The day starts, the day ends. What happened in the middle? Maybe even you don't even know.
The reason for this post is not to get you thinking about if you did or didn't have a productive day. It's not to have you get that yellow pad out and see how much of your checklist got completed. And I fully expect that what it on your checklist is both work issues and life issues too.
Did you do anything for your personal well being? Did you take just a few minutes to have a personal chat with a friend? Did you commute to work and maybe play some music instead of listening to the news? There is no single answer for anyone as to what is required for mental health, but that is what we should all think about.
A number of years ago, my Tums consumption was too high. My stomach kept churning. Once I realized I was churning over all I had to get done, finding the traffic controls for me - and taking the deep cleansing breath- was a key step to keeping that bottle safely tucked away in my drawer. (Perspective on what I had to get done and when was also key. Nothing is all that easy! )
I'm fortunate to have been taught to take the occasional and appropriate Traffic Control.
