The second quarter of 2022 is starting off with a new phase as the government mandates a return to office for everyone. Fortunately, I rearranged my schedule in May, allowing me some time to prepare and adapt to the so-called “New Normal“.
One of the first things I want to tackle is my sleeping habits. After enduring long hours of training and actual work for a month, I’ve been struggling to establish a consistent sleep schedule. This has resulted in daily migraines and restlessness. However, I’ve decided to temporarily cut back on coffee to facilitate a smoother transition and improve my sleep patterns.
Given my current schedule, I should ideally be sleeping around seven in the morning and waking up at two in the afternoon. However, I’ve noticed that I’ve been falling asleep at three in the morning right after I finish work. As a result, I wake up around ten in the morning. While I still manage to get seven to eight hours of sleep, having a more stable sleep schedule would be preferable.
The next item on my to-do list is to find a suitable work bag for my upcoming commute. Dealing with unpleasant encounters on the road has made me realize the importance of having a secure and theft-proof bag. While I initially considered getting a handbag, I’ve come to the conclusion that a crossbody bag would be more practical. Its design allows for freedom of movement, which is especially beneficial as I tend to power-walk my way to the office.
Another item on my shopping list is an RFID-safe wallet. The ongoing pandemic has taught me the importance of being proactive and vigilant when it comes to my finances. With the rise of digital payment methods and contactless transactions, protecting my sensitive information has become a top priority.
An RFID-safe wallet will provide an added layer of security, ensuring that my financial data remains safe and protected from potential threats.
One area that requires my attention is my wardrobe and skincare routine. Over the past two years, I have experienced significant weight loss, resulting in a lighter and more active lifestyle. While there may not be noticeable physical changes, I have noticed an improvement in my overall well-being.
However, I have been struggling with acne due to hormonal changes, and unfortunately, my habit of picking at them has led to scarring on my face. Despite the continued use of masks, it saddens me to see these scars, so it is crucial for me to take proactive steps in allowing them to heal. This includes adopting a consistent skincare regimen and refraining from picking at my skin, while also exploring ways to enhance my wardrobe and boost my confidence.
As I read this once more, I sense the upcoming busyness of April 2022. But for now, I’ll cherish the joy of being a pet sitter on weekends.
