This Blog is part of the #365daysofselfcare challenge
I barely slept last night. I was up and down to the toilet every couple of hours. It’s the worst my bladder has been for a couple of weeks. Being so tired, l slept through my alarm. However, with self-care in mind, I didn’t beat myself up about sleeping in. I instead took some deep breaths, accepted l needed the additional sleep and just started my writing work later than planned.
I also cancelled going to see mum as tiredness and a mum with dementia is not a great fit. I surprisingly managed 3 hours of writing done, and afterwards I planned to flake out on the sofa. However, I had a sudden urge to do a bit of exercise. I decided it would likely do my very unfit body some good. I went for a 20 minute circular walk on the seafront and then did a 15 min weight session.
In the evening, I rewarded myself by putting my feet up and watching the remaining episode of lost in space.
Another nicely balanced day which again surprised me. It shows that mindfulness really does help a day to develop and turn out well, even after an awful start.
