Monk Hours

I have an attraction to the monk lifestyle. Or perhaps I have an attraction to extreme lifestyles. You may not guess that by looking at me. I watch Netflix and football. Listen to Spotify and podcasts. But deep down – I am envious of Navy Seals and Monks. People with discipline.

A monk is someone “who practices religious asceticism by monastic living, either alone or with a number of monks”. I am married – so I will not be becoming a monk – but I can do more to cultivate a disciplined lifestyle.

I will be imposing Monk zone hours – from 6:30 am – 7:30 am and 10pm – 11pm. No podcasts, no TV or twitter. Just reflection, writing, reading, meditating.

It starts by having standard against which you hold yourself. You must meet them or not.
