Sometimes, the key to happiness is nothing.
I don’t know about you but I am constantly go, go, go. It’s rare that I spend a day doing nothing. No cleaning. No cooking. No errands. No gym.
You see, I am the type of person who gets so much satisfaction from being productive. I often go until I run out of steam. Could be a couple days or weeks. I don’t typically realize it’s happening until I’m completely pooped.
I realized it Wednesday that I needed to take a breather. So I took off half a day. I went to lunch with a friend and then laid in my bed for a few hours and watched a new series. I didn’t even go to the gym!
I just needed a few moments to recharge. Tomorrow morning will probably be the same. The morning will be spent with warm coffee and maybe even some snuggles.
This time of year can be especially overwhelming. Remember to take a minute. Or several. And recharge. We aren’t robots. Sure there is a lot that needs to be done, and it will get done. Just not right now ☺️.
