In other news...

Spring has definitely sprung. Two trees in the neighbours' gardens are suddenly covered in blossom. Very pretty!

Also, I have a new motivational tool. jimhines did a round up of April Fool jokes and mentioned that his avatar on HabitRPG had turned into an eggplant. I think I had vaguely heard of HabitRPG before, but never got around to investigating. However, I am seriously lacking in get up and go this spring and have got into lethargic habits during the long, really dreary, really wet winter, so I wondered if it would help. I signed up and after spending 1 April as an onion, my avatar is now a little grey-haired warrior.

I've only been doing it for 2 days, but it's definitely working. I've achieved all my dailies today. Of course it's a novelty at the moment and once that novelty wears off, it might stop working as a source of motivation. But right now I'll take even short term motivations to get me going!

Current Mood: sleepy sleepy

I like the idea of getting gold and xp for good habits!

It's working so far, even though today I had an excellent excuse to miss a few dailies, I decided to do them and get the points. I'm really hoping that because it's quite a complex game, I won't get bored with it too quickly.

It works well with the Kaizen technique too. (That is, start doing tiny amounts at first and very gradually ramp it up to longer periods of hard work/exercise.) This is good because right now I'm trying to increase my useful activity and productivity without succumbing to Clean All The Things!!! syndrome and consequent burnout.

Thanks. I'd been seeing them on the crochet group and thought they were cute so was determined to make some of my own.
