Spend a day acting more confident than you usually are.

At work this morning, I decided to confront a new individual, who has been very unprofessional, and also had been speaking behind my back. The problem for that individual is that I earnt a lot of respect with my workers, so everything they said came straight back to me. But, rather than simply have a slagging match, I took them to one side, and mentioned I had got mental illness problems, as they already knew, but then listed off a number of my achievements, pointed out how close colleagues are to me, and subtly gave an example (they did not know how to use the word "pedantic" properly), and reminded them that we are professionals dealing with vulnerable people, so keep it professional. I have never seen someone become such a shrinking violet before my eyes before, but after that she appeared very subservient and careful, and the usual negative demeanour had changed to a factual, mousey and more agreeable version. Either it got through, or it was being faked, I don't know. But she definitely knows where I stand, and where everyone stands. If done right, confronting the bully is the best way of taking them down.

Floss your teeth every day for a week.

This morning, I made seven days of flossing. Thanks to this achievement, I actually remembered to do so. Pleased to say no bleeding gums either, so I guess my dental hygiene is doing okay.

Spend the day with friends or family.

Today, some friends and I had a great venting day, and had a lot of laughs. We've all had some tough times, so it was really good to just have a laugh together and show a united front. It actually was quite an emotional day, behind the laughs. Like true bonding, which was really nice! After making a call and getting back inside, I was then ganged up on and was made to wear E's extensions, with S. adding hers. I have to say, I don't know how they walk around without their necks being squashed! Kudos to them! Great day! :)

Play a game with friends.

Yesterday, we actually played a few! Darts, cards and … and yes, this is very infantile … tag! At the park and at a friend's house. I doubt it's the midlife crisis just yet, but normally I thought that comes with sports cars and medallions, not playground activities! Maybe I build up from there? Anywhizz, I'm apparently very good at tag. Not that that's gonna help me in later life. My darts is decent, and cards pretty good too. Now, when can I start exercising properly again?

Spend some time in a local park or beach.

This afternoon I went with a couple of friends to a park in Welwyn. I cannot remember the name, but I like to think it may have been called Shanborough. It was a lovely afternoon, so it was a shame to waste it. Very busy though! I thought I'd try to take some nice pics of the scenery, but my friends kept photobombing it! I gave up after a while. I had a nice paddle though, although my wife is currently telling me about a story where our nephew went for a paddle, and ended up walking into human excrement. Maybe I need a more thorough wash (although it appeared clean to me!).

Call a friend or relative just to chat for a bit.

This morning, I had a chat with dad for a catch up, and update him on my health. He's not the most emotional of people, but he was genuinely caring, which was nice to feel. Our chats are usually full of deadpan humour and efficiency. Rather an odd way to chat, when I think about it, but still it's nice to know he cares.

Win a game of chess.

It took a couple of days overall, but this morning I pulled off a victory against Chromesthesia, although she had the upper hand for most of the battle. It was really a devastating fork on me that wasn't followed through which saved me, so there was luck involved. But it was a great game, and I am definitely enjoying the more aggressive approach by my opponent. Keep at it! :)

Drink eight glasses of water in one day.

I did it finally today! From 03:45 this morning until the afternoon, I was drinking water steadily and finally actually bothered to focus on this. Really, I need to be having a lot more liquids, so really glad I'm starting on a healthier path now! So, best follow this up with a Sundae for two for me, as this makes perfect sense (so worth it though!). Well, my wife helped a little. Probably shocked her, what with my possessiveness of food!

Spend some time outdoors.

Most of today I've been outside! Firstly, my wife and I took a trip to Bickerdikes, which is a small but rather lovely garden centre near Baldock, and then when we travelled back home we had a few Fuchsias (pronounced Fu-shia, not F**k Sia) and some plants we have no idea what they are to plant up. Whilst I'm always eager, my wife does think it's also a struggle with my help, and it was proven as I think I coated her with half the compost I was using. She greatly appreciated that! Anyway, all flowers are now planted and now finally for some indoor time, where it's shaded.

Go to bed super early.

In order to help with my mental health, it was recommended to me to go to bed much earlier than I have been (I tend to go to sleep at 02:00) and get up earlier, so last night my wife and I both went to bed at 22:30 last night, which is really early for me!
Fortunately, I was tired since I'm also trying to stop napping during the day, but last night my sleep clock must've followed the sun, since I woke up at 03:45 as it was rising! Took ten minutes timeout and went back to bed, but I was wide awake. After falling asleep and waking up at 07:30 I am actually more tired than I was. I know the body is making sense, but I wish it makes more sense to me.

Read at least one chapter of a book.

Around lunch time, whilst waiting for my wife to get ready to go out this afternoon, I realised I have neglected "The Stonehenge Legacy", so decided to delve back into it again. It's amazing how non-phased a cult can be, when it dawns on them they've abducted the daughter of an actress and the Vice President of the United States. Maybe the elders shall protect them? Maybe they have no grasp upon reality? I do like the fact that, despite the status of the victim, it's only the local constabulary searching for her. She was a somewhat annoying character anyway.

Study or research something.

Spent the day studying mental health at the main regional offices, in the hope of garnering more information. Sadly, it didn't really fulfil my expectations, nor add anything different. There was one section where we were put in groups of threes, where two people went out and the other had to wait until they get back in, not knowing what was going to happen. Except I guessed correctly, and when my team arrived back I said "So, who's the good cop and who's the bad?". I ended up telling them how to do it better :D.
On a more serious note, I have never known a tutor to talk about confidentiality, and then breach it within minutes! Reported that crap. Should never have happened.

