I just wanted to post something today but I don’t really have a topic. I suppose it’s Monday. I’m just trying to get my arms around being the best Sharon I can be today.
I feel anxious this morning for no particular reason. Meditation helped. I’m recommitting to eating slowly and until I’m 80% full. I ate out a lot last week and over the weekend, so I’m looking forward to cooking my own stuff this week. Yesterday, I made roasted Brussels sprouts and winter squash, sprouted mung beans, brown rice and yellow split peas, stewed pears and grapes and multi-grain hot cereal to prep for the week.

It’s going to be warm this week. I’ll enjoy it while it’s here. I’ve been keeping up with my goal of 10,000 steps per day. It makes Ashok happy and keeps me moving even if my schedule is overwhelming. I’ve been strength-training a couple times a week. I’d like to go to 3 this week and get back to somewhat daily yoga.

I’m really working on staying in the present. Work is a lot right now. It’s challenging in a good way but still challenging. If I’m tired, I go to bed early. If I need exercise, I go for a walk. If I need a lift, I play some country music. If I feel alone, I schedule something with a friend or go to a meeting. If I need a healthy meal or a cup of tea, I take time to do that. If I need to escape, I read. I honestly feel pretty good about my self-care. It’s working.
What’s working for you right now?
