I need to make a project of myself again. I don’t know how I do it but about every six months, I realize my life sucks and I need to work on some things.
Well, I am back in that rut so I am trying to decide what I need to change.
I think my main problem is procrastination. I have stopped living in the now and let myself get back to the exhausted, fat, chronically late person I can be when I get depressed.
So, how to fix this.
1. Live in the now!
I don’t know how I put things off so much but I do. “If you are finished with the dish then you should wash it.” My dishes are sitting in the sink until they mold. I need to get back to doing things as soon as I see they need to be done and not two weeks later.
2. Sleep better.
I wake up ten minutes before I need to go to work. I need to get to bed earlier and get up earlier. Getting to sleep at 2:00 a.m. and having to be at work by 7:00 a.m. does not get you eight hours of sleep. I am going to set my clock for 6:00 a.m. and get up, no snooze button for thirty minutes until I am late.
3. Dress more professionally.
When I am this tired and depressed I dress like I feel, washed out and wrinkled. So, I am going to start setting out my clothes the night before while I still have energy and am awake so there is no excuse.
4. Work on my writing.
Writing is what keeps me sane. I know this and yet I have not been writing for the last few months much at all. I need to fix this. To do this I have started a writing blog that is private where I can post and edit my writing.
5. Do something!
Too much of my time is spent sitting down. Now that the weather is cooling off, I need to get outside more. I can walk Stella-Bee to the park and it would make us both happy. This one can start this weekend and we will go from there. I am calling to cancel my cable back down to basic since I am not watching TV anyway so I will have no excuse not to get out of the house.
Well this is my manifesto for the rest of the year. I will have to see just how much I can stick to it.
