It’s strange how you can get a lot done even when you start a working day feeling dreadful. This morning I couldn’t concentrate, was feeling tired and out of sorts after a deeply unsettling (though I think eventually positive) conversation with a friend. I thought I might as well just go back to bed because I’d never achieve anything. I had no energy and a real reluctance to get started on anything.
How did I get out of that state? I started tinkering with my to-do list, found something small and simple and got that done, then somehow things started to flow more easily. I think a cup of tea and my favourite choc chip cookies probably helped too!
As the end of the day approaches I realise I’ve made a lot of progress. Glad I resisted the urge to crawl back under the pillow! Would probably have made me feel worse…. sometimes focussing on something concrete is a very effective distraction.
Now, off to a yoga class with some new friends I’ve made recently.
(PS – apologies for the erratic posting schedule – my home internet access has been out of commission since last Wednesday which is a real nuisance!)
