Day 52 – Monkeying Around

I feel myself trying to find things to get upset about. My commitment to maintaining equanimity in my life is starting to take root, and my monkey mind is not happy about its new successor. But I’m keeping a close eye on it, so it hasn’t been able to stage any successful coups. Although I did start obsessing about carbs and sugar today. It actually got me pretty worked up mentally, and I found myself sighing all night long, but I think I’m over it. Tomorrow is a new day, and I can make better decisions then. What’s done is done.

Meditate. ✅
Did an equanimity meditation on MARC’s website while driving to work.

Exercise. ✅
I almost skipped this because I was set on doing a Daily Burn workout and my AirPlay wasn’t working. I really didn’t feel like going outside and jogging, but I made myself because I’m recommitted to exercising daily. I think a lot of my unused energy needs a way to escape, and if I don’t do it through physical activity, then it tries to get used up through my thoughts, and my monkey mind is just waiting with arms wide open.

Do not go out to drink. ✅

Do not eat garbage (fast) food. ✅
