Goal 4: Decompression
Is there a place you go or something you do to regroup? It may be as simple as zoning out on your commute home, walking the dog, baking bread, having a drink, watching the news, playing with the kids, talking to your partner, or running around the block. You may notice that the days when you don't have time for your favorite escape are the ones when you feel more tired and overwhelmed. The answer may already be at hand. Don't underestimate the value of this sort of personal retreat. Give it the respect it deserves.
