I admit it, I have had my feathers in a ruffle this week. I’ve been overwhelmed, stressed, and anxious; I put too much on my plate and found myself off balance. So, thanks to some great advice from some mentors of mine, I had a day of mellow yellow time.
Today, instead of being productive, I went shopping. Well, actually, I had a 90-minute massage, a luxurious mani/pedi, lunch out by myself for no reason, and then I went shopping. My soul feels refueled and my mind has been recharged. A day like mine today is not realistic for everyone, but I know for sure that some variation of it is. Yes, I do not have kids or dogs and my boyfriend lives an hour away from me, so my limited responsibilities give me the freedom to do anything I want all day, but assure you, this kind of day is possible for anyone. I wish this kind of recharge day upon everyone.
Take one for yourself. Even if you just take five minutes, take that mellow yellow time for yourself. I promise you, the return on investment is enormous when you take care of yourself, so make a decision to do so.
