Have you ever had those weeks where you don’t even want to get out of bed? Last week was one of those for me. I felt the energy had been sucked right out of me. Like a fog surrounding me and I couldn’t get to the light. I only exercised once and slept late just about every day. I just wanted to be in my own little cocoon and not talk to anyone. I don’t know whether it was hearing about the trouble in the Middle East, hormones, having to stay up late one night and getting off my sleep schedule or what. But, I didn’t like it.
And I don’t like staying in that place for long. So I spent the weekend getting all my to do’s gathered in one place, getting to the bottom of my email, calling back all my voicemail and clearing off my desk. I started feeling lighter already. All that to do stuff must have been using up too much space in my head and bringing me down. The family and I spent a little time picking up the rest of the house as well.
Then I took out my journal to write out the muck. I got back into my quiet time – getting up late made it so I didn’t do my morning quiet time all week. I talked to family. I planned a visit.
Finally, I did my weekly planning, making sure I had something to look forward to every day even if it was just lying in the hammock reading for a few minutes. I also planned less things I thought I had to do.
I feel recharged this week and ready for what is ahead.
