STARTING OVERI've decided today is a good time to make a new start. Since I 'm self-employed (after a fashion), I can't be laid off as so many have been in the past few months. But I could lose my livelihood all the same. When the economy hits a difficult spot, the non-essentials are laid aside for a while. Unfortunately, that's me. Besides being a writer I'm a piano teacher. Piano lessons are optional, so I've been losing students. A lot of people are now thinking about retraining so they can be hired somewhere else. I'm going to do the same... Sort of.
What I'm going to do is start over. Remake myself.
STAGE A COME-BACK.
The very first thing to do is set some goals.
1 - Commit to walking at least five times a week, either on the treadmill or around the block. Not only will I start feeling better--so I've been told--but I might catch up to Jaime and Lori-ann on our Virtual Walking Tour. Ha! I've done terrible so far. Besides, I've heard exercise helps the thinking process--an added bonus, because it's really hard to write when you can't think clearly.
2 - Start eating better. No more junk food that saps the energy and shuts down the brain. How can you write when you're asleep on your computer?
- See my sidebar for all the great stuff on healthy eating.
3 - Drink more water. Supposed to help with the fuzzy brain.
Feeling and thinking better, so I can get past the staring at the computer screen, seems to me to be the best place to start.
