The lovely Mollie from MollieReads created the #Do-A-Thon. It will be taking place during the first week of May. The event involves finding ways to live more mindfully, and to tackle the challenging things we never quite get to do often. So, here’s my Do-A-Thon “TBR.”
Do one thing that scares you or do something that challenges the story you tell yourself.
I have a very bad relationship with my body. Over the years, I have developed some disordered thinking and eating. So, I want to: be more mindful of what I eat, how much I eat. Facing my own body image issues by being more understanding of my eating habits will scare me, I know it. But, I think it’ll help me a lot by challenging my self narrative.
Rather than being a product of medications’ side effects, I get to be in control of my food intake and wellness.
Complete a project (creative or otherwise) that you’ve been putting off.
I need to sort through my closet and organize it better. In addition, I would like to revisit my poetry and wrap up some of the poems I did not finish. I have a lot of them jotted on my iPods.
Do something that involves someone else or do something for someone else.
This one makes me panic. I can try to comment on blogs more often during the week? And, I want to talk more on Goodreads and Twitter as well.
Learn something new.
I am going to try to do yoga every day of that week as well, to help foster a gentler approach to my relationship with my body. I would like to introduce physical flexibility again, because it used to bring me so much joy. While I used to practice yoga before getting too sick, I have gained so much weight, that it will be a whole new experience now.
Probably, I will aim for practicing through Yoga with Adrienne.
Do something to foster a calm or welcoming environment.
Read for an hour or two every day! I feel much better when I read. And, I want to live tweet or GR update my way through my reading experience.
