Travel Tip 4: Take care of yourself

Right now I am working on the road and have a realization that one or more of the following has happened:

  1. I wasted my one day off in a month catching up on a project.

  2. I haven’t had more than 5 1/2 hours sleep a night since…I am too tired to remember.

  3. Good intentions of going to the gym daily has turned into weekly.

  4. I have not been outside for 4 days, unless you count that little gap between the boarding tunnel and the airplane.

  5. Worst of all there is a looming, stressful, deadline and instead of doing the required work, I am writing on my blog site!

Yes to all the above, so I suppose it is time to do something about it.  Tonight I will go to bed at a decent hour, dreaming about that day off.  Tomorrow I will get up and go to gym before heading my meetings.  In the afternoon I ‘ll work on projects and take a walk outside along the ocean’s edge.

This is familiar territory for me.  I am a busy person and occasionally my schedule jams.  When this happens I stop, re-evaluate, and take care of myself.  I will ever be that zen, balanced, and relaxed person people say I should be.  The best I can do is occasionally crash with exhaustion and take a bubble bath.  Perhaps living at a breakneck-pace-and-crash is my balance?  For sure I am not going to be upset with myself or feel guilty for the life I lead.  That would only be another item on the list anyway.
