Less stress, more zen
I love September, I love the fall. I love the autumn rain, and the feeling of a new beginning. Although work tends to become more busy, I feel like it is time to quiet down. Less doing, more being.
But that being said...work has been incredibly busy in the last couple of weeks, and I've been way too stressed. I feel like I am struggling to keep my head above water. Actually, at the moment, it feels more like drowning....The main goal of this month is to find more zen at work.
Getting through this month with a postitive attitude is going to be challenging enough. But I will try. And I also want to use this time to improve my work habits.
I have such bad habits when it comes to work: I procrastinate, I stress, I do things last minute (and then want to do everything perfectly), I procrastinate some more.... So:
My September Resolutions
- process emails and all inboxes every day
- use my calander and to-do list every day
- declutter my office and my computer
- think positively about work, and about my contribution at work
- clear my desk everyday
- take time to focus on an important project
I've also been simplifying my past resolutions, and they now look like this:
meditate, write in my journal, blog, exercise, work on my co-dependency issues
(When I started exercising in June my goal was to be able to run 5k by the end of the summer. I just finished my first race and ran 5k in just under 30 minutes:))
declutter, make the bed, light a candle and/or play music, knit, do weekly groceries
sit down and play, watch my voice (no snapping), speak clearly, use cheat sheet from book (how to talk so your kids will listen....), vitamins in the morning
