Every month I plan for the my wellbeing for the following month. Well every month but this month. Confession time, I didn’t do my wellbeing review on the last Wednesday of August. I didn’t do it last week either and worst of all, I’m only writing this now. So what’s been going on?
Life has been busy recently. August was a blur. There has been lots going on;
- lots of exciting things with my blogging business
- week’s holiday which was busier than planned
- family ups and downs with exam results, college and uni places and even a hospital stay.
Life gets in the way sometimes. I know it shouldn’t but I know what it is like when it does. Things have slipped and I have to be open and tell you.
So what am I going to do?
Well I’m actually going to give myself a breather.
I don’t want to set goals to just go through the motions or to keep up appearances. It is important for me to be authentic and be honest with you. We’re in this together!
So for the next couple of weeks, I’m taking the pressure off. Sometimes you need to take a break, relax and just breathe. So I am not going to be setting any targets or goals for now. I will still be looking after my self-care, of course but with a different twist.
Basic Rituals and Practices
- Self-care first thing in the morning, involving meditation, journalling and possibly reading too.
- Use Daily Greatness journal
- 3 litres of water a day
- Aim for daily step goal.
So I’m taking the pressure off and giving myself a break of anything more structured. Hoping to end September feeling lighter and in control.
Do you ever get those times when life gets in the way of what you want to do? What do you put in place?
