Taking Time Out for Myself at Work

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

I work in front of a computer all day (hey, it beats the meetings and some of the presentations I go to as well). I feel pretty fortunate: Since it's my own office I can listen to music (except when I really need to concentrate, which is most of the time), I can be as cluttered as I want (I know, bad habit), and I have sanctioned times for lunch and breaks.

So what do I do? I keep things too disorganized (even for me). and--worst of all--
I work through breaks AND lunch. In fact, until I joined the program here, I very often just skipped lunch. I also don't take advantage of break or lunch to walk around the work campus, which, aside from seemingly never-ending construction, is a pleasant place. I mean, we have wild SQUIRRELS here (never saw those where I grew up) and feral cats, and pretty trees. It all goes back to my biggest problem: An intense aversion to walking beyond getting to and from the parking lot. (I know that I could find the most remot parking space available, and have a leaisurely 15-minute walk to the office, but believe me, if I don't have to, I'm not going to. Besides, I pride myself (I get my ego-boosters where I can, or maybe it's one of those notorious "guy things") on my exceptional ability to find a good parking space on a crowded day.

At any rate (slowly, so far), I'm going to find a solution to my medically unrecognized "walking allergy."

However, I must remind myself that I'm consistently eating lunch (and even a quick breakfast now), that I bought a few vitamins that I'll keep at work, and I'm drinking about 4-5 glasses of water while I'm at work.

Just between you and me, I'm also writing this at work. We'll keep that as our little secret.
