I have an unusual way to track my time. Some of you might think this is fun. I hope this makes sense. I’m better with pictures than with words.

I like to draw pictures and I read for pleasure.

Also, this isn’t totally my original idea. Several years ago there was a readathon on YouTube called 25 in 5, where we tried to read for 25 hours in 5 days. They suggested doing an hour on your stop watch or kitchen timer, then making a hash mark in your notebook.

I tried that and got real tired of looking at hash marks😁

So here is what I do. Say your gaol is 20 minutes of movement in a day. Draw yourself a coloring book page with 20 fields to color in it. Example: draw a flower with a center and 4 petals. That’s 5 fields of color. Draw 4 flowers and that’s 20 fields to color. Then do a minute of movement on your stopwatch and you can color one field. Your bouquet of flowers won’t be finished until you’ve finished 20 minutes of movement.
