Teacher’s Reference Guides

  • Jordan Peterson Biblical Series – really enjoying these and have a couple left – will probably re-watch once I finish because there is so much depth to them…

Monthly Challenges

  • HeartMath HRV – doing just 5-10 minutes in the morning and at night in order to get into coherence and measure my heart rate variability (HRV). Definitely not a replacement for meditation but it is a great, quick way to get many of the physical benefits associated with coherence and meditation
  • Avoid lectin heavy foods (tomatoes, potatoes, legumes, beans, more) – wanted to try this after digging into Dr. Gundry’s Plant Paradox. I personally didn’t feel a huge difference and probably won’t keep up but I definitely didn’t feel worse and I know a lot of people who have felt huge differences on this protocol.

Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

Monthly Challenges

  • Review journal entries – helps me see where I spent my time, what was useful/useless, what brought me stress or joy, what I’ve learned, what I’ve done, etc. Broadly, this process helps me more clearly see what I should be doing more and less of
  • How to shoot a bow and arrow – not a ton of progress but learned the basics

Monthly Challenges

  • Pareto Spring Cleaning – done twice per year, I find this helpful to evaluate how things are going, where you’re spending your time, what’s working and what isn’t…
  • Write down one thing per day that you love about someone and give it to them at the end – great thing to do for anyone important in your life

  • Run a 6-minute mile – it had been a while since I was able to do this and it took some time to get it back but I’m happy I did. Probably won’t keep it up though…

  •  None this month

Monthly Challenges

  • Daily tweet – hardly did anything on Twitter before but it was fun to try to come up with a quick daily blurb that wasn’t totally worthless
  • No caffeine – I usually only drink 1-2 cups per day but this was surprisingly easy after the first 2 days. Definitely slept better but miss coffee and will go back to 1-2 per day
