The Sun Still Shines
Thursday, April 02, 2020
Today I focused on bringing calmness and serenity into my life. This is a picture of Tulum that I took many years ago, and thought it fitting for today's goal of calmness and serenity.
I spent the afternoon working on my yard in the nice sunny weather. It is that time of year in Tucson where the weather is just turning from late winter to early summer - it's usually a short period of time where the weather is just spectacular, and today was one of those days. I grow and collect lots of weird succulents, so there is always something to do with the plants I have everywhere. Somedays it can be a bit of a chore, but today it was a welcome distraction.
I have a big running list of various projects I'd like to work on around the house. The movement on the list has been somewhat slow, and I was originally feeling like I ought to be more productive given the extra time I have had these days. But sometimes - taking it easy and spending a little bit of downtime can be a good thing.
I ate within my calorie budget today, and got 10k steps which partly included a 45 min walk around my hilly neighborhood. I do need to work on going to bed at a more regular time each night to ensure I get sufficient sleep so I am recharged. I think tomorrow my to do list will include phoning a few friends I haven't seen or talked to in awhile.
Best wishes to each of you.
