A productive weekend is a good weekend, but when a weekend whirlwind of productivity smashes into a hectic Monday, things get rough. I’m more of a sprinter than a marathon girl, so I get burnt out easily! I’m heading into the week feeling a little drained, but I’m trying to stay positive, productive, and sane as I face the rest of the week. My plan of attack:
- Sleep more. This blog might suffer a bit. The kitchen floor might not get cleaned as frequently. The world won’t end! Cranky and sleep-deprived is no way to go through life!
- Make time for relaxing activities at home. It’s hard to go from full-blown productive mode to sleep mode without a transition in between. Plus, taking a little time to enjoy life every day helps prevent burn-out.
- Re-prioritize. There are certain things that need to get done. (See above: sleep.) There are others that can can be scaled back and simplified–or pushed off to a less busy time. Acknowledge that your energy is finite, and strategize to get the most from your week.
I plan to continue blogging daily for the rest of the week, so you will find out in real time whether I make it to the end in one piece–or have a complete and total meltdown.
