Things have been a roller coaster over the past few months. Luckily my health has been getting better since I took the time off. I’ve been sending out e-mails and making phone calls to get things straight.
The health challenge seems to get worse when I’m hyper focused and very active, and it slows down when I slow down. So during this time off I need to learn how to develop a balanced life style. Everything from eating more fruits and veggies, and getting more exercise. Staying on a better sleep schedule is vital as well.
Exercise has never been my forte, and I’ve never been good at being consistent with it. The chronic fatigue can make it a little difficult to be fully active like I want to be. However, I need to at least try to start that up again. 😉
Self-care is extremely important during this time period. When I started the internship, I jumped in head first. It was going good until the middle of the semester. I wasn’t getting much sleep, kept getting stressed and anxious, worried about external validation, and none of that was good. I need to work on communication skills, and solving problems head on.
This time I need to be prepared and ready to come in strong and balanced! Being able to self-validate will be necessary so I can thrive. Anyone that’s dealing with a health challenge or any type of crisis in life, stay optimistic and make sure to surround yourself with positive people. Be well everyone! ❤
