Taking time and taking care
Last night was hell. Woke up choking in stomach acid and a coughing fit. Had a vomiting episode after another and ended up going to sleep at 4 am.
The funniest thing was that I contemplated going to work until 3 am when I decided that 2.5 hours sleep would not see me through 5 hours of teaching and 2 of meetings.
It was a tough decision as it's hard for me to miss work. It was necessary and I feel so much better for it.
Last week was a tough one, so busy in fact that I had no time for anything other than work and I ended up being really tired and grumpy on Friday.
I learnt a few things along the week:
I need to write everyday.
I need to manage my time better and leave work sooner.
I have to say no to some at times.
I have to stop checking my work mail at 7 pm.
I have to exercise daily.
I need to find time for myself daily.
When I don't do these things I feel unhappy, grumpy and out of my centre.
The good thing is that I've realised this very quickly, also good is that I know what the solution is. I'm back
