|Community Call Follow Up #9|
This week's homework is:
2. Post your daily writing update and daily treat in our online community.
3. This is self-care week! So I challenge each of you to SLEEP (AT LEAST) 8 HOURS PER NIGHT and/or TAKE THE WEEKEND OFF! That's
right, I want you to commit to a full night of sleep every night this
week (unless a new baby precludes that possibility!) so you can fully
rest and recharge. If you're unable to sleep 8 hours per/night, it's
time to ask yourself: why?
Do you need to adjust your bedtime or bedtime routine, a quick fix for a
night-time disturbance, and/or are you awakened by anxiety? As always,
if you can identify the problem then it's time to ask if there is
anything you can do about it? These are the questions that such an
assignment is intended to elicit so feel free to reflect on this in your
daily updates. You'll also see a new question in your daily progress
update that will help you to track the number of hours you slept each
night this week.
I also put a few sleep resources for you in our online community:
In the Tele-Workshop Library, there's a 60 minute audio: The 5 Zee's to a Great Night's Sleep
you're one of the 15% of people in our group who are already sleeping 8
hours every night, CONGRATULATIONS! I want you to try the advanced
version and TAKE THE WEEKEND OFF.
This requires the same process as sleeping 8 hours: 1) recognizing that
you may have been using weekends as the bank to draw time for whatever
doesn’t get done during the week, 2) figure out what would be required
to make it happen, and 3) if you can’t do it, ask yourself why? And if
you're already sleeping 8 hours AND taking the weekend off -- you're a
bad-ass and you can choose whatever self-care you like!
I hope this week
bring you lots of sleep, great small group discussion, solid progress in
your daily writing AND the weekend off!!!!
