01.03.2021 | “It’s Time To Make Some Little Changes…”

Lyrics: “Little Changes”, Frank Turner 2018

This almost became one of the few posts so far without a lyrical title. I even typed that I couldn’t be bothered to look up a song or bit of a song to match my current mood. But then it struck me. Duh! I do know a Frank Turner song for most of my moods after all.

It’s one of those times, where I feel and think I should / need to make some changes. Not necessarily here on the blog, but in my life in general. Less time on my phone / on social media. More sleep. Being more active. More or less a lot of… “more” and “less”. Less bad habits, more good habits. But also more forgiveness (for myself). More kindness (also to myself). Such a self-centred post, but hey, my blog, my self.

The alternative title for this post was “Mindful March”, because I do love alliterations. In lyrics and otherwise.

This morning I went for a walk before I had my coffee and before I checked my phone. Well, not quite, I had a quick glance on my phone to see, if there was anything really important / pressing. But then I turned the Forest app on and went outside in the dark, around 6.15 AM. Why so early? Because after a whole day of work (from home) and visiting with my mum and running errands I’m often too exhausted to do any kind of exercise in the evening. So I thought I try to get out and get some fresh air and some exercise in the morning. I listened to a 10% Happier podcast and sort of enjoyed myself. Go figure. I might do it again tomorrow.

I still spent too much time on my phone afterwards. Discussing museum events and other things ๐Ÿ˜‰ on WhatsApp. Checking Facebook for reaction on my post in a fandom group. All that nonsense. I definitely want to do better in that regard tomorrow.

At least I stopped myself from buying any kind of junkfood today and also ate mostly healthy or at least what I consider healthy :-). Go Me.

For most of the time while I was typing this post, I was also listening in on our local Greens Meeting. Multitasking galore. But I feel like I’m backing the best use of my time this way to be honest. And I want to go to bed at a reasonable hour, so I need to hurry this up.

Going to bed to a reasonable hour is another of those little changes. Let’s see how long I can keep this up. And when I will actually go to bed tonight. I spent WAY too much time – unsuccessfully – to find a photo of Frank doing the Little Changes routine on stage. So here is a random one from the ones I’ve uploaded to my blog so far…
