Whew. Well, June was fun!
(Is it just me or did that line lose a lot of its awesomeness after the whole Borat scene??? Wayne’s World did it first, and they did it best… 🙂 )
I think stress management is going to be the name of the game for July. June problems won’t be going away just yet and I’ve got a veritable ton of creative stuffs to knock out over the next 30 days, so the way I see it, the best I can really do is figure out a way to manage the chaos so that I can make it through the month and actually have a few things to show for it! That was really my problem for June, anyways – the stress just kept on building and building all month, and I really didn’t have a good way to deal with it, so often times it ended up impacting the things that I wanted to do in a negative way – diet & exercise, writing, spending time with Sara – and so going into July, I’d like to find a better way to work through all of that crap so that I don’t lose as many nights to passing out early from sheer exhaustion and so on and so forth!
Above all, I think that sleep is going to be a big one because over the last month, I’ve watched my already erratic sleep schedule just take a nose dive for the worst and it pretty much always ends up screwing me in the long run, so in July I’d like to try to normalize a more reasonable bedtime, with the hopes that over time it’ll make me more productive during the day as well.
I’m also trying to make sure that I spend a little time with my wife each week, as it’s really easy to get lost in everything else and see our time fall to the wayside … which also can hurt in the long run because so much of my creative work really does need down time in order for me to write at my best. It’s just not one of those things where I can push push push and get exponentially better results the more time I put into it – sometimes less time and more breaks really can lead to better results.
I’m kind of just rambling now, so I suppose I’ll wrap it up, but that’s whatever “plan” I’ve been able to develop, anyways – we’ll check in a few weeks from now and see how things are coming!
