Raise your hand if you’re a procrastinator...
🙋🏻♀️ I am!
If you’re like me, sometimes you have so much to do that you can’t do anything. Anxiety/stress/whatever can overpower you and you just shut down. Happens to me a lot. Used to happen more often.
Somewhere in the past year, maybe even a little before that, I stopped worrying about everything. I stopped beating myself up over things out of my control. I stopped letting stress and worry take control of me. Does it still happen, do I still do it? Absolutely. But nowhere near like before. And I know how to handle it so much better now.
We can’t be “on” all the time. We have to allow ourselves time to relax and reboot without feeling guilty.
Sometimes, I’m not even aware I need it. My body forces me to. And that’s ok!
It’s ok to sit down and just need to stay there for a while. It’s ok to put things off for a little bit. Obviously, if there’s a deadline or something, then you need to figure that out (find a way to still get it done or get an extension or something).
Yesterday, I didn’t run errands because I wanted to get stuff done at home. I didn’t. I ended up in my chair binge watching Hulu and reading. I laid in bed a little longer this morning because I didn’t wanna get up. Even after I got up, I stayed in my sweats, but I lounged at my desk and managed to get some stuff organized and things checked off my to-do list. Then, I finally got up and did my workout from yesterday. I felt better after, but still didn’t wanna go out in the rain to run my errands.
I’m doing it anyway. And while I’m gonna try to get some studying in tonight, I also plan on curling up in front of the tv to continue my binge. 🤷🏻♀️
Find your balance.
Let’s think about this for a minute...🤔We are living in a digital era where you can pursue anything you want. You can educate yourself on most anything that you want to learn about and you can do it from the convenience of your phone 📲 or your computer 💻 and yet, so many people are still living lives that they don’t like. Why is this??? •
Do you remember when you were a child? Do you remember when you had a huge imagination? Do you remember when you were present and thoroughly lived your life, enjoying every moment? •
Go back in your memories of playing in a sandbox or going to the beach 🏝🏖 You probably played in the sand and made little sand castles or structures... and you know the best part?? You didn’t care if what you were creating was good or bad. You just wanted to get your hands dirty and try building things. •
There’s something extremely powerful about this imagery💭 You used to give yourself permission to dream 💫 You used to not care what others thought about you. You used to life your life fully and weren’t afraid to try new thing or even fail. •
This whole week has had me confused with what day I’m actually in. Today is definitely a Friday. It feels like a Friday.
The sun is shining & that makes everything a little more brighter. I really enjoyed cooking from scratch whilst the kids were on the summer holidays so I’m trying to keep up with it...which is hard when your brain doesn’t want to function. I’ve had a few things this week which were store purchased & they’ve made me feel like crap after. Don’t get me wrong they tasted nice but the awful brain fog after puts a massive downer on the day. So where possible I’m making sure we make our meals from scratch.
Happy healthy minds make happy people. And I like being in the kitchen with the music on loud just cooking away. It’s a “me” moment. #vegan#veganfood#veganandglutenfree#plantbased#plantbasedvegan#mumlife#mylife#family#glutenfree#coeliac#vegana#remembertobehappy#happyhealthymind
