A change is as good as a rest......umm no, a rest is much better!

I realise I have not been particularly prolific on here of late and I think this is for a number of reasons. Or rather, it could be for one of many reasons but I can't work out which. 

We are approaching the end of another school year. I have no children but all of my business endeavours revolve around the school timetable. This means I am constantly waiting for the school holidays so that I can do nothing for a week or two (or six in the summer). I don't really like this feeling, I would love to have a little more freedom.

My fatigue is a little out of hand right now and I have a very busy 3 weeks ahead which is quite daunting. I've talked about my loss of mojo before and I have, recently (or for the past 3 years or so) put this down to being perimenopausal but I'm not so sure anymore. One of you lovely readers got in touch to ask if I thought I may have ADHD. I shrugged this off, thinking it seems very fashionable for adults to suddenly be diagnosed with ADHD and so I didn't really take this suggestion seriously. I can't be bothered to do anything about this (which I have read is a classic ADHD symptom) and really want to try and locate my mojo without medical intervention. 

Of course this means that I am probably going to procrastinate like crazy and do nothing for 3 weeks until I am finally on my summer break but this is probably precisely what I shouldn't do. Therefore, in an effort to find a little more energy I have decided to make one small change that I am hoping will help.

During lockdown I had got myself into the habit of going for a daily walk, as we couldn't really do much else and then, once we were allowed to go everywhere again, I went nowhere! So I have reintroduced the daily walk. I have set myself a goal of, at least, 5000 steps per day and I have everything crossed that I will see a change in my energy levels because of it. I know I need to do more than this and perhaps I should be seeing a doctor to check all is well but I've never liked making a fuss about stuff so don't want to waste anyone's time.

Hopefully I will have something more interesting to tell you next time I write as I am getting completely bored with myself so can only imagine how you feel reading this. In the meantime take care of yourselves and I'll be in touch again soon!
