Ideas for a regenerative day
Okay, I will admit it, I over did it in October, to much much work, not enough saying no thank you. I was in a meeting this week and a conversation was going on down the table about a project I have been involved in for years, the one thing I said "sorry, but not this year" to recently and experienced a quick shower of emotions, panic that I had missed something, neglect for not being in the loop this year, then relief when I realized that I am not on that planning committee because I asked for a year off.
I have a free weekend, I need to rest and regenerate.
1: Have no goals or things that need to be done or must be done. Impossible, I have to unpack and do laundry - but that is a minor thing. Hubby went out of his way to restock the larder so I don't have to do my weekend shopping runs.
2: Do what makes you feel good. Treat yourself to the little things that you enjoy.
3: At some point I will get our of the house this weekend, I / we should go and do something we don't normally do. Do I hear Ikea calling? Or Mt Vernon?
4: Forget time and schedules. One of my roles on Thursday and Friday was as the time cop, getting sessions started on time and ended on time. It is amazing that a panel of three lawyers will set there and wait for someone to come in and tell them "time to get started" - don't they know what time it is?
5: Sleep late, take a nap, take a long shower, maybe if I am feeling really adventurous go out for a pedicure - my nails need trimming and my heels are drying out.
