I have lots of resolutions and goals for 2014. I don’t want to bore you with my laundry list of this and that, so I’ll just skip to the big one- pressing pause. I want nothing more for the new year than to just slow down. My recent bout with adrenal fatigue has left me quite drained. I did it to myself. We do it to ourselves. I’ve become a workaholic. My over-connectedness via social media, e-mail and texts has left me out of touch with actual reality- people and places. Relationships have been compromised and I’ve gotten out of touch with things I love. It’s easy to do.
It’s time to press
stop pause. But how?
I need to learn to work smarter- not harder. But how? Better delegation, clearer communication, more follow-up, make lists
I need to have preset work/home boundaries. But how? Shut off my outlook exchange on my iphone, ipad and computer on my days off. Don’t check e-mail before I get to work. Keep my calendar updated
I need to relax. But how? Have regularly scheduled bodywork sessions, take soothing baths, get enough sleep.
I need to disconnect. But How? Limit the amount of TV watched, only go online for a set amount of time each day. Read books.
I’m a lucky soul who has good health insurance, but I hardly use it. I need to keep up with health maintenance. I haven’t had proper blood work drawn in years. If I don’t take care of my own health I can’t take care of others.
There you have it! My big resolution for 2014. In case you were wondering ( 🙂 ) I also plan on getting married, learn to make soap, stop keeping my credit card in my pocket, eat breakfast, do preliminary course work to become a board certified specialty pharmacist and post more on this blog!
