Just because I stopped posting, doesn’t mean nothing was being done about the challenge 😛 I was simply being easy on myself with the posting since no one commented with their progress on the challenge….yet? XD
- a) For 10 minutes, just be conscious of my thoughts. b)for another ten minutes change my negative thoughts and concern myself with what I want vs. what I don’t want (eg. instead of “I hate the rain,” I will change this thought to “I want the sunshine”.
- Be easy on myself with my studies. See the study tasks as, “Read one word at a time and then try to understand it,” as a substitute for, “Learn the whole assignment, b*tch you got exams!” (LOL!)
- Reward my efforts with….the Internet 😛
I did Task no 1 everyday except 2-3 days when I was really busy (Read: forgot).
The tasks were easy and they weren’t intensive so I didn’t see my results fast. It’s still a work in progress. One thing I noticed after doing these exercise was the new-found control over my thoughts. Although the effect was temporary, it was still progress 🙂
