My mom used the tell me that I was burning the candle at both ends. Saying that by staying up late and working on too many things I was loosing focus and making the effort in each area less effective. At least that’s what I realize she was saying years after the fact. It’s also a proven fact that your parents are usually right it’s just going to take a while to figure it out.
I still stay up till all hours of the night, still wake up crazy early, about 4 – 5 hours a night is my sweet spot for being deliriously productive. SO for me it wasn’t the sleep that turned out to be the candle it was the focus. I was trying to do too much without any focus.
It’s funny how motivation needs to be focused. Previously creating content was the easy part and health was the rough patch. Now the tables have turned and I’m focused on being a better me while the content has taken a back seat. It isn’t a bad thing. It’s just a thing.
Hopefully as time moves forward the healthy living will be more of a way things are and less of a conscious choice and struggle. Until then. I take what I can get in terms of motivation and content. Health comes first!
