I’ve been really bad at my daily updates recently. Things have just been insanely busy and stressful. I’ve managed to stay on track with the Whole Life Challenge, but to be honest, at the moment I’m just going through the motions. I haven’t felt like I’ve made any real progress or change in the past week and a half. My mind and heart just haven’t been into it. Most of this is really because of the stress I’ve been under lately.

I actually cannot wait until the sleep portion of this challenge is over. I don’t think it suits me at all. I’ve slept, but I haven’t felt rested … to me that just feels like a waste of time because  I could have been up doing something else.

In the end it’s all about planning, balance, and choices isn’t it? Right now I’m choosing to sleep (to get the points). Normally though I’d choose getting other stuff done over sleep. Perhaps I need to work on organizing my time better so that I can fit everything in. In any case, it’s definitely something I have to keep working on.

As I said, the past few days have just been about getting in the bare minimum. This is not how I really want to continue the rest of the challenge, but it is just the way things are at the moment. Here are my daily summaries:
