Week of Monday 24082020

Everyone gets ill sometimes – pretty much nothing you can do about that other than looking after yourself, not beating yourself up, and knowing that (most of the time) you’ll be better pretty soon. I tend to be bad at recognising when there is too much going on, so sometimes my body has to tell me to slow down for a little bit!

Between moving, upcoming job change, and having to fight to see more of my daughter I’ve been coping with a lot of stress, combine that with less sleep over the last couple of weeks, it’s not surprising something had to give.

Listen to your body (and mind), give yourself downtime – both physically and mentally, the less ill or injured you are, the more progress you’ll make!
