I will be trying to meditate for 10 minutes during next 30 days.
Benefits of Mindfulness
Practicing mindfulness improves both mental and physical health.
Mindfulness involves both concentration (a form of meditation) and acceptance. Deliberately pay attention to thoughts and sensations without judgment.
I will start a series of 30 days challenges to improve the quality of life (Life hacking) and I will comment on the blog my victories and defeats.
Why 30 days?
How to choose a challenge?
The idea is to start with small challenges knowing your own limitations and trying to beat them. Determination is the key to success. I’ll add a reward to help in the hardest moments.
My first challenge is to run 150KM in the gym in 30 days. This will help to have more agility (I’d run a half marathon this year), lose some weight and to have a strong routine to go to the gym. My reward will be a nice apartment in Prague for 2 weeks in June.
Get ready for the challenge
Before you start a challenge, be clear with what you want to achieve and what you need. If you do not have what you need (in this case, a gym, running clothes), you may not be able to complete it and you will be frustrated.
There are many reasons for starting this blog. Firstly as a way to keep track of all my tips, tutorials, code snippets and various web projects. I like to be active in the world of web development and have been knocking out sites and libraries for years.
Secondly I wanted somewhere to document all my trips and experiences around the world and also all my life hacking improvements.
Finally, it will be a convenient place to dump my thoughts on PHP, MySQL, nginx, JS, and the world of computers in general.
So welcome, and thanks for reading.
