On Saturday, I took a “Me Day”. I basically made this day up for well, me. 🙂
I knew I was at the end of things and coming dangerously close to burning out again. I have “burn out” times more than I think any one person should ever have. There are a lot of contributing factors, I over commit to things, I don’t sleep well most nights, I’m up early, I get to work earlier than I need to be so I can get my day started, I don’t take full lunch breaks (even though I should) and I just flat out don’t know how to say “no” many times. I’m learning, it’s a slow process apparently in my world.
So, I decided that Saturday would be my “Me Day” which included going for my normal Saturday morning run and then going home and resting. Thankfully Karen Kingsbury came out with a new book, so I had that to help me relax. 🙂 I spent some of the day reading on the couch until the sun came out and I moved to the porch so that I would be in the warmth of the sun. I also took a short nap, watched a couple episodes of NCIS and got to bed at 10pm. Yes, I did eat in the midst of all that relaxing.
I also finished the Karen Kingsbury book!
I learned a little bit about having my “Me Day”. One, I’m not so inclined to have that many and two, it wasn’t as hard to do as I thought it would be to take the day and relax. 🙂
I know that it is important to take one day out of the week and not have it so full that I can’t see straight. I want to have more of these days.
Do you have “Me Days”???
