Hey everyone, how are you?
It’s the start of a new week, after what has been a different weekend.
Today is the first day in a new week, after an interesting weekend. Where I was in hospital, for a while. It means that I did not get much writing done over the weekend. But in the long term, my health is more important. So, I want to spend the start of the new week, resting and catching up on the writing that I could not do over the weekend. This means that I will be writing and writing as I feel as though I have so much to do. The main thing that I need to not do is get myself overwhelmed. As that will just be counterproductive. And could land me back in the hospital again. I need to focus on the book chapter as I have a meeting for it on Wednesday. I have started to write the section that I am currently writing and I have the academic journals and have read most of them. I will need to read some more but I know where I am going to go with it. I also have the mind maps that will guide me with the writing.
I do have a phone call in the afternoon, from the emergency mental health service. They had agreed to call me before I ended up in hospital. So, that will be an interesting conversation to have. It will be something that will help to break up the day and it will be good to talk about it. This does not mean that the conversation will be easy, but it will be good. Whilst I am writing, I will probably listen to some music or a podcast to have as background music. It will be better than having the television on or being sat in silence. As I have found recently, that I can get distracted by both of these things. And having music or a podcast on I think will be better for me. As I always use to listen to music when I was studying.
I also want to get on with some more reading and drumming today. I didn’t do any reading when I was in the hospital. I had the time to read, but I didn’t want to do anything whilst I was there. And reading, especially, felt like something that would be really hard to concentrate on. I also want to do some drumming and get back into practicing three times a week. I didn’t practice yesterday and I did miss it. Also when I practised on Saturday evening I wasn’t in a good enough place and it had just felt like a chore, which is something that I do not want it to become. So, I want to get back into drumming for fun and as practice. As I was doing so well, that I do not want to throw all of that away.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
