69 Days Away: SLEEP

My body told me it was time to take a break

This is a daily documentation of my adventure from Hillsboro, Oregon to Cape Town, South Africa on September 16th, 2017.

Day 32 has me feeling refreshed!

I just slept for 10 hours. It was very much needed. My body is thanking me for such a reprieve, especially after waking up early yesterday to play some basketball.

The one thing I need to work on personally — sleep — is crucial to my health.

However, now that it’s past noon, the extra sleep does not help me with what I have to do today. I have to write this post, write my article, edit and send it in for publishing, open the gym for even more basketball, and go grocery shopping for the week.

I guess it’s time to buckle down and get to work!

I believe I’m going to cut this post short. While I definitely have witnessed the importance of daily writing and there’s no stopping this 100 Days to South Africa now, I feel like it isn’t serving the purpose I need it for today.

So I leave you here with a lesson: If you start doing something in your day that doesn’t seem as important as a priority you should be doing, STOP. The other thing will still be there later, and the important thing will be done.

Hope everyone has a great Sunday!
