Challenge 33: Nourish

Nourishing Mind, Body and Soul

Classwork (this is in bold because it's a focus point for the challenge, a point where when things get into conflict -- and they always do at some point, because that's life for you -- I can touch back to what is central) 
I'm enrolled in an independent study and an online class this term. At this point, I only have the papers left, but that's a huge piece (in the case of the independent study, it's the only piece.)
  • Posting on Tuesday for the Comparative Urbanism Class
  • Paper 1 for Comparative Urbanism
  • Paper 2 for Comparative Urbanism
  • Paper for Identity, Politics and Power in the 20th Century 

    Nightly sleep 
    I need to take care of myself by making certain I'm getting enough rest. If I'm worn out and exhausted, I can't be a good student / parent / friend. I need to be in bed no later than 9 p.m. I am hoping the meditation routine will dovetail with this.
    Nightly Floss Routine - this only takes seconds, so it's not as though it is really hard or anything. I have floss and coconut oil  for oil pulling next to the toothpaste now, so it's kind of inevitable.

    Financial Planning with the attorney
    Financial worry is soul-crushing. I recently read a report on the effects of poverty sapping nearly an entire standard deviation from a person's intelligence, and I can completely believe that. The mental peace that will come from financial clarity is huge.
    Also, a weekly budget meeting with my partner -- Sunday
