There’s something about a day of recharging alone at home, uninterrupted, no tasks. It’s a special reprieve, a way to realign with self and life. Spending an entire day under the covers with the goal of doing “nothing” other than listening, reconnecting with self is rewarding.
I didn’t shame myself for getting nothing done. I didn’t think of all the things unfinished that I “had” to do. I didn’t do anything other than lay in bed, listen to my body, reset my thoughts (any that I didn’t want there,) processed emotion as it arose. I let myself deeply relax. I took naps, ate food that made me feel good, made sure the whole day was about me. I took a Me Day.
It’s not selfish to take care of ourselves; it’s selfish not to. We forget that we are an energy system, sometimes not optimized. Self-care is crucial and gets everything done. Without it, we become ill and non-functional.
Listening to our body can save us an immense amount of pain, discomfort and ineffectiveness. Take time to recharge, realign, renew. Your life and everyone in it will thank you.
