Relax

I've been busy!!!! My break last week was for that reason. I focused on prayer, work and relaxing as much as I could. I didn't write much. The only thing I'm still pondering was 'what if weight loss is not your goal?' There are some seasons in life where keeping up with life is all you can do. In my season, I've been remembering what's important: God and His plan for me.

There are other things I need to do to keep functioning well such as keeping a healthy diet and exercising. I've stayed away from coffee unless I'm hanging out with a friend. Here's a take of the Mayo Clinic:

"Though moderate caffeine intake isn't likely to cause harm, too much can noticeably affect your health. Heavy daily caffeine use — more than 500 to 600 mg a day, or about four to seven cups of coffee — can cause:
Restlessness
Anxiety
Irritability
Muscle tremors
Sleeplessness
Headaches
Nausea, diarrhea or other gastrointestinal problems
Abnormal heart rhythms" more

If you're already busy you don't need more symptoms. I know I don't. It's more challenging to get more sleep so you don't need that extra boost, but it's worth it. The only thing that's for sure is: seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Peace and relaxation included.
