Happy President’s Day! Today is day four of my nice break from work, life, etc. I had big plans for this for day weekend – and all of them involved writing. However, my body and mind had completely different ideas.
On Friday, I slept. Almost all day. That’s okay, right? I mean, work has been insane. RL has been insane. So, my entire family and I spent the day hanging out, sleeping, vegging and doing…well…nothing really.
Saturday, my oldest was sick and slept all day long. My youngest worked on a project. My hubby and I watched movies – all day. I literally though about….NOTHING. It was refreshing and by the end of the day I thought of all the things I would get done on Sunday.
Yep, you guessed it, I did….
At least not until Sunday evening.
I realized something in all the relaxing. I was running on empty. Truthfully,I have probably been running on empty for too long. I am usually better about not letting myself get so run down, but in addition to running on empty, I think I was also just not paying attention.
I need to pay better attention and take good care of me. It’s something I think most writer’s need to do a little more of, yes?
So here we are….Monday. I am writing today. And I do feel rejuvenated. Taking three full days off of life will do that to a person. Let’s hope it doesn’t take getting this run down to remind me of that again.
What do you do to rejuvenate? Do you ever let yourself get too run down? Or am I the only one?
