I had a productive day today.

I swam extra lengths at the pool to release tension. I didn’t over-shop at the supermarket as I looked in the fridge before heading out. I did my laundry and made a nutritious and healthy lunch. I thought I was going to be late for my choir session at church but I actually ended up early. It poured down with rain but only when I was driving in my car. I bought a cute sweater on sale that I had been eyeing for weeks. I cooked a Thai green curry for dinner and it tasted good. I cleaned the house and prepared for the week ahead. I watched some episodes of my current binge-worthy series and a documentary. I am now winding down in bed while listening to a podcast.

Sometimes it’s the little things which promote a sense of satisfaction and contentment.

I never used to be the kind of person who set reminders on my phone but I have found it to be helpful in my new found busy lifestyle.

Amidst making plans, travelling, exchanging currency, and weddings, there are simpler, less interesting tasks. I found myself entering things like ‘put card in bag’ and ‘get lunch from fridge’. These silly little tasks have increasingly become things which I will easily forget because of my hectic lifestyle.

In recent weeks I have become much more stressed from work, so much so that my body is close to giving point. My sleeping pattern has worsened yet my focus on work has increased, and my work outs have risen in frequency. My personal projects are productive and I have managed to balance a multitude of things. I am due to go to the doctors tomorrow morning so hopefully I am able to cross off any illnesses and place the blame solely on stress. A reminder to always put emphasis on taking care of yourself and your own wellbeing!
