Oh, #zeropeopleday, you are my jam…

sorry… silliness.
Often Monday – sometimes shifted when i need to due to deadlines and workload.
And I am treasuring you.
Anxiety. Overworking. Burnout. Not treating myself with the courtesy I have just barely learned to give others….
It began with messages from my therapist I’ve talked about in a previous post, and continued as I have been trying to be consistent about keeping that “1 day off” per week.

And today has been a much needed day off. I did lots of little things today and am about to hit the futon with the book I am reading right now < Human, by S.M.Carriere, if you are curious>.Screen Shot 2015-11-09 at 5.37.39 PM
I am simply taking a moment to post about how grateful I am for being reminded to take time to recharge myself so that I can be a productive member of society.
And to also not feel guilty about it, since it’s part of the larger equation.
Other folks get it too- each in their own way, but with ideas to help find our own ways…:

Anyway – time to get back to my #zeropeopleday – and the dog just grunted at me – she needs some snuggle time too!

One thought on “Oh, #zeropeopleday, you are my jam…

  1. Pretend I’m not a people 😉 Yes, you know, I am one of those who understand. And lately I’ve been trying to take a day off a week myself. With varied success. I keep forgetting that a day off does not mean ‘get all my personal sewing done’ day, does not mean ‘meet 3 people for activities and meals’ day, does not mean ‘run all over town on the bus doing errands’ day. It means exactly what you are doing… Sunday is the day I chose but that has meant missing out on stuff like going to brunch (requires getting out of PJs before noon). I may follow your lead and try Mondays. They always seem less frantic to begin with.
    Good idea. Enjoy your book and lap warmer 🙂
    On my day off I miss having a cat to pin me down on the couch or in my chair 😉
