As I write this today, I am very tired and I’m taking a moment to reflect. The past few weeks have been really busy, and I think it’s finally taken a toll on my health. That, combined with lack of sleep, and stressing about things like gas leaks (no, it’s too long and boring a story to go into), has finally ended up making me a very cranky, grouchy person.
So I figured, time to declutter again.
No, not just throw things away. By the way, I am very pleased to report that I have continued to make my bed every morning now. My room used to be the messiest place in the house, but now it’s still neat and tidy! It’s also really a lot nicer and more restful when you go to bed at night – seeing a clean and tidy bed with nothing that shouldn’t be on it there.
I’m not decluttering physical things, but I’m decluttering activity from my life. So tonight, I have decided to sleep no later than 9:30pm. I’m tired, and I need rest. I’m putting my Chinese away for the night, and I’m not sure if it’s an excuse or not (at least I don’t think it is), but in order for me to be more productive, I think it’s better for me to rest properly.
It’s about pacing yourself, and taking things easy. I learned this the hard way when I got put away in a hospital last year because I had pneumonia. Truly, a not fun experience in any way at all.
Tonight, what I am going to do is some writing, maybe a little reading, but also some meditation.
I’m sure then my mind will be a lot clearer and relaxed and I’ll be ready to take on a whole bunch of challenges.
