Checkin: 03/23: 5:16pm

Please do not leave feedback or comments.


Just for today (until midnight), I'm just checking in that I am going to avoid media unrelated to work until I have done my eight hours of work, with the following exceptions: media used for exercise purposes, PA checking in or accessing a 12-step meeting.  Apparently going down the rabbit hole of what I need to shop for online is not working for me, and thinking I can control what sort of media I use is not working for me.  So I'm doing this for now.

I'm also book-ending that I am starting my routine: exercise, breakfast, vitamins, shower/brush&floss teeth. 


Just checking in on this.  I think I'm going well with the work hours, bit, but not so much with the self-care routine.  I did the breakfast, running, vitamins and shower.  But have yet to brush/floss teeth, and finish exercise.

Going to drink my tea and start the timer.


Review: as far as time for work goes, I had about 34:59 back on the clock and I did not look at any outside media during my commitment.  I evenw orked past might.  So I'm going to give myself that.  As far as my self-care routine goes, that evidently want to prioritize.  Not looking at other media helped.  Also book-ending with my meeting helped.
