Lesson Challenge 8 – Purify

2013 07 19 PB Angel heaven gate

I may not be there yet,

but I’m closer than I was yesterday

Somewhere in the journey of life we start reading a map that points us in a million directions and in an attempt to tick off all the must do’s, should do’s, want to do’s we find our awake moments filled beyond capacity. As a result, we start to take short-cuts.

We all know that too much of anything isn’t good for us. Over indulgence, over consumption, call it what you might, in the end it takes a toll on our health and mental wellbeing.

I know at times when I’ve over indulged with SecondLife I can feel exhausted and emotionally flat. That is when I know a few early nights to bed and time off the computer and in the sunshine is required.

This week’s lesson is about having a self clean and purifying just one naughty habit we indulge in on a far too regular basis. Like usual, I recommend you read the complete lesson 8, on Alexa’s blog.

Your Self-Love Assignment: Take a moment to reflect on one habit that you could give up for the next seven days that would have the greatest benefit on your health. Before you give it up, think of things you can do to replace this behavior. This will help you through the rough times and support you in sticking to your resolve.

Many times as the clock hits 3.00AM I moan about how I am trying to get into bed just after midnight .. or at least before 1.00AM. I KNOW the benefits of getting that couple of hours sleep. The next day I physically feel better, refreshed and ready to tackle the challenges ahead. The well of patience which is rarely there on those 3.00AM hangover days is overflowing with happiness and good will to man. I’m more chatty and playful. The benefits are clearly there and yet I still struggle to send myself to bed. So this week to assist this challenge task I’ve set my computer to update at 1.10AM, every morning! That way if I have conveniently ignored the clock, my computer will send me to bed without discussion. Well .. that’s the idea.

    By 1.10 am, I have already gotten half a nights sleep. By 3 am, I am just an hour away from waking up. I would love to sleep to 6 am every day but it just does not work. My biggest vice is my computer. I would not dare shut it off………. my world would end.

      Only shutting it off whilst I sleep… To do so in waking hours would cause withdrawal symptoms I’m so not ready for.

    Shutting the computer off is kinda easy, at least to me. Always off when I sleep or am away, and while working, I must admit that nine outta ten times I am able to shut the computer off at about 10.30PM to get some sleep. Does that mean I am not too addicted to SL? lol
