Calm in a day

We sometimes don’t realise that taking just one day off can reduce that feeling of overwhelm and chaos. It could be that you are disorganised with the washing, have unorganised paperwork, can’t find time to put things in their place, or you just want to find places to put those things.

Today I took a long-awaited day off and although I could have quite easily stayed in bed for longer, I motivated myself to get the kids ready for school and then off to the gym. It was hard work as I hadn’t been for a while (had just been doing lazy swimming instead only once a week). I didn’t push myself too hard in the gym today but managed to stay there for 45 minutes doing something!

I tackled some tough things on my to do list during the rest of the day until school pick up time.

It’s just after 6pm and I’ve just taken the dinner out of the oven – which is a lot earlier than normal. The kitchen is tidy, the music is on in the background, I’m shaking my hips to Robbie William’s Rock DJ, and I’m feeling rather pleased with myself.

Try taking some time out for yourself now and again, even if it’s just for one day.

Until next time…
