Paul Huschilt's Expect Everything
Resolutions and Rest

Just before the new year I decided to take a break from the holidays and get a jump on an important resolution.  I went to the gym.  I hadn’t been going regularly and I promised myself I'd be healthier in 2019.

 Like everyone else there, my goal that day was to stay in shape and to buy myself some extra calories for New Year’s eve and day.  But it had been a while, so I decided to warm up first.  Off to the stretching room…

 The problem with stretching rooms is twofold: 1) they’re really quiet and peaceful and 2) those mats are really comfortable.  My intended workout preluded by serious stretching became one of the best sleeps of the season.  I burned several calories figuring out what dimension I was in when I woke.  When you are used to waking up in your own bed, waking up in the midst of upside-down double-jointed contorted strangers can be a bit confusing.

 Once I figured out where I was, I had just enough time left to get changed and leave.

 Instead of feeling I had wasted time, I walked out laughing.  I couldn’t believe I had fallen asleep.  (Did I snore?  At least I’ll never know.)  My resolution was going to be a ridiculous battle.

 So, I softened my resolution.  I’m going to try to get healthy, but if I sleep instead of exercising, that’s good too.  This year, look at your resolutions and think of all of the ways those goals are going to make things better.  And then think about how much better things will be if you accomplish some of the goals.  Your resolutions should guide you, not stress you out or leave you discouraged.  Of course you want to keep working hard, but give yourself a break too.

Have a great couple of weeks.
