I lost track of time!

Do you lose track of time, even forgetting which day of the week it is? That was me this week! I had an unusually busy weekend and woke on Monday feeling like it was the end of a long week. I kept having to reminding myself that it was Monday not Sunday, and in my dwaal (unfocused, confused state for non-South Africans) I forgot to send you this email! So I apologise for sending it a day late.

Routine gives a sense of control because it makes the flow of events predictable. Your sense of security is connected to predictability which is why most people like routines – they make life feel comfortable and secure. When your routine is disrupted it can be hard to re-orientate and get focused again. If you often struggle to stay focused, I can help you, so call me.

How do you get out of a ‘dwaal’? I find taking time out to ground myself works well – a short walk or other form of exercise is good. The boost to your circulation wakes up your body and brain and helps you feel fully present. Another is to work on an absorbing task that keeps you focused for some time instead of staying unsettled and unproductive. If your lack of focus is caused by mental or emotional tiredness, then the best solution is to rest and do something to restore your sense of well-being like sleep, read, or a gentle walk.

My choice yesterday was to tackle a huge task that needed focus but not much energy, only it took so much focus for so long, I still forgot it was Monday! Today I’m back on track.
