Sleeping Beauty…

I am slowly waking up and stirring after my longest rest / time off in over a decade. I finally, after a very emotionally draining and challenging autumn and winter, gave myself permission to STOP. I have spent the last ten days drinking a lot of tea, sleeping in, going to bed early, reading and seeing friends. I have done almost no work and I feel GREAT!

It is amazing how hard it is to stop and just rest but I had very much got to the point where I was unwell and, increasingly, unable to cope. I realised that the fear of stopping was no longer bigger than my fear of what would happen if I didn’t.

I know that I am very lucky to have the time to do take this time off. i also know that many of us have the time but do not take it: we watch TV instead of sleeping, we scroll instead of going for a stroll. How you spend the bulk of any down time you have DOES make a difference.

I wish you all the strength and courage to rest when you need to and before you HAVE to.
