A week off does wonders. I didn’t go away (I’ve a holiday booked for Sunny Scotland coming up in a couple of weeks time) but the last few weeks have been a bit of a drag and had started to take a toll. Not betting-wise, but work and other things had been heavy and in the end, for the sake of my own sanity, I decided to take a break from it all. I’ve spent a week reading, pottering, and generally not doing much at all, and that includes betting.
And you know what? I feel so much better for it. Perhaps as I get older, I have a lot more awareness of mental health and how taking a regular break from things can be so beneficial in that regard. When you’re younger I think you just power through things, work pressures, family issues, whatever…without really thinking about how you are within yourself. I guess that’s how people burn out. Being able to recognize the early signs of burn out is an important skill, I reckon. That, and the ability to talk to others and not bottle everything up.
Anyway, in what seems like the dim and distant past but was in fact just a week yesterday, Weekly Golf Value gave the winner of The Open, Collin Morikawa. Nice. Not so much for Golf Insider though, who had 2nd placed Jordan Speith and is searching to end a bit of a winning drought. It will come, I’m sure.
So, I’m back betting this week, refreshed, and raring to go in Glorious Goodwood week. Bring. It. On.
