I wrote out this entire post before, and then the computer crashed and I lost it all, so I haven't felt like working on it. Finally, I'm biting the bullet and starting over :

On maggie's musings

This is quite exciting! I did not plan on starting a blog today but I find the best things in life are those that you stumble upon when you are open. I found this site by way of zenhabits, which is amazing and also found by accident several months ago.

I basically love the philosophies that Tynan and Leo put forward. The idea that anyone can change, if they do it purposefully, and joyfully. Ever since I learned the flute as a young kid, I have understood that practice will create improvement--no matter what the starting point is.

It is a natural time to take stock: my fitness and work habits are fairly strong and I began keeping track of my spending earlier in the year (thanks to some tips from Leo and the book Your Money or Your Life) so I am not worried about that trajectory either. But I am concerned about my eating and sleeping habits. I also want to take more time to reflect, meditate and stretch. Finally, I want to be way more productive. I strongly believe that better organizational skills will create a lot more peace and less work in my life.

My concrete plans: Eat more fruit and veggies and feed my kids more fruit and veggies too (3 servings minimum). Sleep more (8 hours). Do yoga and a few minutes of meditation every morning (10 minutes).

As for the bigger-picture issues such as productivity/organization and reflection, I am not going to make a concrete plan at this moment. I have to save something for future blogs.
