I’ve been pushing myself too hard of late… Too much work, trying to make a good impression in my new role; too many late nights; too much rushing; too much drinking; too much eating; too much putting pressure on myself to please others.
I spent a bit of time regaining perspective on Sunday and decided that I would use May to get myself back on an even keel.
- I want to be healthy - I’m committing to exercise daily, not to mention eating better and drinking less, with the goal of losing 4kg by the end of May.
- I want to be mindful - I’m committing to at least ten minutes of meditation a day, to clear my mind and help provide clean water for those in need, thanks to Mindful In May.
- I want to be happier - I’m committing to walk out of the office by 6pm every day, to leave the pressures of work at the door, and to enjoy some fresh air every evening.
Six or twelve months ago, I wouldn’t have come to this realisation. That I have is a positive in itself.
Now let’s see if I can stick to it!
