So, yep, I missed a blogging day yesterday. And, you know what?
I needed a down day. A day where I didn’t have to do anything. A day off as it were.
As much I enjoy writing and getting to write about whatever is on my mind, just turning on the computer feels like work since that’s where I do all of my work. So, even logging on for pleasure has an odd “work” feeling to it.
I’m learning that it’s important to take breaks when my mind and body tell me they need a break. It’s important to say no when I know it’s unhealthy to say yes. This is a hard lesson to learn because it means possibly disappointing other people or just experiencing that terrible fear of missing out.
That’s probably my biggest lesson this year: Learning to listen and act on what my body needs—food, rest, exercise, calm.
