2016 Week 1 Self-therapy vlog (Daily Learning Vlog #95)

Today I experimented to see what a self-therapy video blog might look like. And I may also post the unedited version here once I have time to upload it. I also started a personal changelog (see below) to track my efforts to reprogram my brain and conquer anxiety and my other most personal obstacles.

Brain Changelog

Version 0.0.1

Note: the most up-to-date version of this changelog will be on my 2016 planning page.

  • This CHANGELOG (inspired by Keep a Changelog), to track the project of reprogramming Liz’s brain and to serve as a fun example of the confluence between software development (especially open source) and cognitive behavioral therapy. (Not sure how well I can follow Semantic Versioning, though.)
  • New habit: weekly self-therapy vlog.
  • New rule: schedule shared activities with my family prior to visiting them.
  • New rule: schedule something fun or social for the day after my planned family visit.
