I'm happy to announce that my stress journal is going well. I'm both getting down daily entries on my stress level (which is nice) and the levels are steadily and rapidly going down (which is great). The bad news is, then I got a horrible flu.

New stuff

What next?

I'm running out of stuff to try. I had in mind a bunch of things to test at the beginning of Hacked Man, but I've sort of done those already. Time to think up something.

Thinking up something
