🤯Life Rule that I’m trying to implement

 

“Behave like the person that you want to become, not like the person that you are today”

👽Behavior policy of the Week

“No cake after eight”

One of the reasons why I created my own habit journal was because I struggled to stick to my resolutions for quite some time…
In The Behavior Kickstarter I’m forced to create new behavior policies on a weekly basis in order to decrease disempowering habits and increase habits that help me to become who I want to be.
One of my latest bad habits was snacking right before I go to bed (and with snacking I mean stuffing entire plum cakes into my face).

Implementing feeding windows (12.00-20.00) has helped me tremendously to improve the quality of my sleep.

If you are struggling with morning lethargy, you might consider trying this behavior policy.

📚Book of the Week

Vagabonding – Rolf Potts

There’s nothing like vagabonding: taking time off from your normal life—from six weeks to four months to two years—to discover and experience the world on your own terms. In this one-of-a-kind handbook, veteran travel writer Rolf Potts explains how anyone armed with an independent spirit can achieve the dream of extended overseas travel.

🧠Exercise

 

Follow Your Flow Technique 

This exercise is par was designed because formalizing what makes you lose track of time might be an indicator of something that could be a future source of happiness in your life. Being asked to identify sources of flow in your life might furthermore help you draw more specific conclusion about what you find meaningful.

1. What makes you lose track of time?
2. Is there something that you love, that others would consider work?
3. Is there an area in your life where things come easy to you and you get better results with less investment in comparison to others?
4. Any surprising insights? A forgotten hobby or passion you want to rekindle? Notes you want to take? Write them down! Thoughts on paper last longer.

That’s it, folks! 

What was your favorite hack from this week’s Behavior Weekly? What would you like to have different in the future?

How?
Just post a story on Instagram with your favorite hack and tag me in it so that I can repost and reply to your story.

Have a wonderful weekend and live your best life!

Daniel
