I’ve got that tickle in my throat, the clogged feeling in my ears, and general drowsiness that heralds a cold.
Long nights, lack of exercise, and stress can definitely take a bit of blame for me starting October this way. The biggest culprit has been me not listening to my body. I haven’t given myself the boundaries I need to ward off illness completely. So today, I’m giving myself a sick day.
The nice thing about working outside the home is a sick day clearly means you don’t have to do your normal routine. Those 9hours I spend outside my home are now geared toward resting. Taking a sick day in a weekend is harder for me.
Weekend are usually my time to prepare and I had plans for this one! So I have given myself a new plan for today :
- No chores
- No budgeting
- Loads of tea
- No junk food
- Lots of time in bed
- No going outside
- No accepting invitations
I’m hoping that giving myself the space to be ill that I’ll get over it more quickly and feel better about myself.
ML’s away this weekend and I don’t want him coming back to a mess or having to play catch up to help prepare us both for Monday. So here’s my Sunday plans:
- Budget for October
- Tidy the main living areas
- Grocery shopping
- Plan clothing for next week
That list isn’t overwhelming and reminds me that taking time out to get better isn’t a waste of time.
Hope you’re healthy!
