Okay, I’m fighting a cold and feeling miserable right now. No, I’m not looking for sympathy. I know there are many out there far worse off than me. But it got me thinking. I’m a day late with my Tuesday Tips blog. My brain just wouldn’t work yesterday. And I should be working on edits, but again, the brain won’t focus. I should be working on my goals and business plan for 2016. You get the picture. At least I don’t have any immediate deadlines.
I tried taking cold medication. It stops the running nose, but makes me feel like my brain is wrapped in cotton wool. So I’m not doing that anymore. I decided I have to force myself to do a little bit each day so I don’t fall way behind. I can scan through my email and delete. I can cope with that. Anything that needs reading or a detailed response I’ll leave for another day.
I’m guest blogging on Lyndi Lamont’s site, at http://lindalyndi.com/welcome-beverley-bateman so I can check for comments and do some PR posts.
I’ll take a nap and then try and do a little more of the basic – not too much thinking.
What do you do when illness strikes? How do you cope if you have deadlines looming?
