I’m running more often. I know that is not something new or changing, okay it is changing because I am trying to do it more often. But believe it or not, I am making some changes. I believe we all need to make changes every once in a while. I think it keeps us on our toes and out of the rut. I’m speaking from experience because if you have been reading along for a while you know that I have been in a rut but have recently climbed my way out.
- Started shutting down my computer and getting away from the TV to read for at least an hour before I go to sleep. (I know this sounds like info you have heard over and over but it really works. I sleep better and I love completing a new book, a great sense of accomplishment!)
- I am taking my work a little less seriously. Not working with people but meeting the numbers. We are supposed to schedule appointments with at least 30 people and meet with 23 as a minimum. Well I’ve learned, I have no control over cancellations (especially during the summer because oddly enough people don’t want to do therapy in the summer!). So unfortunately my numbers have declined but I didn’t get into this business to hit numbers, I got into this business to help people.
- Probably one of the most beneficial things has been to run without music. I know, weird right! I didn’t think I could do it. But my ipod has been temperamental for the past two months so I haven’t used it. (so basically this was a forced event but it is good) I recently completed a 10 mile run and it was awesome. It was fast for me and I enjoyed it all, I didn’t even miss my music like I thought I would. I am wondering if I can do my next marathon without music but I will try my next half marathon in October and let you know how it goes.
