2016 Inventory of Time

Habits / Patterns:  

  • Met for coffee with lots of different people (gave lots of time to friends, catching up)
  • Much more self-care investment (spa days, yoga, dance, tea, doctors appts, health)
  • I tended to schedule too many events that came too close to an expedition — need space after a trip or big engagement to recover. 
  • More intentional family time (potluck dinners, meeting with Kai, dinner with Di, etc)
  • Better calendaring system to plan for the space time of things that I are important to me (finances, health, artist date, business development, writing)
  • Artist Dates to visit museums, work from SF MOMA and Cal Academy
  • More immersions of intensity, followed by moments of integration, slowness, wellness
