Going Wild

Becoming Wild

I just finished the book Go Wild, by Ratey and Manning (the book I referenced in my last post) and it gave me some food for thought.

Here are some ideas that I took from of the book.

  1. Get out into Nature.
  2. Be mindful, present like a hunter/gatherer.
  3. We were born to run especially without structured cushiony shoes.
  4. Find your tribe and be aware of who you surround yourself with.
  5. Eat a variety of foods and eat animals that have a varied diet.
  6. We are causing our own sickness, mental, physical and spiritual.
  7. Move your body, we were meant to move and moving it in novel ways helps the mind.
  8. Get enough sleep.

I am excitedly smug to say I already do some of these things, and I am working on others.  This book just kinda reaffirmed my research and changes that I want to make in my life. My biggest challenge is consistency. But I recently discovered the wonderful world of dot journaling. It’s like the heavens opened and my brain fog has lifted. I have had my journal for 24 hours and I have written 27 pages! That is right, 27 pages.

But to get back to the reason why I even brought up dot journaling, I now have a handy dandy fun way to keep track of my habits. For accountability, I will post my results here. Habits I plan on keeping track of

  1. Meditation
  2. Sleep
  3. Eating – following a keto/whole30 diet.
  4. Drinking my grassfed protein drinks
  5. Getting out into Nature
  6. Moving my body on a daily basis – even if I just take 10 minutes to stretch.
  7. other habits that I will discuss at a later date.

Hypothesis: Doing these habits will make me more productive, content, curious, energized, a better parent and my body will feel stronger and less bloated.

Data: Started collecting on Nov. 1, 2017. Not a bad start 🙂

Conclusion: Check back on Dec. 1, 2017.
