I needed a mental health day, so yesterday I took one.
And the world did not implode! Who knew. I read an entire book yesterday.
This is new for me; not the reading a book part, but the other one. See, I generally work at least a little most days. I do it because ‘work’ is fun, and I feel pretty close to figuring out a new next step for myself. But taking time off usually includes a few twinges of guilt. When you work for yourself, when your income completely depends on you working, and when there’s always something to do, time off is way more complicated than I ever remember it being.
Maybe that’s just me.
But a couple of things became glaringly obvious to me yesterday – I need to take mental health days more often. So much easier said than done, but I’m going to give it a try. So, for the next little while, my posting schedule here is going to be lighter than usual. Just until I figure a few things out.
I need it. And I’m close to a few decisions, I can feel it.
What do you do on your mental health days?
P.S. I took this photo recently, and I kind of dig how the edits make it look older than it is. Photo and editing by me, texture’s from the Florabella Textures Set III.
