Self-care is knowing how to restart a day which started badly
Today did not start well, which is a shame as I had a lovely evening in London last night with my best bud. There are a ton of train problems at the moment, our train was cancelled, meaning an additional wait and missing our follow on connections, plus we were given the wrong information which complicated things further. The upshot was a replacement bus to Brighton Arriving at 4am!
I am exhausted now and frustrated. I had so much to do which now is impossible with this level of tiredness. Chris is coming over and I am now going to be tired and stressed for him. My mental and physical health relies on a routine and so the best thing I can do now is to get some sleep.
When I wake up, l have two choices. I can let it continue to annoy me and ruin the day or simply use a fab trick l learnt in AA and restart my day.
Taking a deep breath, letting it go and restarting is the best self care I can practice today.
