What I’m doing right now

This is a now page, inspired by Derek Sivers  — a nearly-always updated page of what I’m up to these days.

My friends and others ask me what I’m doing. Instead of resorting to superficial social media updates, I’d prefer to say the important things here.

Let’s get to it!

Updated: May 2020

Work Life

My coding skills have improved dramatically during lockdown. I have spent many hours a day coding, and I love it. I now have a few strategies in my portfolio which you can see in my performance section where I share my bots performance.

I am currently developing a new cbot which is coming together really well. My goal will be to sell this bot once completed and tested.

But more about that later.

If you want to be the first to hear about this new bot, be sure to join my email list.

Personal Life

Whilst in lockdown, I have started incorporating body weight exercises and tabata style workouts into my fitness regime. I have realised that I don’t need to go to the gym to be able to get a decent workout in. My body and the outdoors (or my indoor pullup bar) is all that’s needed.

I’m currently reading Awaken the Giant Within by Tony Robbins.

Health and fitness

I’ve moved to a vegan diet which I have been following for over a year now.

I’ve decided to start using my juicer again (it was gathering dust for some time!). So instead of making juices each and everyday I make a big batch that lasts me one week.

I’ve also recently started drinking more water. Living in the UK, I find it hard to drink water in the winter. I’m aiming for at least 2 Liters per day.

I’ve started meditating for 5 minutes each day using an app called Headspace.

Writing

I’m pushing myself to publish more on this blog. I’m constantly coming up with ideas, however, I struggle to write and actually put pen to paper. HELPPPPP!

Personal

Nothing to really report here, other than I am constantly minimalising my life, clothes and all things clutter!

Health and fitness

I’ve moved to a more plant based diet and looking at nutrition more holistically. Personally I believe that a more balanced lifestyle is more beneficial and by not being labelled as “vegan” will mean that I can actually stick to eating healthily longer-term.

I am also intermittent fasting by following the Leangains guide with my eating window being 1-8 (or 9).

I’ve started meditating for 5 minutes each day using an app called Headspace. I have found that the benefits of meditation has spilled into trading such as improved clarity, lower stress and increased patience.
