Unplugging and Commitment
I’ve been listening to the book burn out by Emily Nagoski about stress cycles.
She talks about how people get caught in these loops and it literally burns them out.
Burns away motivation
Burns away energy
Even burns away the minerals in your body to cope with stress
TAA book I talk about eating so many cups of veggies to replenish minerals and resting.
Today I had a big meeting moved and I had a huge chunk of time.
My head was spinning with all the things I need to get done and holy shit everything is an emergency.
I found myself completely resistant to doing anything.
So after fighting myself for about 45 minutes, I gave myself full permission to just, chill.
I grabbed a snack, downloaded past episodes from Project Runway I haven’t seen, and just vegged.
After about 45 minutes, guess what happened? I felt motivated to take action.
I was able to let go and process and breathe without driving myself like a machine.
It doesn’t have to be perfect
Just get it done
Result ahead of time for motivation
