DailyQuickie: STRESSED!!!??? Stop to Smell the Roses
Where: Ocean Ave, Santa Monica
When: Monday, Nov 7- Daily Morning Walk
What: I woke up stressed. I have an insane amount overflowing from my plate today. My mind was spinning from the moment I opened my eyes. Which is exactly why I decided to do my daily morning walk with my pup- to get my head on straight, organize my thoughts, create a schedule- an order of operation to ensure that I am actually able to get things done. Sometimes when you have too much to do, you don’t do any of it because you jump from one project to the next, never completing a task. This walk was focused on focusing. And then I saw this beautiful rose bush and the scent stopped me in my mental race. How could I not take a few minutes to stop and smell the roses (Beignet did too… that’s her nose ;). Amazing how something so simple- the scent of a rose, can bring back perspective. Fact is, if I’m out of my head stressed, I won’t be productive at work. Sometimes putting on those rose colored glasses is exactly what you need to be the best you can be- in life and work. It’s going to be a good day!
