The end of another week and it feels like I’ve not made any progress. I feel just as tired and exhausted as I did last week and the week before that! I know I had a couple of really good days, but I haven’t been able to identify why they occurred or why they’re gone! It’s a very frustrating time….I just want to be like I used to be. I currently don’t really have a plan as to how I’m going to get there. I do know that I’ve been out a lot and not particularly been resting, but then I find it helpful to be around people too, rather than on my own. It’s difficult, but I think I’m going to have to cut back on the outings and force myself to rest at home more.
My lack of motivation makes things even more of a struggle, I know I beat myself up a bit about what I’m not doing, but it’s hard when you’re someone who is normally organised and up to date with things. It all just makes me feel like a failure.
So part of this weekend will be spent coming up with a bit of a plan for the next week….I know my sleep is something I have to work on….and a bedtime routine is needed I think. That’s the first thing I need to work on! Staying off my phone and laptop later in the evening is going to be the hardest habit to break – but I know it’s essential. Tomorrow I’ll post my plan.
3 things I’m grateful for today:
- My hairdresser – once you find a really good one you don’t want to lose them!
- My daughter being at senior school, which means she goes to school on the bus and I no longer have to do the school run!
- Headspace and time to think.
