Are the holidays over yet?Gosh!. They seem like never-ending. Being a stay at home mom and trying to run a business and a blog is such a challenge. You have to be right on task and also be well prepared. So what you have to do? Come up with a plan. Well, well! Sounds so simple right? But it’s the hardest part. My kids’ vacation had started in December, and I still feel their holiday season is not yet over. I wanted to get so many things done and today finally when they left to school all I was thinking was.I need some “Me time” Imagine me screaming my lungs out!.
Over the holidays I tried my best. But nothing worked. I wanted to wake up before kids could wake up and get some work done. But. It did not happen. If I woke up, the kids would wake up. They would only sleep if I slept. Kids would sleep through till 7:00 AM when they were going to school, but they decided not to do that during the holidays. On top of that, the cold just made me snug under the warm comforter. I thought ok if morning is not working, let me do the work in the night. Guess what; these little monsters would not sleep till I slept. Again!.
Oh well, things are getting better now. But I need a plan and some actionable items to keep me going. There are so many things to do, and I cannot delay any further.
So before I could start, I thought I need to bring in some peace and tranquility to my mind and body, which will give me focus path on what I need to do and will also allow me to rev up my creativity. So I thought, what are the different ways to make myself sane? Below are some of the ideas I came up with:
- Take long walks
- Read a book
- Go for a run
- Take care of yourself
- Pamper yourself, take a long warm bath with aromatic and natural salts which will help you relax.
- Cook some yummy food: Not a surprise that food can make you calm. Prepare some delicious food. Treat yourself. It needs to be simple, colorful and super tasty.
- Listen to some fantastic podcast. (This reminds me. I have to write a post about a podcast.)
- Watch a fun movie: Not for too long ok!.
- Gratitude notes: We often forget how lucky we are. Our emotions take over and dictate how we should feel and what we should do. They tend to tell us we have not accomplished anything in life. When you write down your gratitude and why and for what you are thankful for, you will realize how far you have come and how far you can go. So take few minutes be thankful!
