I haven’t been waking up at 4:30a or 5:30a, but at 6a. which I think is pretty good considering I LOVE to SLEEP! Zzzzz The past few days of sleeping past 4:30a is pretty nice. My alarm still goes off at 4:30a, I hit the off button and fall right back to sleep. I haven’t been to bed early since last Tuesday, but last night I did lay down at 9p. My body was telling me to slow down and relax. It’s been a rough week…no a busy week. A little stressful, but overall it was handled with care and ease.
This morning I have swept my house, did a load of laundry and cleaned the bathrooms. I feel energized when doing that because I know that I don’t have to come home to a messy house. I want this to be a routine at least twice a week and the other 3 days I want to go for a walk. The weekends will be left alone to relax and enjoy it with family and friends.
I can’t really describe what I am learning from all of this, but what I do need to learn is to take time out for myself. Not in a selfish way, but in a healthy way. My moods have changed and that I know needs to get better. I have been an emotional mess the last few days, so I must go back and reflect on the days I woke up early and felt good about it. Yes, that is exactly it! Reflect, Repair and Relax. Let’s give this a shot and move forward with the positive attitude that all will be good, all will be great and all will be loved.
