Just finished the chapter where a day in the life of both Grok, and Korg are described. Made me think about MY typical day, what is primal, what is not:
Sabine wakes up before the sun rises-, but without the use of an alarm+. She feels rested+, and it is easy to wake up+. She often shares some fun time with her Honey+, and gets out of bed in a good mood for the day+. There is a quiet hour+ before she has to start waking her children, so she sips water and tea+, and does her computer things-.
Then there is the morning bustle of getting kids to school-. She usually gets to chat with Middlest on the way+. Littlest is NOT a morning person, so their interactions are minimal-. She no longer eats a breakfast, instead waiting until she feels hungry+. She has also stopped insisting that the kids eat breakfast+, though she does make sure they have two kinds of protein in their lunch bags, one for lunch, and one for a morning snack if they want it++.
Most days she walks to the library, post office, or store+, but she does not get at least an hour every day-. She has gotten lazy about walking the dogs while her Honey was unemployed--. Bad for her AND the dogs.
She enjoys plenty of meat and vegetables++, and has added butter and coconut oil into her diet++, and DROPPED margarine+. She no longer eats grains as a regular thing+, but she still indulges sometimes-, and has a HARD time getting back on track when she does-.
She doesn't do any heavy lifting-, or sprinting-, but she's not stressed about it+. She used to take a sunbath every day+, but she completely forgot about it-. She means to start again+.
She doesn't take any medications+, and when she has symptoms of various ailments, she is able to fix herself with good food, rest, and/or plenty of liquids+. She worries about cancer, and heart ailments sometimes-, but feels empowered, knowing that eating right has made any symptoms(real or imagined) vanish within days+.
Modern cares stress her out sometimes, and she usually deals with them by eating- or reading+, but over all, she does not feel her life is stressful. She does not have to deal with traffic+ or unpleasant people+ on a regular basis, and she has plenty of friends she enjoys+. Her family life is secure+, and she and her Honey and kids like to play games together, which she considers great for teenagers+!
In the evening she relaxes with books+, crafts+, or movies-. She still hasn't gotten filters on her computer or lights-, although she thinks about it now and then. She goes to bed at about the same time every night+, except when she has socializing opportunities++.
Hmmm, not too shabby.
