After being completely overwhelmed the past few weeks (months, years), I finally decided to take a week off of work and just relax. It has been over five years since I have had 5 consecutive days off of work. At the beginning, I had plans to try to: 1. exercise 2. read 3. blog daily 4. reconnect with me….and the list goes on.
After feeling overwhelmed by the to-do list for my staycation, I decided to not have any expectations or plans for my staycation. That has worked out best, for I have not done much. It is Thursday and this is the first blog post I have written. Exercise, Schmexercise. I did disconnect from social networks for the most part this week (or drastically reduced usage from a typical week). That has made me enjoy the silence a bit more.
Tomorrow marks the last solo day of my staycation. I have multiple doctor appointments, so not too much fun or relaxation ahead. I thought I would be bored by the end of this week and longing for work. However, I would love to take another week off!
September has been a really rough month for me. I have not felt myself the majority of the month and realized I missed my boring, old self! Here’s hoping October weighs a little less heavily on my mind and body…
