After a challenging day at work, a meal and a small glass of wine in the garden is just what I need. It’s great having daylight for longer in the evenings; the sun was shining and the birds were tweeting as I typed this.
It’s also made me realise the importance of having breaks. It’s easy to get in from work and rush around doing things for family such as washing, cooking, clearing up, helping with homework etc.
Just ten to fifteen minutes catching up with yourself is crucial for your wellbeing and frame of mind, and it also allows you reflect on your day. Stresses can eat away at you if they are not addressed and in times of pressure it’s easy to react in a way that’s just not you.
Top tips: say no when you want to say no, pause before reacting and take time out.
