I'm making this a mental health day

Sunday, April 05, 2009

DH and I had a rough week. And this coming week will be rough, in a different way - two and a half days of work; have a 6 AM special service blessing the sun (it's the Birkat HaChama, happens every 28 years); fly to Philly for Passover with his brother and some of the family - first one without their mother or aunt; drive to NYC to spend time with the sons of his friend who died last week.

So I've decided today will be my day to do not much. To be good to myself. But not go crazy. I can read. I can watch movies DH hates (I love Jane Austen - or "An Ideal Husband" based on an Oscar Wilde play). I've had a latte and croissant (and banana and 0% fat yogurt) for breakfast, I'll continue to eat well but with health in mind.

I will NOT do any work. Not even work on my taxes (we'll file for an extension, DH is further behind than I am). And I got in a 30 minute walk this morning, so I can walk more if I want, or I can not walk if I want.

I get to choose. I get to relax. I don't need to push myself today. I don't need to worry about anything or anyone. Because my brain needs a rest.

    Thank you. It made me more relaxed just reading about your relaxing plans. I think I'll take a page from your book and do some of the same.

    Really there is nothing so pressing that it can't take a back seat to some peace of mind. The sun shines and awaits me.

    Shalom
