I’ve been feeling burned out, and was considering taking December completely off to get my energy back.
But it occurred to me that I’m already good at taking time completely off. And I’ve got mad skills for (over)working at a breakneck speed.
What I’m NOT good at is a consistent, moderate pace.
So instead of taking the month off, I decided to take December to start building much-needed moderation habits.
When I shared my thought process with my mom, she responded, “Live your life in a way that doesn’t require you to recover from it.”
Mom nailed it in 14 words, and it’s my new mantra.
