Today I am sticking to one of my 2020 goals and doing nothing.
It may sound odd to say that but at the start of the year I had a Saturday when my classes hadn’t started back yet and my plans were cancelled last minute so I had a random day off with nothing planned. As in I didn’t need to set an alarm, get out of my pajamas unless I actually wanted to, where I could sit and watch TV aimlessly all day. I realised I needed it. I have a lot of roles and as such am on the go a lot, I start early and finish late most days. I look after myself and generally feel fine for the business – but taking a day off made me realise how beneficial that rest was. I made a commitment at that point to take one full day off a month, to guard that day with my life against anything.
I’ve had a stupidly busy January, to the point where the last week or so I’ve felt exhausted and actually achy and crap. My February is even busier, I’ve lots of exciting things coming up but that also means it will be non stop. I need today.
Goals can be personal to you and won’t always be what people expect. Going hard is good but knowing when to take a pit stop is equally as important.
