(34) at (34) Challenge: Listening to My Body

I am often described as energetic. Some (particularly men) call me hyper or overwhelmingly intense, but I rather look at it positively. Energetic sounds about right. As does powerful and dynamic. As they say, if you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen. Or in my case, my pepa.

Still, I need downtime. Like a woman born under the sign of Cancer, though I am a proud Arian, my mood can fluctuate from week to week. Today I woke up late and unmotivated. I thought of all the things I want to do at 34 and still, nothing. I sat in front of my computer and didn’t want to write. Me. A writer.

That’s no bueno.

So, I plowed ahead anyway. At times, it’s all we can do. Still, while writing a pitch post for a popular magazine, my body fought productivity. Should I stop? I thought. Can I stop? I questioned. My fingers moved away from the keyboard. I remembered this past weekend. How relaxed I was while shopping at the Garden State Mall and staying over my sisters in the suburbs. How much I enjoyed pampering myself, buying products at Sephora and Aveda that would beautify my skin and hair. I don’t treat myself enough. I don’t take time out to create a routine to do my nails, hair and makeup.

That’s no bueno.

So, I’ve added the following to my list of things to do at 34.

  • Pampering
  • Build routines
  • Take time out for self
  • Listen to my body

These four little things will make a world of difference when waking up on a Monday morning like a moody Cancerian, though I am a proud Arian.
