Stop. Breathe. Reboot.

The last few weeks have been a bit of a bummer for me. I stopped working out and started eating poorly. I stopped writing. I let work pile up and missed silly details that should have been easy to catch. I haven’t read anything for fun. I just haven’t been able to  get it together. Not surprisingly, I’ve been crankier than usual and feeling incredibly unmotivated.

So, this morning I made a decision. I was going to stop. Breath. And reboot. I wasn’t going to let a few weeks of bad habits and poor decisions erase all of the hard work I’ve been doing over the last several months to be healthier, more productive, and generally happier. I realized that there was no reason I couldn’t start again, pick up where I left off, and keep moving forward. Maybe I took a little detour, but that happens. Starting today, I’m back on track.

I know I’m not the only one who has ever felt this way. It’s so easy to believe the excuses we make for ourselves: “I don’t have any time.” “I’m just too tired.” “I’ll get to it tomorrow.” But we don’t have to fall to into those traps. And when we do, we don’t have to stay there. All it takes is one moment to stop. Breath. And reboot. This is that moment.

Let’s do this thing!
