Everyone has “those days” where work was rough, life seemed tiring and it was just a long day, or week. So tonight I treated myself with a mini pamper me routine.
I cooked dinner with my family, some comforting time and food. Then watched some comedy shows to get in a good laugh. For me laughing is one of the best de-stressers, you can’t be mad or frown while laughing. Finally I splurged on a white macadamia cookie and mindlessly scrolled through Youtube – of course while sipping my decaf pumpkin spice tea. And now I am in my cozy spot writing to you guys, this has been such a great creative, and stress relieving outlet. I will make my to-do list for tomorrow so I can stop worrying tonight.
Later I’m going to do a face mask, and put some leave-in conditioner into my dry hair and maybe even add an extra fuzzy blanket to my bed. I will spray (more than a couple pumps) of my lavender sleep aid onto my pillows and meditate for 10 to 20 minutes.
Meditation has been a life saver. It allows me to step back and take time for me, but productive time. Although it may seems like not being able to do anything for 10 minutes is not helpful, when you are done with the meditation the level of zen and balance expands and enables you to work even more focused and more attentively.
Breathe in. Breathe out.
