It is Saturday evening when I am writing this. It is the first day of my 2-week vacation. I am also fatigued. I couldn’t fall asleep last night and I also got up at 7 AM because I wanted to go to the Primark early. This gave me the inspiration for this blog post because every night I have trouble with falling asleep and I think I know why. I am constantly overthinking and it is exhausting but it also keeps me from falling asleep.
A fresh start
But as I said, this is the first day of my vacation and I think a vacation is a perfect moment for a restart or fresh start. I think it is easier to change your habits during your vacation because your routine is different and you see different kinds of people.
Since I am just staying at home this summer, I think I am going to work on myself for the next couple of weeks, starting now.
Since overthinking is my biggest issue, it keeps me from enjoying life and falling asleep, it is one of the things I want to work on. I think this is my first step. My mind is always so cluttered, I need space in my head first. So I am going to do some mindfulness and do meditations. There are a few things I want to work on, but this is my main goal right now. I also think I shouldn’t have too many goals at the same time. I want to stay focused.
The other thing I am working on is work-related. I love blogging and creating online content. I also think I am getting better and better at this. So I want to work ahead since I have enough time for it. I want to create more and better online content. But I want to make sure I can publish something every single day, even when I am not feeling well. And I need to find a work routine that is working for me, even after my vacation.
Other things I want to do this vacation:
– Taking care of my body (more healthy food)
– Find magnesium/iron supplements ( I think my body needs them)
– Stretch body, become more flexible
– Read a lot. (don’t have a specific goal, but I think 3 or 4 books)
– Walk (To keep me in shape, since I normally walk a lot on a workday)
And now I am going to mindfully read a book. Have a wonderful day!
