Funhouse mirrors used to entertain people and now we can do the same sort of thing with an instant filter on a camera. I’ve been busy this week, with few chances to take a break—even though I’ve often encouraged people to take breaks and even posted about it the other day!
My main issue this week revolved around other people driving my daily agenda. From places I needed to be, to meetings, I found myself moving from one place to another without pausing. I still have one more day (working tomorrow), and even then I’ll be busy on the weekend. It’s rare that I have a day with no demands on my time. With such restrictions on my time, it’s more important than ever to find ways to devote at least some time to my own health and mental well-being.
To do that, I walk. I meditate. I read for enjoyment. I even watched some TV this week, The Flash and Arrow. I have a lot to do to get ready for the new semester, which is starting soon. I’ve also been listening to Divergent by Veronica Roth. I’ve enjoyed it! I had seen the first movie, so some elements are familiar even though they’ve changed many things. I plan to listen to more in the series.
I’m trying to keep my streak going as far as the posts go. I won’t always have much to post about, given the time available, but I at least wanted to check in.
