First I want to say, Beeminder has been amazing and I think it’s the only app I’ve ever used that I can genuinely say has changed my life.
I’ve been using Beeminder for about 5 months and I’ve slowly added more habits over time. I currently have about 6, (technically 8, but those last two are do less goals that I don’t consider exhausting at all).
Lately I’ve felt kind of burnt out. In the past, I was able to stay 7 days ahead on almost all of my goals as the norm. Now I’m always one or two days ahead, sometime 3 at the most.
I know I can simply make the goals easier or delete them completely, but they’ve been helping me so much, I don’t want to cut back. And most of them already seem pretty low to me.
So any advice on this? Would it be dishonest to schedule a future “vacation”, so I can get ahead?
Any suggestions for staying 7 days ahead so I don’t fall back into this problem?
Any other tips for staying productive with burn out?
I want tor reiterate that I’m not complaining. Finally being able to stick with my habits is a wonderful problem to have. And in most ways it’s made me far happier so that’s why the decision on how to cut back is a tough one!
