in Going Without

Going without in February

I want to reduce the mental weight of my current daily habits.

So, for the month of February, I’m going to focus on some things that require minimal effort with maximum return. I am testing the theory of going without.

I am literally fueled by caffeine. In an effort to treat my pounding caffeine headaches, I am going to cut down to one latte a day and replace my milk with soy. I should also add that living in Melbourne will not make this an easy task.

I’m not going to purchase any new technology. I recently gave my iMac to my parents. Not only was it a much appreciated gift but also a major weight off my own shoulders. I took a computer out of my bedroom and saved myself some mental space by clearing out that corner. Now all I have is space and white walls.

I am going to go without the partying. It doesn’t achieve¬†anything. I spent three years chilling out and the last year making up for it. For now, it will be the occasional beer or scotch on a Sunday afternoon in summer.

Finally, I will attempt to minimise my self serving behaviour. I’ll try and share positive energy with others and see where that leads me.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
