Phoenix Rising: Focusing on calm amid the house and job move panic


Recommended Posts

So i'm a week late starting, but better late than never.

Lots of stress:

1). looking to move house around mid July so four weeks to pack this one up along with all the last minute legal hitchs that are bound to crop up.

2) new job starts first week of august as long as my clearance arrives in time, otherwise i'm briefly unemployed. Should arrive in plenty of time but still a worry. Also need to finish up old job and tidy up my tasks and handover the unfinished ones to someone.

So the plan to keep calm is to keep things simple:

1). Meditate once a day

2). Pack something at least four days a week

3). Maintain fitness by exercising twice a week

4). Maintain food log, but no specific food macro goals at present

So excited and impatient and anxious all at the same time.

So far so good. Feeling reasonably calm with just over 3 weeks to go.

Spent the weekend spring cleaning the house and taking stuff to the tip so I feel my uncluttering goals were a success this week.

Food tracked each day. Ate a bit too much Indian food when I went out with friends but this challenge I'm just focusing on tracking not sticking to rigid macros each day.

Exercise I did one self defence fitness class but couldn't make my usual second one. Should have exercised at home but wasn't enthused so didn't.

This coming week can make both exercise classes so should be fine on that front. Also looking to exchange on house contract hopefully.

Update:

All going well. Have a firm house move date and a job start date. Twice weekly exercise is happening. De cluttering is happening, off to the tip again today with more random half empty tins of paint, broken bits of metal etc. food counting: so far no days missed.

Meditation less successful, time just flying by with so much to do I often seem to forget to take 10 mins to just relax. But stress levels are relatively low even with only occasional meditation.

Off to latitude festival in a week and a half's time. Looking forward to a break from the house packing but timing could have been better as moving house the day after we get back.
