Not feeling well?
On Saturday I woke up and did not feel quite right. In my normal style I tried to push on, but it became very clear early on to me that I was not going to be able to push my way through the day. In the early afternoon I decided to crash and burn and rest up. So back to bed I went and slept a few extra hours. Now this is not my normal way to do things as I am the sort of person that does not rest well.
So what was the result?
Within twelve hours I was back to normal, just about. My wife even commented that I was calmer and looked rested. This was a good thing as on the Sunday I had plenty to do, including a meeting in Yass for the Central Australia Project and University studies. It became clear to me that rest was actually the quickest option to recovery.
In trying to stay healthy I believe that sleep, exercise, a good diet (including vitamins), management of stress levels and a positive mental attitude are all keys elements. I am not the best at looking after myself in these areas and certainly need to pull up my socks in all areas but the positive mental attitude. So that is my challenge….
