So I have an important event tomorrow 75 miles away (1.5 hour drive). To prevent relapse wiping out productivity for next week, I am taking these steps:
I’ve made a schedule outlining when and how much I will rest, along with travel times, meals and being at the event. The schedule goes over Saturday and Sunday. I need big swaths of rest. When I return on Sunday, I am myself hosting an event in the evening. A friend has offered to come early and help me get set up for it. I’ll need to go to bed early, for sure!
I am sharing this schedule with the people I will be interacting with in the hopes that my needs won’t wrinkle their plans.
I think I can do this without crashing. We shall yet see if I have given myself enough wiggle room. Cliffhanger!
