How to Survive the Apocolypse or Everyday…

  • Partner for the Villa project decided they wanted to pursue a different direction that made more sense for them — so I put it on hold.
  • Suddenly my dad had a heart attack which meant the first flight home to Canada to be with my family to help out. Thankfully surgery, recovery, etc. has been incredibly smooth hence very grateful.
  • Decided to begin job hunting on the East coast to be closer to home and now we are on the cusp of the next long term debt cycle recession with the COVID pandemic.

SURVIVAL KIT

DAILY HABITS BUILDING — Using this great daily habit tracker from https://www.coach.me/ to remind myself of habits I am trying to build.

  • Learning SPANISH continues with daily Duolingo sessions plus audio tapes / watching Narcos Mexico subbed + Hola Amigos who wants to join?
  • On Fitbit Challenge board with my family (10K Steps a day for me) — lets us push each other / do it together! GET OUTSIDE GO FOR A WALK
  • Tracking daily HeartRate health range with phone app https://www.hrv4training.com/ — takes in different things like your sleep, lifestyle, etc. to help you see if you are in a range for training or need rest.
  • Doing Runtastic Push Up App — It’s basic but keeps me doing some strength stuff (end of life… need a replacement??)
  • Think of any other ideas let me know? Maybe learn a dance routine Jesse Nunn?
  • The 5 Minute Journal app on my phone is one of my favorites! 3 things I am grateful, 3 things I want to focus on, and end of day 3 amazing highlights. It’s private and I look at it to remind myself life is blessed. Silver lining of being home has been spending more time with friends and family! Plus getting quarantined with someone who likes the same movies / anime as you isn’t bad either ;)
  • 1SEC Video app to capture 1 sec everyday for a year — It’s been a good way to capture small moments as we forget how many ppl we cross paths with and much we do in a year.

  • Try to catch up with 1 person a day Facetime / WhatsApp — Nicole Horak reminded me of the on plane thought exercise when we were chatting if this is it… is there anything left unsaid? Make sure you let your loved ones know how you feel, don’t be shy, and now is the time to repair / make peace (Crucial Conversations highly recommend reading).
  • Watch a friend live stream their isolation St. Paddy’s drinking thanks Noel Liu
  • Playing around on the DJ mixer — music feeds the soul — My fav chill playlist right now — LoFi Hiphop — https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0vvXsWCC9xrXsKd4FyS8kM?si=XM3hSgeYToSKWcKKVY24kg
  • Trying to connect / support others in your tribe — COME DANCE w me in your PJs Sat! — https://www.daybreaker.com/event/daybreaker-live/Danc
