Normally I start out every weekend with a cup of coffee and a nice big breakfast (eggs and waffles made by my wonderful husband) while creating a mental checklist of everything that I need to accomplish. Laundry, grocery store, a workout, exercise for Clyde, and on and on and on. I think I feel like if I can't look back on Sunday night and check off a zillion mental boxes then my weekend was a waste.
At the same time, I think having a mental break and a chance to recharge your batteries is under-rated. My job can be stressful and demanding and working in sales I think you have to be "on" all the time, which means that sitting in bed in my sweatpants and zoning out can be so very appealing. So this morning, that's what I'm doing. Sitting here and typing in my PJ's with Clyde snoring at the bottom of the bed and Ice Loves Coco (yes, I'm embarrassed to even admit that) blabbing along in the background. I'm still thinking about what I need to get done today... a BarreAmped class at 3 p.m., a couple of query letters, some laundry... but at the moment I think they can all wait.
A morning in bed does not a lazy bum make. Maybe that means I will be more productive later. Maybe not. Either way, I'm giving myself permission to veg out.
What do you do to relax?
