On A Personal Note

Happy Monday! It is a new week and new beginnings. Is it just me or is October flying by fast as well?? I need these months to stop going by too fast okay. Lately I have been in my feeling about just about everything lol. I don’t know why but I’ve been overthinking, over analyzing, and getting myself a little overwhelmed. I think a lot of it has to do with the lack of breaks and lunch at work. I know I have worked in establishments that have been super busy but there was always time for lunch or small breaks here and there. Where I currently am, I’m noticing that majority of the staff will work the entire day, 9-5 and sometimes later without eating or taking a proper lunch. Like is this normal in some work places? You work with no breaks or lunch or anything? I don’t know why I am having such a hard time but I’m just so used to having a scheduled lunch and not working straight through the day without eating anything or taking a break from looking at the computer screen all day. There have been days that all I had is coffee and water all day and didn’t eat anything. This isn’t normal for me and I just want to find a way to have that time away from my desk and have a break to eat and chill a bit before getting back to work.

I think that has been the thing that has been really getting to me. It is just the way my day is set up where I am literally working the from the time I clock in to the time I clock out and it just seems like it is non stop. I know I can find a way to make space for small breaks and lunch. I know I don’t want to sit in my office but it is starting to get cooler out and I can’t take breaks in my car as it get colder. I know I will find a way. Other than that, I’ve been doing okay. I am still trying to figure out my daily schedules, time for myself and self care. I feel like I am trying to rush things again because I am in need of it but I can’t rush things that may time time to develop. I just need to take things one day at a time and things will work themselves out.

How are you? How are things? Let’s chat.

  1. No it’s not normal not to take breaks… Seems like you have to start the norm..key is you being able to hit your days targets and still create a breather for you.

    You can step out for some minutes intentionally. Start with the bathroom, then the car, then just outside get out take a walk.
