Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic as I woke up later after a restless sleep because I had stayed up too late the night before playing board games. Because I am a morning person, I was still able to sneak in a meditation and writing before putting on my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, running shorts, and earmuffs. I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and some stretching. I ran in the snowy, winter in Great Falls, MT. The cold early morning air was frigid winter but because I was only going barely over a mile due to time constraints, it did not bother me. One thing that I am still figuring out is how to enjoy my earmuffs without them needing to be adjusted every few minutes. My route again allowed me to pass the one mile challenge (1.1 miles, Odometer = 165.9 miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.
Fitness: Back at the home I am staying in, I stretched for 2 minutes before continuing my routine. Yesterday was an upper body day so today was a lower body day. I did 3 “sets” of each movement. 3 sets of 11 squats (30 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 16 lunges (8 each leg, 48 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 20 “breaths” of planking, stretch. I can do all of this without needing a gym.
Daily Priority #2 - Spiritual Health
Spiritual Reading: Faith ND
Meditation: I set my alarm for 4 minutes of walking mediation and 4 minutes of sitting meditation as I continued my meditation practice. I used my stress eraser. During the 4 minutes of walking meditation (two, 8 foot sections) I scored 13 points. Then I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation focusing on the "mental touching points" and I finished with a point count of 27, 14 more for sitting (Point Count = 1058). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually.
Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health
Writing: I continued writing about"Nomadic Exhaustion" today (words written 161, Word Count = 11,443). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a writer because there is always time to write.
Daily Priority #4 - Emotional Health
