I’m a little late posting this but I just was thinking how there is nothing quite as sweet as winding down from a busy and packed week at work. #workinggirlchronicles
I think often times we (myself included) are so wired to believe that everyday should be bustling with activity of some sort, that we forget how wonderfully fabulous, and necessary actually doing NOTHING can really be. It’s freeing, it’s salacious, it’s inviting and it’s a vital part of self-care just to be able to get away from it all, and be able to attune to your own thoughts and desires into what is actually good, healthy, and beneficial for you and your soul and body. And can I say I truly indulged in my NOTHING Saturday. I know the next couple of weekends I have coming up will be jam packed with activity so I NEEDED to just unwind and let loose and RELAX.
My greatest desire all week was just to lounge around in my sweats and a tank top once the weekend hit. Friday night I got a real craving for breakfast but I was so out of it I could only find the energy to have a bowl of cereal (yayyy for Cinnamon Toast Crunch) and hit the hay. But that desire stayed with me all night so I was like why not turn this into an all out lazy Saturday complete with a breakfast I normally wouldn’t have time to enjoy during the week? So that brings us to where we currently are. My fabulous personal version of breakfast in bed complete with a scrambled egg and potato veggie bowl, green smoothie and watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Directly following this, I had a wonderfully rejuvenating mid-morning nap and munched on some snacks and just lounged around my apartment.
What are some of your fabulous ways to wind down from your week? I would love to hear from you!
