This is the fifth week on my journey of self-exploration, and I was busy as fuck.
I didn't eat as well as I normally do. I didn't exercise as much as I'd like to. My house got a bit messy, I wasn't very social, I was slow replying to emails, and I didn't get in any new activities.
I knew going into this week that things would be hectic, so I decided that my "new thing" for this week would just be to practice being kind to myself.
There are a million and one blog posts out there explaining how to do this, and I didn't read any of them. I'm also not going to write one here.
I'll just say that it was more difficult than I expected it to be, I wasn't completely successful at it, and I think this was one of the best endeavours I've tried since starting this project in July.
Being easy on myself is something I've never done well, but that I need to start doing for my own sanity. This was a good step in the right direction, but will take a while to implement fully, if I ever can. But you've gotta start somewhere!
This exercise is very internal, so I don't have much to say or show in relation to it. But I'd recommend giving it a try.
