Do you ever have the kind of weekend where you get to the end of it and it’s like you’ve had no weekend at all? Or, maybe you get part way into the new week and you find yourself feeling totally burned out already?
So, I have this theory …
You know how everyone complains about Monday? Well, not me. I love Mondays! That’s not to say that I don’t enjoy the weekend – of course I do – but I also love Mondays because they’re so full of potential and possibility. Kinda like a mini-New Year’s Day that comes around every seven days.
Maybe you feel a little bit like that too? And so you charge into the new week, full of excitement, raring to go.
And then Tuesday dawns and you’ve totally worn yourself out! Or maybe that’s just me?!? 😉
But if it’s not just me, if you too feel yourself teetering on the edge of burnout, take this as your reminder to allow some fun into your today.
“Fun” is totally subjective of course.
If you’re running on too little sleep, there is no better fun than a nap. If you’ve been sat in front of a computer screen for too long, fun is getting outside in the fresh air. And if you haven’t got caught up on the last episode of Game of Thrones yet, you know what to do! 😉
Seriously though, now is not the time to bend to someone else’s idea of fun. This is about knowing what makes you smile and choosing to do that. Because life’s too short to run it at full speed all the time.
And nope, that doesn’t mean that if you go too fast you’ll get to the end of it quicker (although I guess you might. Stress is bad for you and all that) but it won’t be as delightful as it could be.
And delight gets my vote, every time! 🙂
