I felt lazy today. I wanted to take a nap. Usually, I would have obeyed that command, but I decided I wouldn’t give in. It was already too late into the evening and if I fell asleep, it would have been practically night.
I wanted to go to the gym, but laziness was taking me over.
I Decided To Go Anyway
I put on my gym clothes and drove to the gym. I knew once I got there, I would feel immediately better. I didn’t push myself too much at the gym. I did a brisk, light workout of about twenty minutes and drove right back.
Taking a Break Grounds and Relaxes Me
It was only twenty minutes, but I felt refreshed and raring to go. I got home and took a hot, relaxing shower. I plopped on the sofa and flipped open my laptop. I sent out a couple emails and last minute tasks I could complete before heading to sleep.
Sometimes, all I need is to take a break to ground myself. A break helps me to break the monotony and give my brain some much needed rest. This way, when I’m in work mode, I’m way more productive.
How do you ground yourself? Do you have any tips? Please share with me in the comments.
