Cure for Holiday Frazzle
Submitted by Pam on Mon, 12/05/2016 - 18:38
Feeling a little frazzled and maybe your brain is fried? Take an UNSTRUCTURED Day. You will be amazed by its restorative powers. Trust me. I know stuff!
An unstructured is a day you set aside for yourself and make no plans NONE NADA. Mark off a whole day - all 24- hours - on your calendar and when that day arrives do ONLY what you WANT to do in that moment. Even if it is nothing. Sleep all day, stay in your pj's and knit, read or watch old movies. Eat Chocolate cake all day. It is not important what you do. it IS important it is what you really really want to do in every moment.
Even if you have young children, with a little advance planning and help from a friend who will reciprocate, you can do this.
And it will make such a difference. It is not about what you do but that you are spending the day in the moment and doing only what strikes you that you want to do in that moment.
Set the day aside, make advance plans if needed for meals, kids, etc, take a sick day, and then on your day just show up and let the day unfold.
