Challenge 36: Open Challenge

This week I'm going to try something new. It's an open challenge so the idea is if you have something you need to do or want to set your own individual challenge you can post it and see if anyone else want to take it up. You can give yourself some motivation to complete something and also maybe inspire somebody else to join you. Example "I'm going to go for a run" or "I'm going to read a book". If I can I will try to complete some.

I have some gardening I need to do so this will be what I will be doing

I'm going to try not throw my toys out my pram and get through this week's 2 shifts without insulting a manager or quitting. Channel my inner reasonable adult. Only a summer job. 1/3 through season already, got super frustrated and on edge last week. Gotta try hold it together this week. No need to get myself annoyed when is a simple zero responsibility, min wage, zero brain power job. But I do. And then I spiral.

Yea I have trouble not letting my job getting to me, I get told something that is not my responsibility or within my control and I still spend ages obsessing over it. I generally try to get over it by just doing the best I can, like if I have a task just try and do it to the best of my abilty then try and take solace in that.

Hopefully this can give you the motivation to get this done. I find this difficult too but I do find I am relieved once I've sent them and it clears my head a little

Happy to report successful 2 shifts at work and a successful half overtime shift too! Helped that my manager assigned me an area to work on all the shifts that I'm much more comfortable in where last week I was in the one I really struggle and get frustrated with. Switch to my 2nd (more friendly) job now for a few days!

How's everyone else getting on?

That's good to hear, hopefully your manager will see where you are most comfortable and assign you there in the future

I managed to do a bit of gardening but weather has been pretty bad, lots of rain, that and I have been playing on the computer too much

Challenge 37: Brush your teeth

Ok so this is something that we all do generally, I think, and know how to do. I see a lot of people struggling to keep up with good oral hygiene however. This might be a good oppurtunity to reflect upon what we are doing and if we can improve/motivate ourselves to look after our teeth. Maybe you could look at your routine, are you flossing, are you taking care after meals? Do you have any tips to share that might help someone else?

My personal tip I heard is to brush your teeth for the duration of a song. Also I would say don't brush too hard, I did this for a while and it was really making my gums sore and It first I thought it was just my diet but it was actually brushing too hard

Yes! This is needed for me, thanks. I often forget and/or am lazy so don't brush teeth. Better recently than I have been as I have used a tip I read from someone on here about brushing teeth first thing on waking up. And I have had more of a routine for a couple of months with summer job(s) that are customer facing - also meaning the need to be more presentable.

Bought myself some floss about 3 weeks ago but it is still in the packaging. Tomorrow I will open the floss then my personal challenge for the week will be keep up the brushing regularity (min once a day) but aim to remember to add daily flossing and also mouthwashing (something I rarely do, but do have 'in stock'). Time to increase/improve habits.

Yea I think having a routine, if you can, is very important then everything becomes second nature. Pretty much first thing I do every morning is brush my teeth. A good idea might be to try and combine flossing into you daily routine.

Challenge 38: Give yourself a compliment

So this could be either really easy or really hard depending on whether you can do this sort of thing. We already did give somebody else a compliment but how about we try to compliment ourselves or say something good or something we like about ourselves. I think a good idea would be to tag ourselves so it give the sort of impression we are look into a mirror and telling oneself.

Example

@carac you are responsible and try to be very conscientious to keep to time and put others first.

I don't know how I could ever compliment myself if I fail everything. I failed last weeks challenge, too. ;-;

Maybe I should compliment myself for failing, sorry I don't wanna sound negative but it is how it is. ;-;

I think this challenge can be a very tough one, I know I found it a very difficult thing to do for what on the surface seems very simple and straightforward
