First off, why not have a watch of my latest video to get up to date: https://choosetransformation.files.wordpress.com/2019/05/win_20190520_14_11_56_pro.mp4
As I said, I’m now in the middle of quite a heavy stint at work- three, 12.5 hour days on the trot, three days off and then three days back on… so six days out of nine.
I don’t mind so much, but my work days are a write off for any kind of social interaction. All I’m good for is collapsing on the sofa at the end of the day and moaning because I’m hangry but too tired to do anything about it. Being tired makes me a right whiny bitch!
So, these three days off are precious! I’ve been sat on the sofa nearly all day- apart from when the maintenance man came to fix our bedroom door, which I had completely forgotten about. Fortunately, I was semi- presentable and able to let the bloke in without getting eyed up or done for incident exposure.
My self care yesterday consisted of quality time with my significant other, seeing the family and admiring my blossoming garden (not a euphemism). Even the cat shit pot, as it is now affectionately known, is sprouting some little shoots!
My self care today consists of comfy clothes, lying under a fluffy blanket, binge watching Netflix and wallowing in snacks. Not advisable to do it too frequently, I know, but today it’s what my body and soul are craving. And I’m having a bloody wonderful time.
I don’t yet know what tomorrow’s self care will look like, but it makes a change that I’m actually looking forward to seeing how I might be kind to myself tomorrow- Perhaps I’ll go for a walk, or go round mum’s for a coffee, or do some drawing.
How have you practiced self care today?
