For me that day was today. I have been doing too much and stressed close to my limit. I've not made enough time for myself and still can't get everything done. I've been worrying and feeling frustrated enough that people around me have noticed. That's clearly not fair and is a point of change.
Today I got up early so I could accomplish things and avoid feeling groggy. Then after a nap I was invited to a friends house for tea. Two hours in a quiet house with a friend and I'm feeling very different then this morning. I didn't mention any of what I've been stressed about. I relaxed and I chatted and I finally spent a couple hours not worrying about what's happened or what's going to happen.
What a wonder afternoon. Sometimes we need quiet both inside our minds and outside our bodies. No TV, no kids yelling, no traffic. Just quiet and calm.
I encourage everyone to do what they need to feed their should. Read or nap, chat or write, whatever it is that makes you feel calm. Its not selfish or a waste of time, it is as necessary as feeding your body. It leads to a healthier family and healthier relationships.
