Personal Challenge January 2014: Drink Only WaterPosted: January 3, 2014
I didn’t do a “2014 Resolutions” post, but I do have two overarching goals:
- Ride 50 Miles
- Get Thirteenth Orbit ready to submit
Alongside those I want to do some smaller, focused challenges. I don’t know if this will be every month or sprinkled throughout the year, but it’s a way to motivate myself to try and develop some new habits.
This month my goal is to drink only water for the entire month, starting today. I’ve been drinking too much alcohol, and while tea and the occasional sparkling juice concoction aren’t bad for me, I think this will be a nice chance to work on my personal Stoicism. Roman Stoicism in particular is about being able to derive satisfaction from very simple things, like fresh water, bread, rice, etc. So this is both a personal health as well as a mental well-being exercise.
Comment below if you’re interested in joining in! At the end of the month, I’ll let you know how I do 🙂
