Day 925. The negative effects of not taking care of your health.

365+ Days of Living the Dale Carnegie Principles

Day 925.  Saturday, October 5, 2013
I was so excited about today.  There were so many fun projects I had to do – all related to photography.  Today was going to be grand.

Except when I got up around 10 am I felt odd.  I looked and felt drained of energy.

Did I eat?  No. Instead I went to my hair appointment.  I just wanted that appointment to hurry up and end.  I was so tired.

Did I go home and rest?  Eat?

No.  I went to a store to look for some props for my blog.

Then I had a light snack and went on a photography shoot.  The shoot was a bust.  I was uninspired and unhappy.  The shoot was something I felt like I had to get over with.  It wasn’t fun.  It was horrible.

I went home and fell asleep on the couch for a few hours.  Then I ate.

Somewhat energized I did some work in my photography studio—I had a grand time.  But I was still very, very tired.

My eyes hurt. My head hurt.  All the fun I was supposed to have today didn’t happen because I’m not taking care of my health.  I’m trying to do way too much.

Even the hairdresser commented that my hair is falling out—she suggested it’s due to stress.

So I am going to bed—and I’m hoping to sleep very, very well.

The Dale Carnegie principle I need to use is from How to Stop Worrying and Start Living:
Protect your health and appearance by relaxing at home.

The lesson in this story:  Yes, it’s good to keep busy but rest is equally important.
