When you get caught up in the business of the day, it is often very difficult to switch off. Yes, I know it’s only Monday, but I really am a strong advocate for taking short breaks during the day.
The problem, for me (I’m sure that no-one else struggles with this), is that once I start working and functioning in work-mode, it’s really difficult to stop. I struggle to pause.
So, what I’m going to start trying is, to set an alarm on my phone, for every two hours, and then when it goes off, to stop. To stop, take a breath, get up if I’ve been sitting for two hours (because we all work mostly on our computers now), and just re-group and re-organise my thought with regards to what I’m busy doing.
Honestly, sometimes I feel like Alice in Wonderland just falling down into the abyss of who-knows-what!
So, if you’re up for the challenge, join me this week as we re-group and re-focus every two hours. It’s just for five days. And then, hopefully, we will naturally start checking in on ourselves.
