Photo is of Dug being brave and doing some excellent climbing and doing new things. He is my role model 100%
Been sleeping much better! Got home from my parents yesterday and didnt get woken up by Dug this morning which is a relief 😂 Not sure I can keep up with his 6am wake up call but I was surprised what an extra hour could do to my day. Ive really taken it easy these past few days and resisted making myself be productive.
Turns out Im a workaholic and that workahol is a hard thing to kick.
Whenever I thought “I need” I would tell myself I didnt “need” to and it could wait... at least until next week. What I REALLY needed was to rest and try to relax and gather my strength again. Whenever I thought “I want” I went with it.
This weekend was no place for“shoulds” and “needs to”.
It wasnt so easy. The lack of sleep made it difficult but also reminded me the importance of rest. I had a bit of nausea to contend with but again I saw it as a clear sign that I needed to rest.
I did get a bit panicky twice in the space of four but caught the feelings and tried to go easy on myself. My body is telling me its strugglinf
Im still evaluating whether a couple of days is enough to feel capable again. Theres so much I want to get on with but Im seeing how important it is to look after myself. Theres some good things Ive got coming this week and Im going to concentrate in what is essential/what I am committed too and see how much farther I need... wait no... want to push myself.
