3 Vacation reflections / things I want to change.
1. End the workday between 5pm-7pm.
Because I work for myself it’s extremely easy for me to work late into the evening on the blog. It’s weird because for me blogging transitioned from a hobby to a career, but for a long time I was still expecting it to feel like a hobby and I ran it like a hobby. More often than not (every night), I find myself working late into the evening. Usually this means I had a relaxed morning with less work, so I’m playing catch up come evening. Sometimes spending an evening writing a blog post is such an act of selfcare and I LOVE it. Other times I’d much rather be watching Grey’s Anatomy, talking to Andrew and /or beginning my evening unwinding routine…or figuring out what I need in an evening unwinding routine. Which brings me to the second thing I’d like to change…
2. Watch more Grey’s Anatomy.
I tend to multi task while I’m watching TV because TV doesn’t feel very entertaining, however Grey’s Anatomy is a show I love. Since I didn’t love high school / college, I don’t have many fond memories of that time, but one of the few fond memories is definitely Grey’s Anatomy. I want to make more time to watch Grey’s Anatomy whether between clients or in the evenings.
3. Asking myself my favorite question: How can I empower myself today?
While I’ve managed to figure out my disordered eating and exercise, I’m a person who struggles with stress and haven’t fully figured that piece of me out. As soon as we were back from vacation my GI issues flared up. I had ZERO GI distress on vacation when I was stress free, but as soon as I got back to work and life…BOOM! There the issues are waiting for me.
One of my very favorite questions to ask myself when I’m feeling overwhelmed is: How can I empower myself today?
Basically I brainstorm what I can do today to make that day better. It’s such a helpful question for me.
Any changes you’ve been wanting to make / things you’ve been wanting to explore?
