I'm tired and I need a break. So I took one yesterday. I'm proud of myself for knowing when I need to make time for myself to relax. So yesterday, Chris took Gatsby to her vet checkup for me in the morning and went into work on a project at the office for a few hours. I had the entire morning and afternoon to myself!
Even though it was a beautiful 80 degree day outside...I stayed in my PJ's, snuggled under my favorite blanket, put on my favorite movie and just relaxed. I spent time making myself a fancy lunch (something I used to love doing but don't have the time for lately). Took a bubble bath complete with candles. Soothed my overwhelmingly dark under eye circles with cucumbers. And even painted my nails. It was perfect.
By the time the Hubs returned I was back to being his wife and not some crazy sleep deprived stranger. A beautiful day wasted? No. A beautiful day gained. Filled with relaxation and renewed strength.
What do you do to relax?
