AHHHH this week has felt almost insurmountable. I am getting through it, though!
My biggest issues have included:
- Not being on track with sleep (mini-vac was worth it but sleep debt/sleep disruption was real)
- Many work meetings
- Just generally being in a funk
I think that last point has to do with transitions, and how I tend to fall apart at the ends of things sometimes. In this case, the ‘end’ I am referring to is my GME role and commitment. I tend to be in a rush to get to the next thing, which can be a bit problematic.
I guess at least I am aware of my tendencies!
2.5 more weeks though isn’t much and it will likely go quickly.
Confession time: every year around Hobonichi time I end up browsing Reddit, because there is a big Hobonichi-loving community there and I love seeing what others are getting and reading about how others use their planners.
(I mean, it’s research right? For BLP? Maybe?)
AAAAAAND then I get sucked into other subreddits (like the /running one), and pretty soon I’m scrolling in that zombie way that I used to consume Instagram. And I wonder why I am tired and unmotivated and feeling generally blah.
Seriously, I’m pretty sure this has happened 3 years in a row. But now I am wise to myself. I have learned that social media and I just do not get along. I hate how it sucks in my time, my attention, my eyeballs. So, I deleted the app this morning. It was fun to see everyone’s deliveries but it’s also time to move on.
Kate Hanley has a daily podcast called “How to Be a Better Person” and interviewed me as part of her series on . . . you guessed it . . . PLANNING! Excited to share the track above, or you can find it here (ep #794).
