A New Week Begins

Looking for Tools- Can Franklin Covey Help?

This weekend was a struggle for me. I was actually pretty ill on Friday- don't know what the heck I ate, but it didn't agree with me. I got about 4 hours of sleep that night. Reminded me of the old days of bingeing and getting sick as a dog.   I spent part of Sunday trying to get myself into the right emotional frame of mind for the week.  Being prepared is a big help in general- not just having raw foods on hand, but being organized for the week's duties. If I am disorganized mentally, it's easy to let other areas get chaotic as well.  I've used the Franklin Covey "Seven Habits for Highly Successful People" in the past  so I used it as an exercise to get back on track for the week. I chose 7 roles that I play in life (student, sociologist, daughter...) and then the "big rocks" (most important tasks) I need to do for each role, such as get through 17 readings for classes, make an effort to meet with certain people at my new job, email my mom, etc.  There are four areas that you are supposed to cover for each role, if I understand it properly: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.  I know that being physically healthy is important for me to be able to concentrate on my work and studies, so I listed that as a goal for the week: a trip to the gym.  I also listed that I will meditate and try to take walks.  My heart isn't totally into things, but at least I am thinking in the right direction. My car is packed with gym gear so I'm ready to go if I decide I want to.

I looked up local Buddhist sanghas and events and found something that seems interesting. It is Zen, which I am not particlarly into, but I might give them a visit. I certainly need something right now! I am being very antisocial these days. I passed up two parties this weekend and pretty much wallowed in pity in the house instead.  What a waste of time! I'll get out of this funk eventually, but I'd like to do it before I gain 80 lbs.
