A step in the right direction
Recently I've been busy. Like insanely busy, sort of the busiest I've ever been busy. I've felt fairly stressed out about it, and the way I've dealt with that is to just completely stop trying to fit anything else in other than sleeping, eating and working.
This sort of works for a short period of time, but after a while I've got to the point where I've been hardly socialising, eating donuts and pizza at the office everyday, not exercising, and barely blogging for about a month now. These are all the things I love to do, and I've found that despite my busy-ness, if I don't make a little bit of time to do these things then it just makes me more stressed, not less.
I do love my job, for all its pains, and it's so easy to fall into that mode of taking pride in the stress, and feeling like the world will fall apart if you leave the office before 10pm because they just can't manage without you!
Things are starting to quieten down a bit for me now, and it's time to get back into good habits. More home cooking, less eating at my desk, going running even when I reeeeally don't want to, and above all making time to see my favourite people and do my favourite things.
I love the creativity of blogging, the buzz of creating a post you are really proud of and hitting publish, and I also love all of the interesting places it takes me to. I'm ashamed to say if it wasn't for this blog there would be so many times when I would just have stayed in, instead of going out and trying new things, but it gives me the push to get out of my comfort zone and do things I wouldn't do otherwise. I feel like I've got into a vicious circle of being too busy to do things, leading to no blog posts, leading to feeling depressed and blah about the blog, leading to not wanting to get out and try anything new!
So enough! The new leaf is officially turned over, I'm back on the wagon, all good things from now on! Probably. For a bit, at least!