Clean up your email inbox or social media profile.

Spent a bit of time doing some much needed cleaning up of my emails this morning, because it was such a mess! Even important emails were jumbled up with crappy or spam emails. I've created separate folders, and completely cleaned out the main hub. As much as it will still get messy again in the next few days, I'll try to keep on top of it a bit more.

Watch a documentary.

At home, chilling with my wife this evening, we watched "Trust Me, I'm A Doctor", since we really need to watch some of the things we've recorded! This had some interesting info, including eating more carbs in the evening than morning is better for you; a surprising medicine for Raynaud's Syndrome (only if extreme) is Viagra; balancing the eating cycle is the main way of dealing with jet lag; and a revolutionary magnetic implement that will help doctors remove cancerous tumours in their early stages, whilst reducing the amount of healthy tissue removed. Informative, as always.

Do something you find relaxing.

This afternoon, I decided to do a bit more of engraving art. It's a beginner's piece, but it takes time and especially for someone who hasn't done this before, it's as much a practice of patience and mindfulness, as well as trying out art. Doing art such as this or colouring is pretty therapeutic. I'm more use to doing art involving words, but it's certainly a lot of fun. I think it's going alright so far.

Complete some household chores or cleaning.

I've had a sudden productive spurt today. As well as completing the early shift at work, I've also cleaned the sides, swept the floors, washed the car (although, according to my wife, not very well), polished and swept the back yard. Not to mention I seemed to be in a rather productive mood today. I do feel tired still, but now the worst is out of the way, I think I can settle down for the afternoon.

Watch an instructional video tutorial.

This morning, I spent a bit of time on the laptop to take my mind off the hay fever. Although I mostly watch game-related content, I do dabble in other videos, and saw a link to psychology and how to read people. I know a fair bit about this already, but I could always use more. There were some interesting bits, including how to get people involved in doing what you may need them to do, how to understand certain body and audio languages, and even how to win at rock, paper and scissors.

Add to your collection of favourite recipes.

My wife and I are always looking for new recipes we will never use, so whilst trawling through Ely today, we came across this interesting take on a burger and salsa dish. We do ultimately intend on making these dishes, but then life gets in the way, and cooking isn't high up on our agendas (although it really ought to be!0. So, this card will inevitably be put into the folder with other delicious and unused recipes, until we get our s**t together and realise just how many amazing treats we can create. In the meantime, tea and scones for dinner tonight!

Take some photos of interesting architecture.

My wife and I took a much needed (and deserved) break to Ely for the day. It was a good day out, although I think our work is catching up with us both, as we were both completely pooped by the end of it. Yes, I need exercise too, but still!
This is Ely Cathedral. The present building dates back to 1083, although it's origins are further back during AD 672, when St. Etheldreda built an abbey church on this spot.

Wake up to your alarm clock without hitting snooze.

:he alarm woke me at 07:15 this morning, as I needed to go to the doctors this morning for a couple of checks. My wife offered to go, but thought she may prefer a lie-in. Anyway, one bit's in the clear, and the other for further checks, but not worrying about it.

Read or watch the news.

This afternoon in the House of Commons, a Bill was to be passed to make the act of "up-skirting" a criminal offence (taking photos up women's skirts without consent). What should have been a no-brainer vote to authorise it was vetoed by an MP Christopher Chope.
This individual has been responsible for blocking numerous Bills that would have been beneficial, such as various Bills to improve LGBT rights; animal rights and basically anything which would better humanity. Considering, after he objected, there were cries of "Shame" from both male and female MPs shows his unpopularity. I am so hoping he has committed political suicide.
Fortunately, this Bill gets a second chance on a Friday session. Any chauffeur or taxi driver taking him there - should they decide to take a longer detour to accidentally make him miss that vote - should probably be considered for knighthood. Christopher Chope - a disgusting excuse for an MP and human being.

Do something that makes someone else really happy.

Today, a friend of mine has been through a really tough time, so when we were chatting today, we spoke about attending a wrestling event together, and he was really happy I said I would be delighted to go. He's struggling at the moment, but we went to his allotments and did some work, chatted about his problems and he said he felt so much better than he had done at the start of today. It's really lovely to feel you can make a difference to someone over just a few, small gestures, and spending time with them.

Wake up to your alarm clock without hitting snooze.

I woke up this morning at about 06:45 to my alarm, because of a day at work at a different site, so a bit more travelling to be done. Didn't wake the wife up, which was a bonus this time (my choice of "Killer Instincts" theme tune isn't the most subtle of alarms), but maybe I still should have gone to bed earlier the night before. It caught up with me pretty quickly today.

Spend some time in a local park or beach.

A bit cloudier than I thought it was going to be today, but as part of work we travelled to the Botanic Gardens in Cambridge for the day. There are plants from nearly every part of the globe, and especially nice was the greenhouses with rare plants from the Himalayas, the tropics and deserts. The Botanic Café there also has some lovely food! It was a great day out, but then again it is Cambridge, so it's always a good day out for me!

Offer help to someone who could use it.

There was a workshop I needed to attend this afternoon, where one of my colleagues was also going to, so I offered to take them there and back. She was also having a bit of a bad time as of late, so just offered my assistance if she needed and also offered to take her back home. There's a good game to play in the car of trying to come up with the stupidest or crudest sentences, using the letters on the registration plate as the first letter of each word. Way much more fun than it should be! She was laughing a lot, so I am guessing at least her day was made better. Being a clown can have it's advantages.
