I need to find that balance between burning the midnight oil and getting up with the chickens. I have reached the age when I can no longer do both.
So, how do I make that happen? I work full time and frequently have multiple evening activities.
Last night it was almost 10:30 before I got to sit down at the computer and deal with the list I’d made throughout the day. That meant I didn’t get to bed until well after midnight.
Needless to say that, when the alarm went off this morning, I told myself that getting enough sleep was more important than going to the gym to swim.
But, reality is, both are important.
Yes, I’ll get in a healthy walk today at lunchtime. And yes, I turned down a donut this morning (okay I did have one last night). But swimming helps keep my arthritis in check. And I like to be able to move, and walk even.
There’s a balance there somewhere. And it probably comes with prioritizing and better time management during the day.
I’ll put that on my list.
Right now, I’m late for work.
