For the last several weeks I’ve been taking a lot of meetings. Trying to achieve a goal of getting a certain amount of hours completed for the purpose of collecting a bonus. Having goals can be good.
After achieving a goal, after obtaining a certain level or reaching a certain Plateau, I find it’s good to step back and take a break. Sit down. Reflect. Look around. Give yourself a different perspective. Allow the information, data, experience, did you just completed to Suttle. Like a snow globe oh, let the dust settle a little bit before you move on.
So today, after a two-month hard push, I’ve decided to reward Myself by attending a conference. Going to a little continuing education seminar so to speak. Yeah it’s still screen time, but it’s a completely different type of cognitive process. Shifting things up for my brain and my mind is good. It’s good for my mental wellness. It’s good for my overall physical health. It’s good for me.
I didn’t do things like that in the recent past. I had to learn to give myself permission to shift gears, change Focus, give myself a chance to really improve my overall mental Wellness.
