Lent is around the corner and I’ve been thinking about what to commit to dropping or adding to my daily routine for 40 days. In the past I’ve been off chocolate, sweets (this was a toughie), contacting or initiating interaction with guys and negative thoughts. I have a few ideas for this year:
– Commit to working out at the gym 3 times a weeks with no exception. Yoga once a week, for a total of 4 days of exercise.
– Play/practice the guitar every day for 30 mins.
– Diet, or drop some type of food.
But these are all things I need to do, not necessarily something I enjoy and will give up in order to help purify myself and gain more self-discipline. Does adding something count too? I guess if it implies a sacrifice, self-discipline, a challenge and it’s something that is not easily accomplish, then it should count right?
Weigh in. What do you think I should give up or take on for Lent? Any ideas?
