I’ve started making a list at the beginning of the day of must-do items. These are the things that, should I finish them, I know I will feel I had a productive day. Yesterday I got a bit panicked at the end of the day, what with trying to figure out how to fit in 30 minutes of daily Hindi practice, a bike ride, making dinner and grocery shopping all after work. Sage and Daegan bailed me out, though, by going shopping together and then Daegan made dinner. But I can’t always count on them.
Today’s list also had 30 minutes of Hindi practice and a bike ride in it but today I did two things to avoid the afternoon panic:
- I started in the morning so it was done and out of the way early.
- I did a couple of my tasks at the same time.
Also: if you recognize the film, NO SPOILERS – I’m only 30 minutes in. I also already despise the dad.
And for my friends who don’t follow Hindi cinema as closely, here’s the trailer for the movie I’m watching in pieces as I exercise:
So far I’m really enjoy it but the relationship between the mom and dad and dad and daughter is really tough to watch. I knew it was going to be good, though. I’m a huge fan of Aamir Khan.
I’m glad I discovered this approach to exercise. Finding a good movie means I am motivated to get back on the bike to see what happens next. And choosing a Hindi movie means I get practice as well. I’m pretty happy with this arrangement.
