30 Day Mental Fast Revisited

The 30 Day Mental Fast RevisitedThe 30 Day Mental Fast Revisited

In December 2013, I first was challenged to take the 30 Day Mental Fast. I decided to revisit this exercise in excellence. What I realized was that my life turned to mush after I finished and did not keep up with the new habit I was developing. The Mental Fast consisted of the following:

  • Read 15 minutes/day
  • No TV
  • Listen to Personal Development Audio
  • No News Papers
  • Associate with positive people
  • Drink water & take Organo Gold Capsules
  • Exercise
  • Reflection Time

For me there No Newspapers was the easies to give up since I haven't read them in decades, which will not change. I find newspapers and the news on radio and TV to be depressing. No TV will be a challenge because I love Castle and Deadliest Catch. Plus, my wife likes the time we share in front of the TV. That's what DVR is for I can watch them later if I choose. Therefore, I'll only report if I deviate to watching TV.

Day 1:

Read 15 mins /Day: The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership: Follow Them and People Will Follow You (10th Anniversary Edition) by John C. Maxwell

No TV: No Problem.

Listen to PD Audio: I'm listenening to Podcasts on Personal Growth, Writing, and Podcasting at the moment:

No Newspapers: None, nada, nil.

Associate with positive people: Called my mentors and coaches just because I wanted to let them know this challenge was starting today.

Drank water & took my Organo Gold Capsules: If you want to find out more about the Organo Gold Capsules, go to WantMyCoffee.com or email me at dan@wantmycoffee.com.

Exercise: I went for a short walk. I messed up my knee and walking has been a challenge. So i've started with baby steps, literally!

Reflection Time: I took a half hour to review my Simple and Easy statements, which I'll cover in another post, and visualizing some of my other goals.
