Overwhelmed and readjusting

Sunrise from the bedroom of my room in Mexico…definitely not my room in St. Paul. Adjusting back to real life has not been easy. It has not been fun. Even with a good year end review at work I’m not feeling my best.

I’m hoping that with yoga sculpt Friday and Saturday morning I’ll start to feel more like myself. I’ll get the rest of my apartment cleaned up, the mail read and responded to, and my homework completed. Oh yeah, and I want to have some fun too.

I get that a week of no responsibility is a vacation and not real life, but I’m feeling the weight of responsibility a little harder than I would like to. So now I need to figure out how to adjust life. Shift responsibilities so that I feel good/better/at my best. I’m not quite sure what needs to change, so hopefully as I make tweaks I’ll get a better idea.

What do you change when things don’t seem to be working?

  1. It’s tough to come back from an obligation-free week of vacation and jump back into work. It doesn’t help that you are working full time plus doing grad school classes. When I get overwhelmed I try to carve out time for myself to do things I enjoy. I need to be better about doing that as I’m always so willing to fill my calendar with obligations but I’m not so good at making time for myself. I’m an introvert so I need those downtimes to recharge my battery. But I sound like a broken record when I say I need to carve out more time for myself!!

    • I usually go to yoga on Saturday mornings, but my favorite teacher isn’t scheduled so instead of attending the sub class I’m in bed starting homework. Hopefully it will let me enjoy Saturday afternoon a bit more. I also went to a movie with friends last night and was in bed fairly early. A lot of my stress if the unknown of dating, which I need to let go.
