We all have things as need to do to keep an even keel — blogging, exercising, reading, cooking. What’s yours?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us ACTIVITY.
I have several things I do to keep an even keel. The first is walking my dogs in the morning. The morning doesn’t start unless I walk Ernie for 15 minutes and then Ralphy for 15 minutes. I get my 30 minutes of walking exercise in and they get a little exercise, too.
Then I answer my e-mail and send out my Postcrossing postcards. I belong to a postcard club and I see how many postcards I should be sending out and to whom, and if I have received any the day before in the mail, I register them.
Then I blog. I usually answer the daily prompt after I have read the blogs of the bloggers I follow. Then I often blog about a book I have finished reading for my Book Challenge Update.
Then I eat my breakfast. I never miss my breakfast of a banana and apricots. They are an important source of potassium and I have a problem keeping potassium in my system so I always eat these fruits.
Now I’m set for a day of reading and crocheting and knitting, if I don’t have to be out tutoring or going out on a CASA case. I can spend the entire day reading, broken up by some crocheting or knitting. I read several books at once. I read rather fast. I live to read.
And that’s how I keep myself on an even keel. Even if I have to go out, I make sure to stay as close as possible to my routine. It helps to steady me.
Am I nuts? Possibly. But this is the way I live. You asked. I answered. Here’s the story.
