Do you ever feel good, so wonderfully good that you think you can conquer the world? You do too much in one big hit and then you pay for it, coming down with a resounding crash. That's me, I've gone and over done it, again. You would think I would have learnt by now to pace myself, but no, my enthusiasm gets the better of me and off I go doing goodness knows what.
Perhaps I'm subconsciously making up for a long cold winter spell of achieving zilch and all the sunshine has gone to my head. I feel like I'm coming out of hibernation when the sun shines and I need to go and fatten up for any lean times ahead, figuratively speaking.
I think tomorrow I'll be slowing down my mind and body, going about the business of housework slowly with many cups of tea in between the bathroom cleaning and the vacuuming. Perhaps if I think calmly, I'll be calm and not worked up into a flurry. Sometimes this works for me when I'm running a bit late. I'll be driving in a highly anxious state and when I think about it, being anxious and uptight isn't going to get me to my destination any quicker so I might as well lower those shoulders that are hunched up around my chin, take a big breath and just breathe. Easier said than done isn't it? I'd love to know how others handle tendencies to over do things and how to slow down the mind and body.
