Return to the Real World
My holiday break is over and I return to work today. I do believe this is the best break I've ever had. I practiced mindful self-care the entire break and Mother Nature was an absolute blessing - the best weather that I can recall. The unseasonable weather allowed me to get outside and work in the yard, or walk, or ride most every day. I didn't create for myself some monster to-do list that couldn't possibly get completed. I did a few things every day. I sort of took my life in 15 minute increments. If it was a task that I didn't want to do, I only had to do it for 15 minutes, then I could stop. I got a lot done with that strategy and felt good about the process.
Work has the potential to be a real stress-machine and I hope that I can deal with that as it comes - and not anticipate trouble before trouble actually arrives.
Phone-A-Friend Scorecard: 1
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Practice extreme self-care.
