I am the busiest at work I have ever been. Ever! I have considered working on my days off, skipping the gym and basically putting my life on hold until I feel caught up. Then I go home to my husband and pets and realize that’s ridiculous! They are what life is about. I need social interactions, love, exercise, rest and fun outside of the office to get through the work day! 10 minutes of chatting with Chris, while snuggling with my furry family members seems to wipe the slate clean. Backed up with a good nights sleep and I not only stop obsessing about my to-do list, I can’t even remember it! It’s easy to get caught up in the craziness of life. I’m thankful to have an 11 week old puppy that won’t let me forget how important play, exercise, relationships and relaxation are! He will bite me, pee on the floor or steal something until we shift our attention. Right now, I need that kind of consequence to stay on track! The rewards of following his lead are pretty sweet too!
