You could stop and meditate.   This has helped my focus because stopping and sitting still and breathing and listening allows me to really regain my center again.  The strings of unfinished thoughts pop up and my mind begins to settle again.  Don’t be surprised if at first you fall asleep for a quick nap.  Over time your body learns that this deep breathing is to relax not to sleep.

5. When I’m REALLY tired, I make like Rosie and take a cat nap.  She is great at this…I am learning. I will set my alarm on my phone and lie down to rest like a worn out four year old.  I feel so much less grouchy when I’ve been able to take a 20 minute snooze.  Get up, drink some water and off you go. So much more alert!

  1. Thank you for these tips. Sometimes you feel so busy that you tell yourself you can’t even spare 10 minutes to get up. Self care is massively important and once you start practicing the people in your life will be full of gratitude!

  2. Best post yet!!! Today I am taking “sitting…down…quietly…to rest” to heart! Thank you + I am calling to later to hear about that team of doctors! Needing some advise! xxooo

    1. The team of doctors were with a place called the Pre-diabetes center in Houston that has now folded up operation and is in Austin. I wish there was another but you could call the one in Austin and apparently they can help through a long distance program. I’m thinking about doing that because it was just great.

    1. Thank you! My Kitties and Sam, my French always want to be involved in the blog photos….usually I’m having to ask them to move out of the way to watch. I thought Lilly, the black and white one was going to burn a whisker on the tea photos but I snapped her coming out the kitchen window and she looked too cute to leave out. Rosie was just napping. All of my pets are girls to balance out all of the boys/men in my life.
