Denial: Pause, Evaluate, Determine, Act

Sometimes it takes a while to realize some things and it’s better now than never right?

In the past few weeks, I have been a little bit off. I made mistakes, forget to do things, been frustrated with things I used to be able to do and learn with ease and now it is just not going as well as it used to.

Sometimes I forget I’m approaching the 40’s, I am slowly realizing that if you don’t change your rhythm, things will start to fall apart. As you age, you can’t do as many things with the same intensity.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying I am old but I came to realize, that I can’t continue on the same rhythm than when I was 20 years old.

Could it be my body telling me something? Maybe 6-hour sleep every night isn’t enough? Maybe I try to do too many things? Something’s gotta give when you’re exhausted one day or another.

When you are tired and try to do too many things, you end up not being able to focus fully on them and the things you used to enjoy and love doing slowly feel like a burden. You become to think that you’re not good, you lose patience for stupid reasons, you just start to be depressed and want to hide.

I may be in denial of what my body is telling me, but realization is the first step to fix things and for my next step I intend to stop looking at my phone before bed. Yes, I am guilty of looking if there’s something new on Instagram, Facebook or even look if I have new views on my blog which end most of the time in a waste of time. This could be 15 to 30 mins more sleep I could get.

If you’re are in the same situation, what will you do to help yourself get more rest?

We need to pause, evaluate, determine the problem and act on it!
