Adding "Being Sick" To My To-Do-List?

As I lay in bed achy and tired once again, I get the thought of adding "being sick" to my never ending to-do-list. Ironically during the winter I didn't catch the flu or any severe cold. But for some reason since the start of the New Year, I've literally been laid out by random colds and sniffles. Literally.

Getting sick these days usually means about 2-3 days of downtime. Literally. Once the coughing, sneezing or whatever form of sickness starts, I lose my energy and ability to think past a few actions. Usually those action involve basic care for my son. But anything beyond that? No energy for.

Honestly I'm a bit perplexed.

I've been sick before and able to "push" on with tackling tasks. It what so many of us do. Just keep going and get things done no matter what right?

But at some point that does take a toll on our bodies. And for a long while my body has been warning me the toll is getting to high to keep paying. Remember that one time I passed out.....

So what to do?

I think it's time that I revisit my schedule again. I started to the beginning of last year and it was helping but then I fell back into my bad blogger ways of working long hours, not eating healthy and very little rest.

And dealing with the latest round of knock me out sickness is part of the result.

So now that I'm starting to feel better, I can either add "being sick" to my to-do-list or I can go back to making changes in my life so I can rest and be more healthy.

I think we'd all agree that my to-do-list doesn't need more added to it.

Are you adding or taking away more from your to-do-list. Is it keeping you healthy or sick?
