Definition: consistent and continuous speed
Let me tell you, I am terrible at pacing myself. I have to wait until the movie theater gets dark to get my popcorn, otherwise it’ll be all gone before the movie starts. If I’m visiting a new city, I want to do everything on my activities list on the first day.
I want to do everything, all the time, right now.
It can be a bit of a problem. I burn out big time. And when I’ve recovered from the burn out, I just dive right back into my old ways. It’s a terrible cycle, and I’m trying to break it by pacing myself.
During the weekends I think about all of the things that I have on my agenda for the week. I take into account the things that must get done and things I want to get done. I think about appointments, errands, my social life, work.
consistent and continuous speed
I try to map everything out so that I’m using relatively equal amounts of energy each day, which helps me avoid getting caught in the crash-and-burn cycle.
Pace helps our bodies function better, which helps us mentally and physically conquer all the things life throws at us!
This week, take a moment to reflect on things that you could do to set a new pace during your day and week.
