Little Changes

TL;DR: New list-making scheme, new LJ/DW layouts/icons/moods, reading list.

I started using my weekly habits board again. This is the main affect of the New of New Year's. I start shit again.

I decided my habits need to be done at least once a week, instead of everything every day (except I do have some with (once a week), (3x a week), etc where I see fit). I actually have to put SHOWER on the list, because with my winter depression sinking its talons into me, it's hard for me to get up the energy to shower. Maybe I should go off-norm and shower mid-day, so I can't claim I'm too tired.

Since changing my monthly habit board to a weekly one, I've now got half the board to use for daily lists. I love making lists. They're my best way to 1) get shit done without forgetting, and 2) feel accomplished. I did just about everything from my first two days of lists, but yesterday, I only got done one thing (download some tunes), and I spent the rest of the time deciding which books to read this year, and read nearly an entire book in a day! Haven't done that since my days at Walden Books.

Here, I've also made a couple changes.

I had an increase in user icons, so I uploaded a few new ones, and changed my layout to match my new default. Currently working on uploading a new mood theme.

I also went through every livejournal I have and downloaded every single icon I could find in preparation for The Big Poof of LJ - is it really going to disappear?

If it does, my dreamwidth is the same username (diello). Bummed their paid accounts are so expensive, though. And I put up an entry so the last one seen isn't five years old.

I really need to work on a DW layout. I moved over what I could of my LJ layout, but it doesn't look exactly how I want yet. I'm just not good with DW coding yet.

Doing habits at least once a week is far better than doing them every day, to start. I read that if we do them every day, our mind processes them as a "chore" and makes it mentally harder to do, but that if we start with once or twice a week, we grow used to it and eventually do it more frequently.
It held true for me, so.

I never thought about it like that! Totally true - I do have to focusing on not making things into chores and making them into general accomplishments :)
