On my nightstand: The Happiness ProjectPosted: February 11, 2013
I started a reading a new book on Saturday as part of the healthysELF challenge that I signed up for last week.
Basically it’s a continuation of the Elf for Health Holiday Challenge that took place over Christmas. And even though it’s an American based challenge with mostly American bloggers taking part, I realised there was nothing stopping me from jumping on the band wagon.
How it works, is that every Monday, Thursday and Saturday you get a challenge that focuses on one aspect of health and wellness. Unfortunately I didn’t get around to completing the challenge from last Thursday which was, “Do 100 burpees throughout the day“. I did manage to fit in a 1km swim though so hopefully that’ll count for something?
Saturday’s challenge, as I mentioned was, “Start reading a new book” and after seeing many reviews on The Happiness Project, I decided it needed further investigation. So far (I’m only on the 3rd chapter), I’ve found it to be rather thought-provoking and I really enjoy the light-hearted and relaxed style in which Gretchen Rubin writes. I’m looking forward to getting stuck into it but this week is turning out to be a busy one so leisure-time reading may be at a slight minimum. Oh well!
