This sounds like a self-help suggestion, but it’s actually really fun and the best part is trading your list with your friends and/or spouse if you can convince them to do it.
Heather challenged me to do make a list of 50 things I like to do, and then she went all over-achiever on my ass and came up with more than 100. This month when she was trying to figure out what to do on her birthday, it was exactly her flavor of a geeky challenge to see how many of her favorite things could be packed into one day.
An excerpt of my list:
have adult slumber parties at Tahoe cabins
be complimented at work for my ideas
buy craft supplies
buy food at Monterey Market for Julian
check the mail
cross country ski when it’s sunny
discuss things with Ryan
eat fish tacos and have pina colada at Picante on Friday night
eat soft chocolate chip cookies
fall asleep on couch
get 10K steps in one day
give handmade gifts
What’s on your list? Post an excerpt of your list (or the whole thing!) and comment with the link.
Let doing these things more frequently be a recipe for “you 2.0”. (Thanks to Kammie for the expression).
