Before isolation had officially started, I decided that I was going to focus this whole 12+ weeks on setting these elaborate goals like becoming fluent in Spanish or learning how to do something completely new. I was so set on the idea that I was going to follow a static timetable and waste no minute of the day. I know I need structure and I know it’s not healthy to stay in bed all day. But this time does not have to spent how I planned, not everything has to be set in stone.
I have decided that my rigid way of thinking is something which I need to break away from, so instead of following plans, I’m following my interests. Some days I wake up and really don’t feel as though I can concentrate (definitely today) and other days I want to be super productive. There is no way you can pre-plan when this might occur! So why try?
Today I am feeling pretty sluggish, not up for learning and not really up for watching TV. I think it’s one of those days where I need to focus on self-care and renew my tired self with a bath, chocolate and a nap. I am also going to spend my evening off of social media and read a new book, althought I can’t decide which one! I haven’t sat down and read a book in a while, so I am actually really looking forward to it.
I challenge you all to complete at least 3 things from this image before you go to sleep tonight!
Here are my top tips I have given to myself today:
- Accept help if/when you need it!
- Don’t put pressure on yourself to be amazingly productive everyday!
- Slow down. Take time to explore interests or even just slob out if you want to!
On a different note, I do potentially have a special opportunity coming up which would be really cool, just waiting for confirmation!
I hope everyone has had a good start to the week!💕 Stay safe and wash your hands!!
