Over this last week, a number of people have expressed their concern for me. It seems that my inner angst is not as hidden as I hoped! I’m tired and tense with a spinning, aching head.
I was encouraged to think about activities which are restorative. I realised that writing this blog – focusing my mind and losing myself in a single task – is something which renews and refreshes me, and helps me to develop the resilience I need for day-to-day living.
Walking round a lake, riding my bike or going for a swim are other re-creative activities.
I am planning to start cycling to work again this week. The cold weather and a temporary office move meant I’ve not cycled to work for a while and I miss it.
I need to ensure I make time for restorative activities and to avoid the things that perpetuate the metaphorical and physical head-spinning.
Thank you for reading.
