Liban woke up and spent 25 minutes listening to comedy and re-listening to his old podcasts. He did not desire to do this: he did not stop it . He learned, to re-listen to them & write shorter notes about them. Failure to focus though is a challenge that he will deal with today.
Liban spent the next 6:30-9:30 am, three hours, preparing himself for the day, preparing presentations and delivering it. The presentation took about 2 hours. There was a period where he was lost. During his presentation, he was emotional, getting close to crying.
1048,Liban is lying down while working on computer on a desk for bed; Liban was getting sleepy due to his association with the bed and sleep. He took 17 minutes of nap; he still wants more. He will not do it. He will compete 25 minutes of work remaining from 52 minutes of work.
Liban has finished the first session editing old work. He was feeling restless. He now feels better. He used HRV measuring device : inhaled five seconds and exhaled five seconds. He feels better now, even though he is still feeling anxious. He will meditate more.
1129-1245, majority of this time, Liban browsed the Internet, studying anti-corruption committee of Kenya works; he knew he was supposed to stop but he did not. He kept going.
1341, Liban is glad to report that he focused the second session; he enjoyed resisting temptations to get distracted; he enjoyed the discomfort that he had experienced.
1341-1530, Liban spent about 2 hours spending with his family; apparently, that was not enough and more time is needed, adding another 1.5 hours after 30 minutes. In the mean time, Liban was editing old works and re-started enjoying discomfort. Now, 1648

During this period, Liban started editing yesterday’s work. He wants to make this a routine, editing yesterday’s work. He also desires to journal about security and politics, also edit the work next day, thereby building materials to be edited twice before publishing.
Liban exercised and edited materials during this period. He will start preparations for the day and present short religious presentation in multiple languages, also to be edited next day before passing two more editing for final publications.
Liban’s mood is not great m, titling towards morose. He wants to be thriving again, and he not doing that yesterday, suggesting lying back on bed for a longer period is not conducive to thriving. He wants to thrive, so be it. He will do tai chi, prayers and meditations

Liban has not been taking breaks. Liban dreamed last night of visiting his hometown, Mogadishu; the city did not know each other, some parts developed and others are in Stone Age. He was arrested by Ethiopian officer close to Villa Somalia, after he was walking around the area.
He called people for help, calling the name of his clan; non came; people minded their business. Liban asked the officer why he arrested him and he simply suggested that he has the power to do so. After long argument, the officer decided to leave Liban alone. Liban left.
0839, Liban feels changed by optimal breathing method that he had been using; he plans to use it more; he slept 8 hours, exercised on time and feels great. It seems finally he has managed to form productive routines and maintain them.

Liban now is preparing presentations; his focus was poor; he will work hard next session to focus better and get the work done.
