I pride myself on being able to push through. I have run hundreds of miles in tough terrain.
But this pandemic flexes different muscles.
A few weeks ago I wasn’t feeling well. Zoom fatigue, not enough fresh air, groundhog day. I wasn’t sure but that was my best guess.
As I shared with my wife Blake, she said, why don’t you cancel a couple of meetings this afternoon and lie down.
I’ve pushed through that feeling in a non-pandemic era many times before.
I thought maybe this time I should listen to my body and my wife and take a break.
I canceled the meetings. I lied down. I felt better later that day and much better after a good night’s sleep.
It’s ok to struggle, it’s ok to take a break, we all need one.
The kick in the pants you need. Sign-up for a better start to your work day.
