The most obvious time of the year!
Do you often feel dizzy and light-headed? Are you often red in the face? Have your fingers ever turned blue?
You need to try….breathing.
Breathing is a 100% effective at keeping you alive, it’s free and easy to do, and all jobs require you to be able to breathe.
Try breathing today – satisfaction guaranteed!
Some of you more youtube-y people might recognise the Jon la Joie reference (too rude to post!) – however it’s funny how sometimes the obvious thing, that you know will make a situation better, is often avoided.
Take sleep, you know you need it, you know it’s important, but how many students have not enough sleep, or a bad sleep routine? It’s obvious that you need rest, but not everyone does it, and no one does it all the time.
Or people know that smoking is bad for them, or that they should try and eat some fruit and veg, that whatever friendship or work situation is unhealthy or unpleasant – but it’s not addressed for a plethora of reasons. It’s human, I think.
Well, I do it.
Anyway, this term has been very stressful, and I needed a break and to get away. But it took me quite a while to get there and see the obvious.
But in the end I found the answer:
So I had a lovely weekend with Gram 🙂
Cream-filled mince pies
And Chinese chequers – one of my favourite board games ever!
I needed it, and it was obvious…but I was in denial. However it was lovely, we had a three fish roast, and I read a load of no. 1 ladies detective agency books – which are really nice stories and great to relax with. Me and Gram also did lots of chatting – of course.
Now one more week, Christmas prep, a few more deadlines, a dissertation plan to check through, a carol service, the hobbit (so. excited.), a family meal, a house Fakemas meal, a couple more sensory tests, a tad more statistics, then HOME.
Not much then – but time is ticking- advent chocolates well and truly underway 🙂
Hope you’re all seeing the obvious and having a merry advent!
