I’ve gotten some things done but not even close to what I had planned. But that’s ok. I’m giving myself a break because I’m at the tail end of this cold and I haven’t quite made it back to 100% yet so why not go a little slower? You have to give yourself some self-care when you need it and you shouldn’t feel guilty about it either. We take care of others when they need it but if we haven’t taken care of ourselves, we will eventually end up exhausted and that will lead to us becoming ill. Exhaustion will wear you and your immune system down so that it can’t fight the everyday viruses and bacteria with which we come into contact much less the more serious ones that are floating around out there just waiting for a weakened immune system to attack. So, we rest when we need to rest. We eat healthily. We take our medications and supplements. We take care of any chronic conditions that we have. We get all of the recommended vaccinations. We see our doctors on a regular basis. We balance our workload with our lives outside of work. We work on our stress levels by meditating or just relaxing. We spend time out in nature and with our friends and family. We play with our pets. We create. We do more of what makes us feel good mentally, emotionally, and physically. We get back to the basics and just take care of ourselves.
