At this midway point of my internship, I am now reflecting on some of the goals I wanted to achieve through out the summer. I’ve noticed that it is all about the art of manifestation.
One of my major goals was to get into a routine. My initial trouble at the start of working was how tired I was. I usually spent my summers lounging and losing track of time so this was not only a big change but it was a necessary change to be successful. But I had a few issues due to not being a morning person. For example, I was waking up past my alarm a lot by pressing my snooze button more than once. I would end up rushing out of my house deciding if walking or taking the bus (factoring the heat at times) would be a better choice, just missing the regularly scheduled shuttle provided at my apartment. Go Sal. And coming home from work, especially after such hectic starts to the day, I was just so tired. I’d rest and wake up into the start of the night. A horrible routine was forming. To combat this, I started to drink way more water and take some dietary supplements. They have been working well but progress is not linear. My situation is complex, as everyones, with a couple of health issues so I’ve been learning to pay more attention and value to them in relation to working. This new transition of 9 to 5 working has indeed been a journey. Gratefully, my body is much more used to the waking up early and the loads of walking I have been doing has given me an tiny exercise regime. This week, I am adding a new addition to my routine: a morning run. I admit to being a bit anxious but lately, I have been listening to a great podcast (Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations) and reciting mantras of I am. If I am going to be this routined, energized person, I have to start truly believing it is possible. I’ll elaborate more on my next post 🙂
