Episode 11 of The 365 podcast was all about doing a 365 project that wasn't necessarily set around the goal of art-making, but rather self-discipline and self-betterment. Tomorrow, I'm starting one for myself, and it'll be exclusively on Snapchat.
Over the past couple years, I've been living a pretty unhealthy lifestyle. I don't sleep much, and I really don't exercise as regularly as I used to. What my 365 photo project has taught me is that when I set rules around something, and make it public, I feel like I can't give up. If I keep my goals to myself, I tend to hold myself a little less accountable.
I'm going to spend the next year living a more active and healthy lifestyle, taking things a day at a time. After the podcast, I realized I should take my own advice and actually try and apply the 365 to something other than just photography. I think this will end up being a lot more challenging, but a ton more rewarding.
I'm also excited about using Snapchat for this project. I think that's the perfect place for it. You can follow me on Snapchat at willmalone365 or snap the image in the post. Day 1 is tomorrow!
