Recognizing Stress

4 weeks of intense focus. 2 trips to Germany. 2 Sales Meetings. Blowing up a shoe and starting over. Stress building to an all time high. The result of all this was a stiff lower back which pulled my hamstrings so tight I could not run. More stress!

Friday night I unplugged. No email, No Social Media No Phone from Friday at 5pm until Monday at 6am. I slept 25 hours over the weekend into Monday.

Results: I ran relatively pain free (my hamstrings were not as tight) on Sunday.

I highly suggest tech free weekend from time to time. They work every time for me. I also suggest sleeping. It's not the most fun thing in life but it sure allows for fun things to happen when your head becomes fully engaged again.

It's a good life….
