It's no surprise I've been a lot low lately. Last time Therapist saw me she thought I looked happy and healthy, or at least as happy as I've been as of late. Last Thursday, I was just done. Nowhere near the lows I've felt in my past. To my credit, it didn't feel like the end or that I had nothing to live for. I did question whether or not my life was always going to be this Up and this Down and this Downer, but when you've lived your whole life that way, I think it's pretty typical.
So I'm taking this weekend off. In a good way. I laid down to take a nap yesterday at 6:30p.m.... I woke up a couple times, but all-in-all I slept through til about 8a.m. this morning. I've been exhausted, and ignoring myself. Time to listen to my body.
When I woke up this morning I had a nice day back at the gym. My first in a while.
Then I stocked up my fridge with spinach, green apples, celery, grapes, strawberries, and cucumbers. Juice/Smoothie cleanse! Just a short one.
I feel toxic. I need to take care of me. Physically, leads to better mentally.
So, here's Haven's tip of the day. Take some time off for you. But it's conditional. I don't mean gobbling up bon-bons and flopping in front of the telly all day. Health and movement. Do something rejuvenating that is actually good for you.
