This week I am trying to get myself back on track. The holidays really have a way of throwing you off your normal routine and once that happens it can be difficult to course correct.
The week of Christmas I help out at a friends artisanal cheese shop making holiday cheese and charcuterie platters. It is a lot of hours and all of my usual schedules go right out the window. I may not meditate, I may not workout, I may not eat at a regular time and I definitely do not get to adhere to my sleep schedule. And then the holiday itself happens. I usually need a few days afterwards just to get my body back to feeling like it normally does.
During that time I can be a bit hard on myself that I’m not getting everything done that I should be. Everyone’s schedule is thrown off during the holidays and there is nothing we can do about it. We can however be gentle on ourselves and acknowledge we are off course and will get back on track.
So go easy on yourself if you feel thrown off. Acknowledge that you are and make a plan to get back on track.
