Hey everyone, how are you?
This week is going to be busy and I am still feeling as though I am spiralling down.
I have three meetings today, so, it is going to be a long day in front of a computer screen. The first meeting is in the morning and then I am going straight into another one. I will then be able to have a break until early afternoon when the third one starts. The first meeting is for the book chapter and should not take long, as we are hoping to submit it today. I don’t think it will take longer than half an hour. And then that will be one project done, until the editor gets back to us with changes. The second and third meetings I cannot day too much about because of confidentiality. I can tell you that they are both an hour long and it will be good to talk.
It is the start of a busy week and I know that when I am done with the meetings, I will have other things to do. I have writing that I need to complete and drum practice to do. I don’t know if I will manage to get it all done in one day, but I am going to try. I will, in the morning, write my to do list for this week and I know that it is going to be long. I am going to make sure that I take a few minutes every now and then to have a break and move away from the screen for a while.
Like I mentioned at the start, my mental health is still starting to spiral down. And at the moment I am still finding some enjoyment in things, but it is dwindling. I think it is partly because of all the anxiety that I had last week with having to have a covid test. And that it has just worn me out and my mood has dipped because of it. I am sleeping ok but it could be better. And I know that once I stop sleeping that things will start to deteriorate quickly. So, I need to make sure that I continue to sleep. Although, that is something that is easier said than done. I really don’t want a depressive downer and I am trying to at least limit it, but I don’t know if I will be successful.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
