I’m starting notice that when i wake up in the morning the first thing i do is reach for my phone and check my blog’s activity over night. At work, in my breaks, the 4G goes on and i check whats happened since i last looked, i also logged on at work so while i was working (cold calling) i could check, comment, update and read posts.
It’s a rainy Saturday morning here in Auckland, My partner is at work till 3pm and and i’m in bed with a brew, blogging and playing with my theme. Side note – what do you think of the change?
I should be filling in my teaching forms so i can get paid when i start my new job on Monday. Dragging myself away from the computer is becoming an issue! While i was trawling the never ending links from one blog to the next i found this post with some advice. Number 6 seems to be what i need to focus on. Getting the balance.
6. LOOK AFTER YOURSELF.
Don’t get green-eyed at other’s successes; question whether hitting refresh on your Twitter stream or Facebook news feed is doing any good for your mental health; go outside, take your phone and take some shots; bake; read; throw a tennis ball really, really hard against a wall; have a shower; go to a bar or cafe you’ve never been to before; paint your nails; dress up your cat or dog; watch some weird-but-wonderful YouTube videos.
Basically, if you feel the crazy coming on, step away from the internet for a while. It will still be there when you get back.
Is anyone else having this issue? I’m sure i can’t be alone.
So, I’m off to shower, fill in my important forms and bake some cakes. Stepping away……………………
