1 week Challenge to Improve Reaction time - Day 7 (Final day and Reflection)

1 week Challenge to Improve Reaction time - Day 7 (Final day and Reflection)

Can you imagine a week passed just like that? It seems like I just started doing this yesterday...lol

Anyway, what I can't believe the most is completing this challenge! Yes, 7 days is very short but still, I felt the sense of satisfaction! It not only came from completing the challenge but also from being able to do the "after-work". Which is editing the video and then posting it daily for 7 days!


1 week Challenge to Improve Reaction time - Day 7 (Final day and Reflection)

The "results":

Total Number of catches: 35 (estimated).

Total Number of Misses: 17 (estimated)

Time taken to complete 25 catches: 1.5 - 2 minutes (estimated)

Highest Number of consecutive catches: 2 sets of 10.


Reflection

I actually did this challenge for 3 reasons, 2 of them was stated in the first post, that is to

1) Improve reaction time
2) Improve hand-eye coordination

and the third one, it has something to do with Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

"Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people's difficulties, and so change the way they feel." - Ben Martin, Psy.D.

My understanding of this is just that, "if you do nothing, you changes nothing and you'll just continue to feel you can achieve nothing." So what is left for you to do? Something, obviously! Even if its small.

I know that the world doesn't appreciate "small things" as much, especially if you're into adulthood. Little achievements are not to be "brought to the table" or "they're nothing!". Some people might even tell you, "don't waste your time on useless things that doesn't help you!" (I was told once a few years back). But ask yourself, how many of us does and stick to these "nothing"? Or do we just talk about wanting to do it?


I've achieved my goal to do 10 consecutive catches and I reconfirmed it by doing it a 2nd time. I've completed the 1 week challenge by doing a session daily. I must admit, there is one day (just yesterday) that I was feeling unwell and wanted to "do it tomorrow" but I didn't. I still did a session and then finish the editing and updated an entry.

This I can be proud of. I do not need to boast about it but I feel happy with myself.

Even though its just a baby step, even though I did not improve a lot (in hand-eye coordination and reaction time) but I gained other things. I'd still continue to do this activity even if its not on a daily basis.

So, I'd like to say, if you're thinking about doing something, just do it, even if its small, even if its silly!
