I have a question about viewing the most recent posts on long threads. I’ve been relying on clicking the notifications which takes me right to that recent post, but if there were several recent comments at the same time on one post they get lumped together in a notification, and when I click on it, it goes only to the most recent one. When I click “see more posts” or whatever it says, it goes all the way back to the beginning! It seems like the only way to view the end of the thread is to scroll for ages and ages. Am I missing something? This is all in the app, but I believe I had the same trouble on my computer too.

https://jamesclear.com/slow-gains I just read this article, on the merits of slow, easy gains and progress over achievement. I think it makes some great points that match up with the same conclusions I’ve come to, with regard to not only exercise but lots of other things in life. Always a good reminder, so I thought I would share! The bullet points are that slow gains add up quick, help you handle greater intensity later on, foster recovery, and promote long-term, consistent progress (and/or, I would add, habits!) over going hard but then hitting a wall or giving up.

Curiosity poll! What and when is the first thing you eat or drink in the morning, usually? What feels best to you in terms of a morning routine?

My middle kid is totally and completely obsessed with eating. The other two are indifferent, but this one will eat absolutely anything and acts like she is constantly starving to death. She cried and begged to eat the baby’s spinach purée, which is honestly one of the grosser things I’ve tasted, but apparently she was not fazed. It constantly amazes me how differently each of my kids naturally reacts to food.

A couple months ago I found a really great app you can use to keep track of habit completions that I wanted to recommend. ThpIt’s called Streaks. I bought the paid version I think, but I find it really informative. You can make it so you mark each day/time you complete a good habit, or where you mark each time you miss one/do a bad habit. It will show you percentage completions over period of times and breakdowns by day of the week. And it also keeps track of “streaks” of completions, which is fun. It can also sync up to other apps and devices, so like I set it to check with my iPhone step counter to count when I make more than 10,000 steps in a day. I’ve downloaded about 4 or 5 habit apps, but I like the interface and data on this one the best. It’s really fun and rewarding to use. Thought I’d share and recommend it!
