Why when I travel and am out of my routine does it take me so long to get back into it? It feels like trying to quickly turn an ocean liner... it doesn't happen. I'm sure it has to do with brain chemistry. All the dopamine and adrenaline that was coursing between my synapses is now trying to fire up about getting back on a schedule...so exciting and fun...not. But it is soothing once I've gotten it back. I try to be compassionate that I need time to get back in the swing. As I plan for my next trip (leaving for Florida next week) I know I will go through the same challenge when I get back. But that's ok. It will happen and right now I'm doing a Happy Dance that I sat down and wrote this blog today!
