A quick update

I wanted to share a short life update with you. It’s been a while since I’ve felt motivated to write, so I wanted to seize the opportunity and post something 🙂

This past month has been insanely busy and stressful at work. But we’ve finally passed the worst of it. I’m definitely dealing with burnout, which is exacerbated by talkative coworkers in an open office. 

One thing that I’ve recently added to my arsenal of helpful introvert tools is a pair of reusable ear plugs. They block out nearly all background noise (like printers running and keys clicking) and reduce noise from chatter around me. I’m still able to have conversations while wearing them and it’s helped to reduce a lot of overstimulation. I really wish I had discovered them sooner haha.

I’ve also been incorporating more exercise, stretching, and short yoga routines into my schedule. As well as taking extra time to recharge when I need it. Other fun updates include a new haircut and upcoming travel plans. I haven’t finalized things yet, but am planning another trip to the Philippines with possible stopovers in Japan, South Korea, or Singapore. All suggestions are welcome.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!
