It's that time of year for many of us. We're trying to hit our year end goals, it's cold and flu season, the days are darker and colder, and for people like my retail clients and me, it's just plain busy. So how do you push yourself and not suffer the consequences? I share exactly how to do that in today’s episode.
I pushed myself to the brink of disaster.
I woke up Christmas morning exhausted, sick, and fifteen pounds heavier than I was two months before. I was at the tail end of a seven-week marathon of ninety-hour workweeks and my body and mind were paying the price.
By Christmas morning, I was mentally and physically fatigued. I had a horrible cold that lasted far too long, and my pants didn’t fit very well. I was an absolute mess.
Sometimes you have to push. That is a fact of life. There are times that call for extra effort, extra focus, and extra hours. But when you do, it doesn’t mean that your body has to end up in shambles.
Today I share 11 things I learned during that rough time and what I am doing differently now.
