Today, I am writing to myself things I already know, choosing to acknowledge my current realities and remind myself that this too shall pass.
Acknowledgement — I am constantly busy pursuing a goal or up to something important per time.
Adeola, remember that it is absolutely okay to take a break, a long stretch of hours doing “nothing” so to speak.
- Take a break: It’s essential to take breaks throughout the day to rest your mind and body. Go for a walk, read a book, or take a nap if possible. Even a short break can help refresh you.
- Get enough sleep: Make sure you are getting enough sleep at night. Aim for 7–9 hours of sleep per night, and try to stick to a consistent sleep schedule.
- Exercise: Regular exercise can help improve your energy levels and reduce stress. Even a short walk or workout can make a difference.
- Eat well: Make sure you are eating a balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. Avoid processed foods and sugary snacks, which can cause energy crashes. Stay hydrated at all times.
- Manage stress: Find healthy ways to manage stress, such as meditation, yoga, or deep breathing exercises. Try to prioritize self-care and relaxation in your daily routine.
Remember, it’s important to take care of yourself so that you can continue to be productive and successful in the long run. Most importantly, infuse these breaks into your routine so it becomes regular & normal. This consistency will help you stay constantly fresh, alert and sane-minded at all times.
ps — I used AI to come up with the half the things I wrote here, can you guess the part I wrote using AI?
