Project H&H

I’m burnt out, I’m stressed out and my body is telling me I’m not healthy or happy. There’s just so much family, friends, colleagues, doctors can do; but at the end of the day, it’s your own responsibility to make yourself healthy and happy. In the spirit of #happy100 which I had done a year back. Keep yourself healthy and happy is a long time battle. To me, a bit of struggle at the moment. Sometimes, you need to actively remind yourself to be healthy and be happy.

I’m stressed and tried on weekdays and drawn my sorrows by partying. I ended up being drunk and hungover and feel horrible on weekend and insomnia on Sundays. It’s a total downward spiral.

Reality check on my physical and emotional healthiness:

Physically:

  • Constantly fatigue
  • Constant migraine, especially in the afternoon. It gets worse when I’m angry or upset (Chinese doctor said it’s related to my liver. The more frustrated I get, the worse the pain gets)
  • Insomnia (It was only Sunday night before and occasionally on week days. I had been on sleeping pills for 2 weeks to get a slightly more decent night of sleep)
  • Feeling numb on my left face sometimes
  • My hands shakes sometimes specially when hungover
  • Regular stomachache, sometimes it gets really bad
  • Digestive problem (I don’t put on weight simply because my body is not really absorbing)
  • Loss of hair (like a lot)
  • Dry Hair (no matter how expensive treatment I put on)
  • Stiff shoulders
  • Constant neck tiredness and pain
  • Non regular heart rate sometimes

Emotional:

  • Burnt out
  • Easily upset
  • Easily frustrated
  • Hard to control my anger
  • Miner depression
  • Forgetful
  • Stressed
  • Loss of memories
  • Constant nightmare (waking up in the middle of the night completely scared)

The list goes on and on…

I’ll start this project and document it all on my blog. Here’s what I’m going to:

  • Do at least 1 thing to make myself happy
  • Do at least `1 thing to make myself healthy
  • Try not to do anything that harms my physical or emotional health
  • Always end the day with a positive thought
  • Keep a notebook next to my bed to write down any idea I would have or things I need to do the next day
  • Control my food intake (avoid food that causes me trouble, eg. spicy food)
  • Control my alcohol intake (no more than 2 a day)

I’ll put the first 90 days at the first milestone and reflect if . Good luck to me!
