Last month was a hell of a busy month for me. A dead run from start to finish, working on two projects and three events all with October deadlines. I am not saying some of it wasn’t great fun, but still it was a lot. I know, I know, it’s surely a first world problem to have too much work at my own small business, so I certainly am not complaining about that.
What I could have lived without and still am not complaining about is the reminders that I’m not as young as I used to be: newly persistent pain in my heel and my knee from … well, I have no idea, actually. The continued diminishing of my “night owl” past when I could just spend a few late nights catching up. The new-this-season allergies when I’m working on outdoor events. (Bah. Okay. Maybe a little complaining.)
Anyway, now I’m done with all those deadlines, and finding it a bit hard to recharge and head once more into the breach. It’s not like I don’t still have a ton to do, just don’t have drop-dead dates looming large. No time for a vacation, but have to get reinvigorated.
What do you do to recharge? How do you get on with it when you’re tapped out?
