It seems easy doesn’t it. Take time out….
Go get a massage, get a facial, have a spa treatment, or even go to the gym, a walk, or a coffee with friends.
Yet we are constantly drawn back to the housework, preparing dinner, making those phonecalls to schedule appointments, tidying up the house, or dare I say it, working and writing our blog posts.
Why is it so hard sometimes to give ourselves permission to enjoy a little R ‘n’ R?
“I should be doing…!”
Having trouble relaxing?
My girlfriend is going away to Bali on Monday with her husband. Just them…. Yep… kids are being left at home with their grandmother….
The kids have their routine, still in school, pick ups are organised, even a 7 day meal plan is stacked up in the freezer….
Their first couple time alone, no kids, for 7 years (or 8, or more… )
Your probably thinking, “I wish I could do that”. But I wonder how easy or hard it will be for them to “switch off” and relax. Not worry, not keep phoning back home, and be able to just sit and relax…
We all need a break.
We all need our batteries recharged…
That energiser bunny is such a mythical figure…. keeps going and going and going… I mean, I want to know the secret of those that can just keep going, and going and going….
So here is my pledge….
I know we all need a break.
I know that a facial treatment for our skin and rejuvenation should be made mandatory.
I know that with a little planning and organising we can all get away for some R ‘n’ R
I know that I am needing to go have a nanna nap and I need to switch off and give myself permission.
