When everything feels like work
Let’s do a check-in. How are you really feeling lately?
When your usual activities start to feel routine or feels like work, that’s a sign to really start paying attention. Are you giving yourself enough rest and play?
Those two occupations are essential to a balanced lifestyle and cannot be neglected. I repeat, we need rest and play in addition to work.
Now you may ask, “Where in the world do you find time for that?!” The good news is that you don’t have to be 100% perfect in work, rest and play. It’s time to give yourself permission to unwind and relax by yourself preferably. If that’s not possible, try to connect with neighbors, friends, co-workers, or relatives to see if they can take care of your loved one(s) while you’re making time for yourself. You may feel guilty, but don’t be. It’s now easy to get in touch with neighbors online through websites such as Nextdoor.com.
So, give yourself that permission, to rest and play. You deserve it.
