Meditation (Day 58)
So, I adjust my form too much. Certain parts I've gotten very good at staying
still, but my neck and shoulders I still mess with, though I think I've found a
good place for them. I think it's time to try staying still, maybe at the half
way mark when I switch leg positions I can do a quick neck/shoulders thing for
a reset and to see if things seem fine.
It's becoming a significant distraction, and I don't think there's anything to
worry about my posture right now. It's just a matter of getting used to staying
still like I did for my legs and my back.
Today is probably going to be weekly review and monthly review day. There'll be
some organization of project space as part of the usual review, but likely not
work on any extracurriculars. Except for a 15-minute session with a friend
(we'll be doing programming questions together).
Staycation Starts Today
This coming week would've been Quakecon, but it was properly cancelled. They're
doing a "Quakecon at Home" thing next weekend, and I'll participate.
This bit of time off will be my first large chunk of time off since I started
meditating. I'm curious how that will affect it. I'm going to try to start some
habits I think, but per my new project rule, none of them can be more than 15
minutes a day (hence the 15-minute call with friend) and they can only increase
in length-per-day by 5 minutes each week (starting on a Sunday). This setup
worked very well for meditation so I'd like to try to apply it to most new
Though, unlike meditation, there are some things I'd like to add to my list of
things I do regularly, but not necessarily everyday. Maybe still a good idea to
start with 15-minutes per day, but on Sundays I can remove it from some days as
well as increase length, or something. Days don't have to be set in stone,
I'll play with it.
Further, this is a vacation, and originally a video-game oriented one. So, I'll
be making sure there's a higher ratio of entertainment-to-productivity. And
I'll add some gaming in there. Though I also want to add some books (quite to
check out quite a few from the library for this week, even), especially since
reading books everyday hasn't been a habit I've maintained successfully.
And maybe get one blog post in this week, too. Any of the ones I have listed in
my blog area could be one to work on (most of them are just working titles
right now, basically).
Just hit this reminder in my Notion.... I was planning on switching to Dvorak
after a year of Colemak (it has been two years). This wouldn't be a bad week to
I'll think about it. Will revisit Tuesday.
