Good morning all.
It is VE Day and a bank holiday, hopefully the sun will shine.
Its such a testing time for us all, with working from home, lockdown, furlough, kids home all day and really
we don’t have an end in sight.
I was thinking back, to how exhausted I was, running around the country trying to do so much and wishing I
could work from home all the time and have more time to spend at home, I would be more relaxed and less tired. … Be careful what you wish for !
Personally I have adjusted very well to working from home and lock down and does help having a garden and space to take a break.
I have staggered days and work, but what I noticed this week after 3 full days a the laptop and on zoom calls,
I noticed how exhausted I felt at the end of day. The headache and aches and pains. How can I feel like this
just working at laptop. BUT no matter what we do its still work, its still energy we are using, its still
interacting with others. I never really thought about it. Today I really feel like I have ran a marathon and
worked 10 days straight.
I talk about self care a lot and how to help yourself , but perhaps I don’t practice what I preach as much as I should myself.
Schedule my day and week
Set times for the day
Take breaks often and coffee
Schedule the zoom calls and min calls a day
Walk out side
Limit time on technology after work
Stop and reflect
Do something to relax each day- read, colour, draw, write.
Helping others and supporting people, can get lost in you at times, so as a coach and trainer, I need to ensure I look after me also.
I do feel burnt out this week, my head has been buzzing around with so many things. So today is my day, to
switch off ( after I put this out obviously) go into garden, no phone and read.
Remember you have to look after yourself first !
Have a brilliant day and there is to all the heroes on VE Day 2020
