I’m a little dizzy as I write this. There are mornings that I wake up and start moving around too fast and I get dizzy. Days like this remind me that I don’t have to do anything if I don’t feel up to it. I had plans for today but after feeling the way I do since waking, I may have to cancel.
Last night I took melatonin and muscle relaxer so I could sleep. The combo works well but sometimes I’m groggy the next day. My first thought is to feel guilty for feeling bad, but that’s not even rational. I know that I haven’t kept up with my water intake and I’ve been eating crap.
Stop it! I know what I need to do, and I keep losing focus and doing what I want. Being 50 doesn’t help either. I’m blessed to reach this age and I will do my best to stay healthy. Every time I lose focus, I will forgive myself and refocus.
So, that’s what I will be doing today.
“I will forgive myself and re-focus.” YES! Self-compassion is so important. I hope you’ve been feeling better.
I’m a little better, thanks!
It’s good not to be too hard on yourself when you lose focus. We’re all human and we mess up sometimes.
Very true. Our bodies will always let us know when we need a break.
We all have those days! And it doesn’t help where I live that the fall weather is here and about to get even colder. It makes it difficult to walk this time of year so have to find others way to exercise. But you recognize that you had an off day. We all have them. Just get back on that horse and keep moving forward!
Thanks for the encouragement!
You are most welcome!!
