April Schedule, Week 2

Here’s to hoping my second-week April schedule also helps me stay awake even as I dream, whether I’m heading into a 6-hour or 17-hour day.

Directions

Every day, you read 3 things, write 3 things, self-care 3 times, and participate in 1 community activity. You can also earn a mini award through GTFoutside activity.Going outside is part of your social anxiety treatment plan.

Each activity is worth 1 XP. Strike-through as you finish an activity. Calculate XP at the end of the week, then weekly subtotals at the end of the following month, after you’ve developed enough emotional distance to evaluate results and design improvements.
