We had a perfect Sunday and I thought I was ready to tackle the rush of Monday. Well… not so much. I didn’t have a lot of tasks but by the end of the day I was irritated and not sure why. Retrospectively, I think part of the reason was that I was multi-tasking. For example: when I was watching a webinar, I was browsing news/social media which left me exhausted. it was only yesterday that I realised that this happens often and I almost always get the same result. So I think I need to make some small changes:
- if I tune in a meeting/webinar by choice, I’ll only listen to it. If I get bored, I’ll leave.
- have soothing music when I need to focus. It annoyed background noise when i need to focus and when you work surrounded by kids, this is unavoidable, so maybe I need to artificially create some blank state of mind.
- have an unwinding activity/ritual at the end of the day that I look forward. Maybe a walk by the neighbourhood with the girls (without music/podcast).
let’s see if I can accomplish this. This post reminded me of being present and grounded.
Lunch was simple was i went to do groceries before lunch. Veggie stir-fry with glass noodle and vegan sausage, leftover baked radish and sweet potato, egg scramble and tomato, cucumber salad, and black rice.
Gratitude: I am grateful to have morning quiet time. Those few hours are critical for me to find the zen state, to be present and grounded.
