I love being back at work. It is exhausting to be “on stage” for 7 hours each day, but I get so much energy and inspiration from my seminar-participants 🙂 This week and next are really fully booked, but I could obviously not keep up this pace for a long time.
I stopped taking the train in june last year – and I stopped taking the bus and streetcar to the venues a long time before that. It was just too exhausting – and to scary, walking stairs with the suitcase, the distance to and from the station, balancing into the trains…. Well, yesterday I took the train to Oslo (1,5 hours) and today I took the streetcar from the venue. The walking, the carrying, the balancing went all well – and I didn’t get as tired as I feared. I am not all fine with this, but I am optimistic that it will continue to get easier with time.
I want to set a new standard for how I relax after my courses. Instead of just sinking down in front of a screen, today I did almost one hour of yoga, stretching and meditation. The balance is worse again – probably because I’m tired – but otherwise it felt wonderful 🙂
