lenina is feeling restless

I’ve been feeling restless this week, and quite agitated. I think it’s to do with the fact that I haven’t had any exercise since I got my new car, and now it’s catching up with me. I’m quite highly strung anyway, and always full of thoughts (too many!), analysing things, and generally overly productive (I don’t stop).

While I didn’t have my car, I walked or cycled every day to work and back. That worked quite well, balancing everything out (and releasing some of the pressure). Right now I don’t do it, and there’s a lot of stuff going on.

So, I need to think of a strategy to find some kind of release (my work colleague suggested sex! But I’m not going out randomly to shag strangers thank you very much). I think the best method will be to channel my surplus thinking (and there’s plenty of it) into writing, and my surplus aggression (for want of a better word) into exercise (i.e. walking or cycling. You won’t find me down the gym!).

In a way it’s quite exciting to be restless – I haven’t felt this in a long time, and it’s a good creative and otherwise motor. I thought that, being 34, I was past it – thankfully, I am not. Bring it on  😛
