"Be curious. Find out about three new topics or ideas."
That's a tall order!
I had a letter today from the NHS about blood donation; I've signed up to give blood on 22nd November, for the first time. I had no idea there were so many contra-indications to giving blood. This is definitely a new topic for me.
I've been learning about 'mind weeds' which are thoughts that try to stop you doing what you want to do to achieve a goal - like dieting, exercising, or anything else that would be good for you, but which take some effort and are therefore easily defeated by negative thoughts. I now have a daily question to ask myself in the morning "Am I going to observe my mind weeds today?"
I watched a video about "Uplift" - an upward-moving spiral powered by magnets and solar energy.
Apparently he's working on Uplift-2 which is made from recycled fishing nets.
