Right, I’m absolutely shattered right now, but I had to share – my holiday has started! I’m officially off work for nearly 3 weeks now. And I’ve earned it so don’t even try to come after me for shouting it from the rooftops.
As much as I love my job, in addition to everything else (going to see my family, Yule, sorting the house, etc), I need some time off to sort my head out a bit again. I know I say the same thing about once every three months but I need a plan. For my head. For what’s in my head to be more precise, I guess. I need to find a way to live my life
to the fullest without being so exhausted all the bloomin’ time.
Actually, scratch that, I AM living my life to the fullest, what I need to do is figure out how to fit some adult stuff in that. For example, I used to cook every day. Now it’s become such a chore that often I’d rather not eat. Again, I go through phases with that, as with ‘sorting my head’.
This may not make much (or any) sense to you, but it’s always the first step to getting my stuff together again – writing about it and figuring it out for myself. So, what I’ve learned so far – every few months I realise I’ve slipped into some weird state of mind which stops me from being productive or good to myself.
How do I fix this?
- Sleep schedule + bedtime routine. Verrrrry important. The last time I went through this I started going to bed earlier and I woke up early, getting a lot done before noon which in turn gave me such a rush of accomplishment it kept me going through the day.
You know what, I shall leave it here for now. One step at a time and stuff, right?
I’m not going to lie, going to bed early won’t be a challenge tonight. Like I said, I’m knackered. Woke up at 6 to be at work for 7am and finished at 4pm. Been a loooooong day.
