Sorry about that break there, guys. The cold weather hit and my hormones decided they weren’t going to help me out any more. Every time this year I hit the most emotional and mental low and I just…can’t.
I stop being able to focus, I only want to sleep, I watch TV far too much and I definitely can’t get out to run.
My expert diagnoses (sarcasm) has pinpointed this issue as SAD – Seasonal Affective Disorder which, for me, basically means I’m not getting enough vitamin D.
It doesn’t help that I work in a dark cave all day.
So yeah. I’m fine now. But it always takes awhile to turn back on. The first thing to come back is going to the gym, after that it’s running and then I just gradually add on more and more so that I’m back to normal.
The fact that I’m back to blogging means I’m at my peak and the dip can happen again any week. We’ll see.
I’m currently watching a documentary on Minimalism (on Netflix) after spending a few hours watching a docuseries (also on Netflix) called Broken.
Seriously fantastic. I highly suggest it. The next thing I’m going to do is re-watch the Marie Kondo house organizing series. I love her.
This whole day has me so inspired to start using less plastic, more reusable containers, buy less stuff and live more deliberately.
So then I started thinking about what I really wanted to do with my life. What I really want to focus on and be deliberate about.
So coming into 2020 I’m going to be more deliberate about fitness (general health really) and travel. I’m going to spend less money and plan great places to go. I’m not going to buy things on a whim and I’m going to keep track of what I buy and why I buy it so that I can eliminate excess spending.
Sorry it took me so long to get back on the horse but my mental health is back where I need it to be and I have so many things to look forward to in the future!
Have a great evening!
