I have always taken pride in the fact that I can zap out my blogs, without too much thought and the ideas would just be there.
Well, not right now. Much of it I know is because I am exhausted, a tad brain-dead to be honest. Don’t get me wrong, I love, love, love doing my conference, but it takes a lot out of me, especially, though I am loath to admit it, as I get older.
All that physical moving of stuff; the constant second-guessing what could go wrong and the ultimate attention to detail, gets to you after a while. Hey, I did 16,000 + steps according to my Fitbit the day before the conference. No wonder I am tired but at least I got a special badge from them for all my effort
But this blog is not my opportunity to moan or complain about my plight. No, it is more about being honest and authentic… and right now, quite frankly I am ready for a holiday. My mojo has already left town, and I need to follow it.
And this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It would be more worrisome if I was ignoring these signs, and trying to continue on as usual. What about you? Do you listen to what your body or mind is telling you? I am sure I am not alone in the need for a summer break.
Sadly we often try to forge on but is that really helpful to anyone? Probably not. No, I am listening to my body, and for once, we are in agreement – time for a break. Because I know after I have rested up, I will be raring to go, full ideas of what to do next, whereas right now, I am kind of depleted. Definitely time to refuel.
Taking a break from the day-to-day refreshes us. Doing something outside of the normal schedule also creates that sense of departure from the routine of life. So it doesn’t have to be a vacation, just hours snatched away just for yourself. Trust me it can make all the difference.
Check your energy level. Maybe it is time for you to recharge the batteries. As for me, I am outa of here .. pretty soon. See ya.
