Weekly experiments

🌱 Seedling2 min read

This page is to track different weekly experiments I'm doing. These could be considered trial runs for habits to see whether they're things I truly want to do or not. This is inspired by a few different sources:

I have a backlog of potential experiments here.

Week 25, 2022 - Journal every day at the same time

Goal: At 10pm every day I'll write a journal entry. Hypothesis: I've journalled on and off in the past and always found it a useful and thoughtful exercise. I think a lot of value is unlocked by it becoming a habit though, so I'd like to try it out and see how it feels. The timing is important I feel, but I could be wrong. I've been quite interested in the concept of journalling since watching this interview with the musician Scanner where he talks about having journalled every day for the last 30 or 40 years. Outcome: In progress

Week 24, 2022 - Cold showers

Goal: Only have cold/lukewarm showers Hypothesis: I get really dry skin these days and dropping hot showers is often recommended as a fix to this. So hopefully after a week I notice my skin is less dry Outcome: I stuck to this all week, though I think they'd probably be classified more as lukewarm showers. It went fine though, and I think I'm going to continue doing it but maybe lower the temperature a bit every day. The real test will come when I head back to Australia in a few weeks and try it in a colder climate!
