Day 8

(you can listen while reading if you want)

After yesterday, I tried to focus more on certain virtues like silence and moderation. Since I had such a busy day yesterday, I thought those would be most beneficial. Honestly, I would say none of my other virtues for today have achieved above a 2/5, and I am okay with it. I think that by really focusing on moderation and silence today, I will have a more positive outcome.

  • Silence:5: By getting homework out of the way early, I believe that I will be able to have some time later to myself. This week has already been so busy with school, soccer, and basketball, so I am really looking forward to a little time to relax.
  • Moderation:3: Today has not been my best day for moderation, but it has definitely been an improvement from yesterday. I am hoping that by getting my homework out of the way, tryouts out of the way, and completing my ACT tutoring, I will hopefully have time later tonight to enjoy with my family.

I hope everyone has a great rest of their week!

  1. It’s a really good idea to focus on specific virtues each day to really hone in on them — I might just steal that tactic from you. Sorry about your busy schedule and I hope that you’ll have some relaxation time this upcoming break. Good luck with tryouts!

  2. I love the idea of including music to listen to while reading, that’s a really clever idea. I also think it’s okay to neglect some virtues in favor of pursuing and improving at other ones. Congrats on having a successful day with silence and good luck on moderation!

  3. I totally agree that this week has been absolutely insane, and I’m also looking forward to relaxing! Good job for doing so well with silence and moderation, that’s amazing. I hope you were able to get all of your homework done so you can hangout with your fam 🙂

  4. I love that you included music in your post! Also, I think it’s a great strategy to work on specific virtues every day as that’s what I have been doing too. I hope you were able to find some time to relax, and good luck with tryouts!

  5. I love this song and it is an immediate serotonin boost, not kidding. I like that you worked on specific virtues today because I think sometimes thinking about all five makes it hard, and maybe even won’t provide as big of a benefit. You are stud with all your work and sports, keep it up 🙂
