The past many weeks (well honestly months and years) I have stupidly taken it upon myself to prove that the human body needs sleep and rest. I was all "look how much I can do on little sleep!" Ok, well it wasn't really like that. But I chose not to take care of myself to get more work done.
A big goal for 2017 was to start sleeping more. Here's a problem. That's not enough. I have dragged myself down so far that sleep is not enough.
Alright . . rest . . . can I learn to rest while awake? I occasionally take relaxing baths. But, this rest things needs to be a daily effort I believe.
I rested today. Please, please, hold your applause ;) As I was resting, I did some reflecting . . . the lack of rest thing is not new for me. I've known this. It is not my strong suite. If I'm up and awake, I want to be doing something. I see a great disconnect between what my mind wants and what my body needs.
So, I'm going to work on it. Today was a small step in the right direction. Tomorrow I'll take another step, and then another, and another. Look at me . . all scheduling (yesterday's blog) and resting and stuff. It is sooo not my style. BUT, I know it is sooo what I need. So I'm working on it.
Tonight I am thankful for tiny steps in the right direction. I am tired of being tired. So I'm changing . . slowly but surely.
