It’s Monday and I should be in the standing frame right now. I’m not because I woke up this morning, and everything hurts. it sounds like a really old man thing to say, but in the last couple years I really notice when the weather changes because it affects my body. Most of the time when I wake up like this. I fight through it. If I’ve got lazy every time I hurt I’d never do anything. Today was different. I got out of bed and just didn’t have the energy to deal with the added pain of the standing frame.
When I was a kid I had no problem taking time off. Snow days were a blast. I had no issues spending an entire day playing video games or watching movies. As I’ve gotten older however, it’s getting really hard take my brain out of work mode. Even though I skipped out on the standing frame, I feel like I need to be doing something work related. I guess that’s why I am writing this. It bothers me that I feel this way, because time off is a good. The human body needs rest, your brain needs time to down. I think this is something that Americans struggle with. I feel I have to work all the time because I’m not where I want to be in my life. Until I get there, taking a day off seems like a waste of very valuable time that I should use to get myself closer to where I want be.
As I was typing that, I realize that’s how people get burnt out. With that in mind, carve some time out for yourself this week. In the long run, I think it will be much more beneficial to your success then either you or I have any concept of. I’m going to get a massage in about 10 minutes, and then I’m going to take time off and watch some Netflix or play video games. I’m pretty sure my body will thank me later.
