The past three weeks have been busy, on the work side of things it has been a little cray cray. One more week until I can finally take a big breathe again, until important tasks are completed and, fingers crossed, I will be able to fall asleep without thinking (and stressing) about work. I guess you can imagine how excited I am for this. In all of this I've been trying to keep my cool, some days it worked, some days it didn't. What has helped to keep me sane on a super busy schedule? This right here:
* Floor moments. Dropping down. Breathing and letting all the emotion from within rise above. Sometimes it meant crying others times it meant getting angry. * Acknowledging all the feels. I know how difficult this can be. How easily we tend to try to push the negative emotions away. The anxiety and stress and worry and doubt. I am starting to see more and more how important it is to acknowledge them. So I tried my best.
* Coffee. Good coffee. It's one of my feel-good moments. For me its one of my most sacred rituals. * Check-in. Each day I tried to check in with myself. What was I craving? What was I in need off? What did my soul crave for? And I tried to implement that as best as I could. Sometimes it meant not working, but instead taking a nap. Not easy to do so, to stop pushing, but I feel that in the end, I did benefit from this. After all, I am not living to work.
Maybe this helps a few of you as you are going through busy work days before the year wraps up, maybe it helps you to enjoy December a little bit more stress-free.
I am gonna drink that cup now, take a breath, get back to work and remember that in one week, I'll be "free" again
I am sending you all the love,
