So next week is the big week: a week of vacation!
Since I’ve been feeling fairly anxious my therapist recommended that I do a strange thing and relax this vacation and work on finding my balance again. Being me I began to worry that I wouldn’t know how to relax. I fall into the trap of feeling like I should be doing something if I’m too relaxed. I’m a list maker so I did what I do best and made a list of things to help me relax.
In the spirit of vacation, it’s not a true list it’s a selection of ideas that I can choose to do if the spirit moves me:
The little green box on the bottom is the ‘have to’ list. Notice how small it is? This way I can’t add stuff to it.
I’ve got to admit that I was also a bit afraid that a week vacation may be an excuse to blow the budget but all the relaxing things are free. The only cost I can see is some additional eating out as ML and I want to do a pizza/pj day with each other and maybe go out for dinner.
Our plan is to have easy to make food and a selection of snacks so we’re not worrying about menu planning or dishes.
If you had a week with a prescription to relax, what would it look like?
