Ardently Adventuring

A couple weeks ago I was talking about the addictiveness of the Pomodoro Technique with the woman who introduced me to the concept. I’m not sure why that is, but it’s been in the back of my mind ever since. I thought about it again this morning as part of the larger concept of self-care/life optimization.

I’ve reached the point where I’m constantly experimenting with new ways to take better care of myself. Quitting sugar has been a huge improvement for me (and two weeks from today I can consider myself an official quitter), and just this morning I decided that my next experiment is to make the first hour of my day computer-free.

This process of experimenting with new quality of life improvements feels addictive too. The more changes I make that lead me to feeling, for lack of a perfect word, better, the more I want to try other things. As I feel happier and more energetic, I want to spend less time in front of the computer, etc.  I’m choosing to me curious about this rather than judging it good or bad.

Have any of you had similar experiences?
