Yesterday I actually took a "mental health" day, they might refer to them now as personal days. Whatever they are called I highly recommend them. I have make a decision to take one a month. You don't have to have an out of the house job to take care of your mental health.
The day was perfect for it, that wonderful light rain with a few rumbles of thunder and a flash or two of lightening. You know the kind I'm talking about, it makes your grass grow 6 inches overnight.
I had my usual list of "things to do" all ready to go and just said "no not today". If I'm behind this week so what, most of it is for other people anyway. Today is mine.
This was my day: shower, walked puppies between showers,10:30 nap and a 2:00 nap, reading between naps, soup for lunch and dinner.
At 9:15 when the puppies went for their last walk of the day I have never seen so many fire flies. They were beautiful and the puppies loved chasing and trying to catch them. I'm sure they are there every night I just don't take time to see them. I think I'll pay more attention to the beautiful things around and not worry so much about my "to do" list.
I did not blog, email or talk on the phone. My day was drama free.
Please take time for a "mental health day". It is so worth it.
