Sunday Reclamation

So I spend every Sunday from April through August at least somewhat focused on baseball, and I spend every Sunday from September through January totally focused on football. So I have two free months in there with no Sunday plans. And due to the hockey insanity, I have two months without a single sporting event that I care about. Therefore, with this newfound free time and because of my rising stress levels, I am hereby declaring a Sunday reclamation project.

Starting with this Sunday, and going every Sunday through March, except for Super Bowl Sunday and JITW weekend, I will:

  • Wake up in my own house
  • Spend an hour cleaning, which includes at least 30 minutes of physical cleaning (room, basement, shoveling snow) and at least 15 minutes of digital cleaning (ReplayTV shows, inbox, computer backups)
  • Spend an hour watching TV
  • Do a load of laundry
  • Try to exercise
  • Eat a freshly-cooked or leftover dinner, not a frozen one or takeout
  • Sleep 8.5 to 9 hours between midnight and midnight, with any naps counting double, and under no circumstances being in bed later than 11:15pm Sunday
  • Read 20 pages of a book, if I haven't yet that weekend
  • Not worry at all, even a little, if I fail to meet any of these goals (especially the exercise one)

If I stick to this even sometimes, I have a feeling it will lead to a vast life improvement. Especially in the monday portion of life. We'll see how it goes.
