Starting Over

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

Yesterday I started a journal to organize my life and get things organized to start over. I've been trying so hard in too many areas with little direction that I've lost my sleep schedule. Nothing's been getting accomplished but sore muscles and general exhaustion and depression.

Now it's time to start over. Sleep is my first priority. I'm taking prescribed sleeping meds to get my sleep schedule back in order. I got a new bed yesterday and last night's sleep was awesome. I've scheduled my daily activities and writing everything down to see where I can improve and making exercise sessions in small spurts so I don't hurt myself. Meals are planned and only one cup of coffee a day. More water is another priority.

I hadn't been making time to put things away, making me feel overwelmed and I've already cleared away quite a bit of that. Things are looking up!

I've realized it's time to stop and smell the flowers, to ease up and go at a natural pace for me. That's what I'm going to do. Good luck to me and all of you who find yourself in too deep and going nowhere.

    It sounds like you are doing a lot of wonderful things to manage your life better, and I like your suggestion to go at a natural pace. So often we push ourselves too hard and too fast and end up nowhere. Thanks for the insight!

    Good for you! Regrouping can be very constructive. I have had sleep problems too and now use all those tips they tell you to maintain regular sleep. The occasional bout of poor sleep is manageable.
