Updates Versus Radio Silence: How Not To Die

Updates Versus Radio Silence: How Not To Die

Posted on March 31, 2020 11:33 am

Just before the Covid-19 realities forced everyone to stay-at-home, I was having tea with one of RentHop’s long-time angel investors. Fortunately, for us, we don’t have real board meetings, so I try to do individual syncs as often as possible. It’s one of the key hacks in How Not To Die, to force yourself to give regular updates. That way, you commit beforehand to having everyone assume radio silence is failure.

Required Weight Loss Update

Speaking of forced updates, we are almost at the first checkpoint of my Weight Loss hack. How’s that going? So far so good. When we were still going to the Grand Central Tech office, my daily lunch consisted of two feet of Subway Sandwiches, sans the bread.

Steak and Cheese or Oven Roasted Chicken Breast from subway, without the bread, is under 400 calories per foot long, even with veggies and cheese (red wine vinegar sauce)

Cruise Goal Approaching

The original first deadline was a late April cruise from Long Beach, California to Mexico, aboard the Carnival Panorama. Unfortunately, it seems highly unlikely we will be sailing next month. As we speak. cruise ships are being turned away at ports for fear the spreading the virus.

The original Diamond Princess is considered Patient 0 to 300 for one of the largest Japan clusters. The Grand Princess is the California ship stranded for weeks, back when things on land seemed under control (how we long for those days). Apparently, my older brother had just taken the Grand Princess two weeks prior to the fateful virus sailing.

I think it’s safe to say, we will play it safe. Even if the boat was clean, do we really want to leave the comfort of home to fly to California, spend a week, or much longer, in close quarters with 2000 others in various ports of call?

Weight Status Update

So far so good! At the beginning of the challenge, my wife purchased a new bathroom scale – one of those “smart” scales that can send your data to your phone and track for multiple household members (and catch cheating spouses). Interestingly, the brand is called RENPHO, which always kind of looks like RentHop.

From 150+ to 145.2. Halfway there!

Ways to make your space feel bigger when you meditate

In a world that moves at a breakneck pace, finding time to slow down and quiet your mind is difficult—and it’s also essential. Many people turn to meditation to help. The practice guides the mind to a calmer place using breathing techniques, mantras, and imagery. It can be as simple as breathing deeply and repeating a phrase or as complicated as traveling to a different plane tucked away in the recesses of your imagination. Either way, you need a quiet, calm space to do it in order to really reap the benefits of meditation. Here’s how to make your apartment feel bigger when you meditate.

  1. Oust any clutter.
    One of the most obvious ways to make your space feel larger is to rid it of any stuff that’s non-essential. Purging extra clutter is a good habit to get into, whether you meditate or not. Donate any knick-knacks, furnishings, and decor that you don’t really need in order to open up some space for your meditative practice. This will make it even easier to get into the zen zone.
  2. Welcome natural light.
    When sunshine comes streaming into your home, it makes your world a bit brighter and bigger. Harness the power of natural light and pick a corner for meditation with ample windows. The sunny rays, and the view visible through the windows, will make your meditation nook feel instantly more spacious.
  3. Enlist neutral hues.
    While dark colors tend to make a room feel smaller, light and neutral tones do just the opposite. Whites, creams, and shades of beige create the illusion of extra space. So when you pick furnishings for your meditation area (or for any room in your home, really), opt for these lighter colors instead of dark, bold hues. If you already have darker furniture in the area where you intend to meditate, there’s no need for a full makeover. Just add some lighter elements, like a whitewashed throw blanket or set of pillows.
  4. Just add mirrors.
    Mirrors instantly add square footage to your home, almost in the same way that a window does. The reflection seemingly doubles the size of any space. Affix a mirror to your wall or find a small stand-alone mirror that you can incorporate into your meditation nook.
  5. Strategically place your pillow.
    One essential that every meditation space must have is a cushy pillow for you to perch on. Pick your pillow and then arrange it strategically to make your space feel larger. Instead of pushing it up against the wall, pull it out at least six inches. This is an old trick for arranging furniture. When you let your furnishings float, the room feels bigger. When they connect with the wall, that seems to suck up space—or, at least, make a room look smaller. You can use this tip with any piece of furniture or decor in your meditation area.
