Self-care is knowing when to take a break
I am out of date with my posting. In fact I’m out of date with all my social media. I decided to take a few days break from it all. I have been working so hard recently, writing articles, blog posts and short stories. My keyboard has been on fire!
I declared my fifth date with my new boyfriend, (I cannot get used to saying that!) as a little mini holiday. I travelled to him on Tuesday and stayed until Friday and allowed myself time off from writing. It was really lovely to just give myself permission to have some much needed chill out time and even more lovely that it was in wonderful company with a man that gives me so much to smile about.
I intended to pick work back up on Friday afternoon and spend the weekend catching up with all my posts, emails and general social media. However, I was absolutely worn out and instead have spent the weekend slobbing out! I have done a few things, but all from the comfort of my bed! I finally emerged today and went out for a brief walk and for some food supplies.
Its been a while since I’ve flaked out like that but its understandable really as I’ve been on such an emotional high. Whilst the high is a wonderful thing and should be enjoyed, self-care means preparing for the come down and allowing my body to react in whatever way it needs.
