I started a full-time job in June, 2020. At the time, I still kept up with this blog. I kept up with eating normally. I stayed active with dancing. I managed to spend enough quality time working on self-care.
Fast-foreward to today. Thursday, November 12th, 2020. I am taking a day off. For myself. Alone. Well, one thing that I didn't actually plan on is having our dog Violet with me. But that is ok. She has been (mostly) chill. She does whine too much when I'm the only one around because I give her too many treats. But that's for another story.
Here is what I've done so far since I jetted out of the office yesterday at 4pm.
I encourage everybody to find a way to take one whole day for yourself every now and then. You will thank yourself. Your family and friends will thank you. And then, of course, your coworkers and boss will too. Because when you come back to them you will be feel better.
So, go on! Git! Make arrangements as needed (I should give a special thanks here to my parents for watching my son, my husband for being employed and being at work, and my dog for being as chill as she can be) and TAKE A DAY OFF FOR YOURSELF. ALONE.
