... oops - I wobbled!
The weekend was dominated - too dominated - by working. How to find a balance, that's my current issue. I too easily slip into working all the time - school work or housework or both. That certainly happened this weekend. I really noticed the effects on coming home from work, where i felt on edge, irritable, tired - and yet, instead of taking time to relax, I set to with housework.
I forgot the break and lunch time relaxation task too. And the daily journalling. I'm not doing too well at the looking after myself bit at the moment.
I recognise too that triggers - major, fundamental, historical family ones - have been at work this weekend. I have taken steps to minimise them, but they are having an impact. My next counselling session isn't until Friday this week - wish it were sooner.
Focusing on the end point again now, stilling my breathing and trying to remind myself I don't have to do everything, don't have to be perfect.
Action plan -
Relaxation is a MUST.
Sleeping tablets - alternate nights may not be manageable just at the moment.
Daylight - I need to get more. Will try to fit in a lunchtime walk this week.
