After coming across an inspirational blog recently, I decided to start another project in addition to my adventure list. I will be making small changes in my life by subtracting something negative (e.g., excessive worry, distractions such as TV/internet, etc.) and adding something positive (e.g., mindfulness, writing, exercise) for one week at a time. I think that this experience will help me learn about myself and grow into the person I want to be.
Read more about this project, and my One Week ideas, here.
For my first week (Oct. 10-16), I will be going one week without negativity and one week with random acts of kindness. I have really been struggling with seeing the glass as half empty lately.
My plan is whenever negativity strikes, I will turn things around by doing something nice for someone else. Read more about how good deeds help relieve depression, anxiety, and stress here.
I’ll post next week about how my first One Week challenge goes.
