There is a difference between healthy productivity and toxic productivity. With toxic productivity, you bust your ass so hard that you dig your own grave then bury yourself and hire the funeral arrangements. Then you’re dead.
Then there is healthy productivity, where your personal goals align while honoring your mind, body and soul. I am banking on the later.
For most of my 20s and 30s, I busted out work like none other. I worked long hours. I played hard, then I’d fall hard. The lack of boundaries was killing me. I overcommitted being the yes (whoa)man and would become the machine I never wanted.
Then the pandemic hit. I learned more about myself then I had known before and was ready to start prioritizing my health and my recovery from overwork and resentment.
I got my act together. I started writing. I started healing. I started setting boundaries. I did massive amounts of self care, including group therapy, pilates and movement classes. I branched out to my community. I learned new skills.
But this time around was different. I was doing what I wanted to when I wanted to do it, and doing it with like minded individuals that were searching for the same.
I built a community of new healthy friends that prioritize my health.
I moved the languishing energy out of my body with brisk walks in nature. I started loving myself again and liking what I saw in the mirror.
Today was the first time in 20 years that I took a double header, TWO NAPS IN ONE DAY.
‘How could this be humanly possible?’ you may ask.
The answer is simple. Exhaustion from doing things my way. Things I like to do. Things I can be proud of. Things I can tell my kids about. Things I can brag about. Because the later was doing for others what they needed to do for themselves: GROW.
