The key to our old place is now handed over and we only have one house to focus on. The relief of the handover and all the things that have been happening both at work and at home has left me quite tired, so we decided to make this week a little more quiet. To focus on work, relax and try to think of all the things we have probably missed these last weeks. And trust me that is quite a few things.
Monday I was so tired that I had a nap in the afternoon, but I still went early to bed that evening and slept solidly the whole night. It was much needed. And made me realize that a quiet week really is necessary. If I keep burning the candle in both ends I will eventually burn out and I really don’t want that to happen.
And both Tuseday and yesterday I had to go to sleep early and was very tired. I could also feel my fuse getting a bit short.
Next week I have a little holiday with a couple of days of and I will focus on both progressing with the work in the new house but also take a few days where I will focus on relaxing and gathering new energy so that I have more to give on a later occasion.
I do feel like I caught the stress early this time and I am doing my best to make sure that I push myself enough that I grow, but not so much that I give in to the stress and end up injuring myself or burning myself out. But that is the thing with stress, most often you do not catch how bad it is before it is too late.
What do you do to relax in stressful periods? I like to sleep, eat good food and go for long walks in fresh air.
