A practise in creating happiness and content
Sunday well spent brings a week of content right? Welp, in the case of this lady it sure will… I haven’t been doing enough of the switching off on weekends thing, I’m going to fully acknowledge that. I’ve been going so fast during the week that by the time the weekend rolls around I’m shattered but have had the mindset to ‘just keep pushing on’ and keep juggling. It hasn’t always been this way, which is why I think I’m conscious of it now, I’ve experienced burnout before, I don’t want to go there again and it was time to pull myself up on this so I don’t.
This weekend I decided was going to be the start of some nourishing within again – not push to go out, not juggle too much, take naps (2 hours yesterday – 2 hours?!?! WTF that never ever happens but clearly my body was ready), go to the gym and take walks at my leisure and not punch the clock, eat yummy curry on the lounge, watch lotsssss of movies, read books, spend hours with my gorgeous girls chatting, having cuddles with bubbas, and spending an afternoon cooking in the warmth of my home.
And you know what, not surprisingly, I feel bloody awesome! So awesome that I thought I’d pick up a basket and smile at the vegetables to show it?!? 🤭That aside ….whilst I know not every weekend will be like this one, it has been a great reminder that I CAN SLOW DOWN and when that happens I feel a more wholesome human for it. Slowing down can be hard (mentally) when you’re so used to going fast, and when you decide to action the change it’s a tad confronting at first but then you adjust.
I thought I would share this, be open and honest because whilst it may SEEM like life is roses and rainbows for some because of social media, remember that we all working through our shit at different times and for different reasons, and that’s life, so long as you, we and me remember to take care of ourselves too.
Lovely humans I hope this weekend brought you some rest, and this week brings you content. Much love, Jacq xx
