This cold is dragging me down

Friday, September 24, 2010

I am in a pretty sad mood today. I just don't feel all that great because of this stupid cold. I am absolutely miserable. I also have a million things to do and don't feel like doing anything but sleep today. I know if I don't do anything today I will have more to do tomorrow but at the same time I think I will be more productive tomorrow if I rest today. We'll see because I am resting most of the day today.

    Resting during a cold really does help you recover quicker. Even if you have to do more tasks later, you'll be feeling better

Today was a better day

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Today I decided to go with the flow of things. I took a lot of time for myself today and it made a big difference. I still have my cold but I am feeling much better than yesterday. I journaled, did a little of my typing work, and then took a nice walk in the park with my husband and dog Galen. I also allowed myself to take a much needed nap. Now I feel more like myself.


Busy day today but slowly getting things done

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

I spent the day doing laundry and grocery shopping. I have a cold so it was a slow moving process but I did get it done. Now I am planning on going to bed early tonight because this cold is making me feel like I got run over by a truck.


Feeling great today! Self-care does wonders!!

Today I decided to get my nails done as a reward for completing a huge project that I have been working hard to finish. I am so glad I finished the project and I am glad that I got my nails done. I had been promising myself all summer that I would get them done---but never did. I feel so much better and my motivation for completing other projects has increased. The stress I have been feeling about unfinished projects is decreasing too!

impatience and irritation of self the source of stress??

Monday, September 20, 2010

Today the source of my stress was my mood. I was so irritated with myself for not getting stuff done fast enough. I guess you could say that I was very impatient. I have so much on my list of to-do's that I can't think straight. I really need to make a list of all the mental to do's rolling around in my brain. I need to decide which one I need to do the most and then focus on that one item. Most importantly I need to learn to reward myself after I complete something big or small. I really need to acknowledge myself for the things I do right rather than beat myself up.

    I so know your frustration!!!! So much to do and so little time to do it!!!! But in the long run, I have learned to quit beating myself up cuz it is rather counter productive. And then make sure I take care of the most important items on my to-do list first!

Hang in there!!
