I’m not going to lie, I struggled after the festive break to get my mindset right to go back to work. But, I did and in a flash a week has passed.
The decorations are down and routines become familiar once more. I had to decide whether to apply for a job and after a bit of soul searching, decided that the change I am seeking is more from within and so that is where I am at.
I have booked myself on a coaching and mentoring skills course for April, and hope that it will provide me with some insight into encouraging staff and students to be the best they can be. I also hope along the way that it will allow me to both personally and professionally develop. This in turn will effect a change in me.
I have also taken the decision to follow dry January and so far so good, not that I drink that much, despite photos of various glasses of prosecco and cocktails littering my Facebook!
I am awaiting the better sleep patterns and glowing skin, this occurs around day 17. Until then I am enjoying green tea, coconut water and a variety of alcohol free libations!
One week in with a few more things to look forward to arranged, including another Lords afternoon tea in April. February and March is pretty full on, and a trip to Scotland will be squeezed in too.
Here’s hoping week 2 is as fulfilling as winter takes hold!
