time, that thing you have (not)


Do I really have time to post? Hahahahaha… *read as delusional (and possibly slightly manic) laughter!*

I think one of my life’s mantras is definitely “you should sit in meditation for 20 minutes every day, unless you’re too busy; then you should sit for an hour”. Definitely that but replacing meditation with writing.  Yep, that’s it.

For the first time in what felt like months, last night I rested. First, I watched a film. As in, I just watched the film and nothing else. I didn’t knit nor checked my phone. I cuddled with Olivia because how could I not too, but that is in itself one of the most relaxing things ever!

And then I switched off the TV and turned the radio on and sat there for a while, absorbing the peace. I wrote a bit and felt so much better about things.

It was all going VERY well until I woke up at 4am (yes, that reads FOUR AM) and couldn’t get back to sleep. Because, you know, relaxing before bed apparently isn’t good for you or something. And so a very productive morning began, time-wise anyway.

And then tomorrow I will make that mantra a tad bit more real and go on a short break!

    Oh sounds like you’re have mad weeks as me! I actually have the opposite problem. I swear I fall asleep in 1 second. I’m so exhausted that by the time I go to bed, I only remember laying down and then wake up with the alarm clock. Takes me 1h to get out of bed!!!! Then feel miserable and don’t want to go to work, so totally relate with if you’re too busy you should do meditation for 1h!!! Oh yeah! This week I had quite a normal week and I was waiting for something to strike me up as it’s been months since I had a normal day at all. Ended up leaving work at 19h and going for dinner and drinks for 2 nights in a row in Bristol. But finally weekend is here! Hopefully you can have proper rest this weekend 😀
    All the best,
