Somnambulism (n.): sleepwalking
Have you ever ended your work day wondering What in the world did I accomplish today? That is a sure sign that you’ve been sleepwalking through your day. Wake up!
Life can be overwhelming. And that’s the moment to reinvest—to take stock of what’s going on around you and what you can do to better negotiate the challenges life is sending your way.
In order to sleep well at home, you need to provide your body with certain nourishment. Likewise, in order to perform optimally on the job you need to do the same. Stress is the primary reason that we mentally check out. At work, at home, in life. But stress is not the enemy. How we approach stress is the deciding factor.
Every problem is an opportunity to discover something new and improve yourself. Embrace the issues, use the errors. Organize your thoughts, then your environment based on what you learn.
A somnambulistic existence is not your destiny. Start the work today. Give yourself a gift—be present!
