"Give your body and mind a break."
Wednesday, June 15, 2011
Today's Healthy Reflection was all about giving your body the 8 hours it needs to heal, physically, emotionally, and mentally, from the beating you give it the other 16 hours of the day.
I really, really struggle with this. I have too many things to do! I know that I am not alone in feeling this, but I don't know how I can get done the things I am committed to doing in just 16 hours.
Right now I commute about 1.5-2 hours daily. This is eating into a huge chunk of my theoretical 16-hour window of productivity.
This is maybe the busiest time in my life right now. My fiance and I decided two weeks ago to get married this October, instead of next summer. So there are lots of decisions to be made about that. I have 7 days left at my current job, and I begin a new job August 8. In between that, I am traveling to NYC to work for 5 weeks at what will be a grueling teacher training Institute. The prep work for that alone is taking 2-3 hours per night. To top it all off, our lease is up in July so I am (supposed to be) packing.
I'd like to get 8 hours. I feel better when I do. But I just wasted 10 minutes blogging.
