I have been reading key studies and working on a section to define a concept. Maybe I am struggling a bit with it, how to structure different definitions of one concept proposed by different authors, and eventually how to logically link discussions to a conceptual framework.
The most striking thing for me is how different each author’s description of the definition is from the others, and how complicated it is to define a concept. I spent long hours consulting some methodological books and making an online search. My progress was quite slow this week, so I am working on it over the weekend.
Since I started cooking meals every day and enjoying weekend baking in May, my stress levels have been reduced dramatically. Spending a little time cooking for relaxation makes me feel better and less stressed.
Also, I have noticed that once I have taken the first healthy habit, other good habits have grown automatically: I started measuring my body weight and basal body temperature every morning, doing yoga by watching yoga videos at home, and Luca and I just signed up for gym yesterday.
Here’s a list of my healthy daily habits:
- Keep a health diary: weight, basal temperature, mood, etc.
- Make a smoothie for our breakfast
- Clean the house for 30 minutes
- Drink water frequently
- Cook meals
- Eat a lot of vegetables and fruit
- Do yoga at night for 20 minutes
- Sleep for eight hours if possible
Of these eight items, I did only three last year. Most of them I started doing just two months ago, and they have become indispensable.
My achievements in Week 79
- read key studies and literature and worked on setting an analytical framework
Goals for Week 80
- finish the section defining a concept
- transcribe data
