The rush to finish everything has arrived. It is a good time to remind people that sleep is necessary and so is food. I am guilty of this. Being up late and getting up way too early. Skipping meals because I am too busy. But for me, the worst is not seeing my other half.

It may seem silly but we have been together for a long time and I miss him when I am this busy. I have learned to set the time aside for him. It doesn’t have to be much. Sometimes involves me falling asleep on the couch next to him but it helps with everything else.

Breaks are a vital thing. With every deadline looming it seems hard but I am forcing myself to spend just a little time on me. And by that, I mean eating and sleeping.
