October was a productive month. I think I overworked myself and the universe wanted me to take a break, so in the first week of November, I was sick with a cold and a headache.
My mental health has been a top priority for me and so far, I’m doing great that I barely write on my journal anymore. I know I should continue writing despite things going well for me. I do still remember to be grateful. I just don’t write it as much.
I have been reading a lot of fiction lately and I’m starting to be a little all over the place in terms of organisation and productivity, so I continued reading Atomic Habits (now in November), and I’m finally done reading it. I really enjoyed it and I learned so much. I think I’m going to write a post about that book…we’ll see.
I’ve been going to the gym 3-4 times a week and I think that is one of the reasons why I’m feeling better about myself and my body. It really helps cope with stress and overthinking.
One thing that I’ve been struggling with is sleep. I just can’t bring myself to sleep early and it’s been affecting my morning. It’s harder to get up and as much as I want to be productive in the morning, the fact that I don’t wake up early ruins the motivation. I will keep trying though.
So, I’ve decided to join Nanowrimo this year. While I was so motivated and optimistic in October to start and finish a novel, I just lost that in the first week of November. After writing for 3 days straight, I just stopped. I think the fact that I didn’t develop the habit of writing everyday prior to Nanowrimo and the fact that I lost all motivation because I got sick, it was easy to just give up. I’m happy with what I’ve written so far, so perhaps I’ll continue at some point, but at this moment, my priority is my podcast and this blog.
