Alright, so I spent sometime this weekend designing The Sunshine Project. Often, I create really complex projects for myself that have 4 million steps and, let’s be honest with that many steps, is it any wonder that I am partly cloudy instead of party sunny or fully sunny? So, the Sunshine Project is a relatively easy one. I came up with a list of things that I know brighten me up and a chart for each day of the week. The plan? To try and do 5 things a day that put more pep in my step. It can be as easy as drinking a cup of hot tea, doing my cardio, reading for 15 minutes outside in the sun (and that’s a double dipper), and playing with Happy and, walla, we have the target 5 for a day. Below is the list of sunshine steps that I compiled and the very no frills chart that accompanies the journey (each sunshine step I take for the day is listed in one of the boxes). I hope you’ll play along at home and share your journey here! I’ll be back with an udpate later this week or early next week (and I have to go ahead and say that I am starting the week with a huge energy burst because I figured out two very complex for me technology issues this weekend and blew my own mind with what I could accomplish when I just stuck it out (and kept asking Bing what Iwas doing wrong). I told BF, and I quote, “I couldn’t be more proud of myself if I had invented the computer myself.” So I am riding my rush of energy into the week, because, that’s why it’s useful!
