What is that?
Since becoming a Mum a day off is certainly a laughable concept.
But we CAN take it easy. We can give ourselves a day off that will allow us to rest and rejuvenate.
Remove your list of have-to’s for the day.
For one day (and it won’t matter) take time out that you need.
Today I’m not going to leave the house (unless I want to).
Today I am not going to do any washing (unless it takes my fancy)
Today I am not going to cook (unless I am inspired)
Today I am going to lie on my couch, play with my children (if I feel like it) and do what I want to do.
I have low energy and that tells me I need to rest to recharge again.
We need to learn to listen to our bodies instead of keeping on keeping on.
Otherwise we are super-stressed, uber exhausted and unhappy with our lot in life.
We feel put upon for the activities we are commited to and the tasks we have to do on a daily basis.
Take the break. You really, truly deserve it.
