The past few months I’ve felt so rushed and busy that I’ve not really looked after myself and even got quite sick for a few weeks (which, of course, gives me more to catch up on and feel anxious an stressed about). Drop One/Add One is supposed to help me to improve my life and how I feel, but the fact is that I’ve felt so run down that sometimes it has just felt like one extra thing to remember to do, one extra pressure I’ve put on myself. Even when it’s not anything active or very time consuming, my brain has sometimes added it to all the other things swirling around my head and turned it into a negative rather than a positive.
In short, I’ve been feeling fairly run-down.
So last week I dropped this. I just had a weekend of doing whatever. I didn’t have to be good or mindful or productive or positive or active or eat a certain way or tell myself kind things or hop around on one foot for an hour and have it transform my life.
It was good to have a rest. Sometimes, the best thing is just to do whatever.
