Busy my Autumn!
October 8, 2008 7:48 AM Subscribe
So I just broke up with somebody I've been dating for several years. For the next few months I want to keep busy, improve my health, and do some things with my spare time. I'm thinking nanowrimo
in November, and maybe something like the 100 pushup challenge
. I'm cycling to work. What other daily self-improvement-y 'lifehacks' will make me healthy, happy and wise as I get over the bump?

I assume I'll get some responses like "You can't avoid thinking about/working through this breakup, and it isn't healthy to do so" or "stop avoiding the difficult parts of your life!" I completely agree with that sentiment, and thanks for them. But it takes me a long time to drift into sleep in the evenings, so I've pretty much got a half-hour every day set aside where I can't think about much else.
I'm looking for projects and things that can be done cheaply and slot easily into a day - the press ups example being a prime example of 'takes-up-ten-minutes a day and has tangible improvement'.
Help me fix myself up as I'm sorting myself out.
