The time you have – even with Daylight Savings Time impacting routines – doesn’t really change.
You only have the time everyone else has. 24 hours in a day (on average). 7 days a week. 365 days a year (except for the Leaps.) We didn’t really lose an hour, the hour we gained in the fall just evened out. That doesn’t help your body adjust, but it is still a universal truth of physics. Kind of like the conservation of matter or energy.
There is only so much energy to expend and you (and your health) matter.
You can’t do it all in one day, one week or even in one year.
Eventually, you will have to take a break. Take a breath. Take time off. Decide what is most important and so on down the chain; set the things aside that you don’t think are important. They can be done later. Of course, taxes are not probably high on your list, but they still have to be done. That is a friendly PSA and reminder to those who are still procrastinating.
You should also:
- get that test
- go see your primary care doctor
- join a class that helps you de-stress and participate in some kind of exercise
- have your teeth cleaned
- see your friends
- see your family
- reach out to someone you haven’t talked to in a while
- go on that vacation you have been postponing
Every day matters and the time you have here, or there is all we get. Make the most of it.
