Take that d@mn day off already!
I have had a heck of a time taking a day off. I have so many balls in the air and it’s almost like I set myself up for failure if I “indulge” in one day off. Yup, I fell into old habits where once I stop a day of work, something in the system inevitably breaks down. I mean, I have been my own worst enemy. When I had been doing this for a while I fell ill (a.k.a. exhaustion induced), and I was still keeping odd hours. I traveled to San Francisco and worked as soon as I hit my guest room. I mean, really?
Other than this self imposed chaos, I have a very comfortable life. And it got better once I implemented one simple easy, why the hell didn’t I do this earlier, system. It’s called… Scheduling you first.
This beautiful lesson I need to put myself through yearly has reared it’s ugly head once more. I am not a girl that thrives in chaos, really. As I get older I see what a big fat waste of time it really is! Wouldn’t I want to be in my total best mood rather than a push through mentality that is going to stick me in the end! Yes, insert ugly metaphor here because honey, it’s not pretty!
Mind Shift because Arianna said so…
I’m totally going to tell you something that I’m not proud of. There have been moments where I feel like I am half asleep almost days at a time just to push through. I see this as not my best moments but it was all for the “cause” of getting $h!t done. I began to be clumsy and bump into things more than average and even faux fainted twice (I say faux because I caught myself twice before I hit the ground). About a few months ago I had seen Arianna Huffington’s Ted Talk, and wow! I totally relate! I’m very much still ambitious and will stop at nothing until I get my business where I want it, but this time I’m going to do it much smarter by simply sleeping.
Sleep is what I need to have to go to the next level when I asked my body. Ask yourself this question. “What does my body need to grow my business?”
Here is a meditation to help you figure that out.
