I did something disruptive today.
I was soooo tired this morning. My alarm didn’t go off and I had to take the boy to school early so jumped up just in time. But, even after 2 cups of coffee I was getting sleepy again by 10am.
I had an outplacement call at 10:30 and couldn’t allow for a nap, but I didn’t really WANT to nap. I wanted to feel better.
So I tried something else – I got on the Peloton for 10 minutes and climbed a hill!
In 10 minutes my heart was racing and I was sweating and pushing myself!
Woke me right the fuck up!
The best news is that I was lively and engaged in my outplacement call and did really well in my SMART stories for my practice interviews!
10 minutes of sweat changed my entire outlook on my morning.
Something is starting to change, not a habit yet, but I am developing an apathy to being sickly/sleepy/sedentary anymore. I had my sick/down time and I have no reason to take it down so far again.
I’m just thrilled that 10 minutes activated me the the way it did!
