will tell myself that it is okay to fail. I will be nice to me like the way I am nice to others. I will do the favours to myself which I do to others. This way I will stop criticizing myself all the time.
 
How to measure it?
 
I will write down the good things I did for myself. I will also write where I failed to be nice.
 
6.Socializing:
 
I am known as the silent person. In order to change that image, last year I spoke to nearly 100 strangers. A few of them are now really good friends. Now the goal is to make friends with people who I can spend time with. I will find 4 people to talk to for at least 5 minutes everyday for this week to see how this is going to help.
 
That’s it for the first week.
What change do you want to see in yourself this week?
 
Happy Week 1 !
