Chilling out and enjoying a lazy Sunday afternoon
I've been looking for one of these days for a long time now. I love to lay on my hammock and recharge. On this lovely, Sunday afternoon I found my time. Everyone was busy doing something else inside the house, at the park, around town. I took advantage, left the dishes and laundry to fend for themselves and took in the breeze and the rays.
I work hard all week long. I deserve this time but somehow I manage to put everything else before my needs. Time to make some changes. Life is too short to waste it doing dishes. After teaching five classes, running 6-10 miles, and working 30+ hours interpreting, social working, talking I am way overdue for a little break. Don't get me wrong. I enjoy every bit of everything I do, my body, however does not agree with the constant running. Even if it did... why not take a break, it's called, RECOVERY!
In an effort to help my body perform to the max in the upcoming week I need to allow for recovery time. This is time well spent recharging, rebuilding, and reenergizing. I think I have a date with my new hammock not just on Sundays but maybe I can steal a few minutes every day. Is that too ambitious? I guess I'll find out... Go chill out!
