I'm having "One Of Dem Days". Remember that song by Monica? Her first album Miss Thang was pretty good. You may or may not, depending on your age. I haven't thought about that song for years, until I was thinking about the title for today's blog.
So yeah, I'm feeling kind of blah. Doing too much thinking about life, business, my mom, my future. And it's overwhelming me, but I will get through this. I'm taking time for myself and trying to be a better sister and friend. Although I don't think I'm doing a good job in those aspects. I'm a loner by nature, so it's a task no matter how much I love and care for a person, to be social sometimes.
~Work Breaks. This means taking a break when I need to. I've been taking most Saturday's off, for the last month or so and I kind of like it. The guilt of not working, is slowly going away.
~Walking. If I need to take a walk in the middle of the day to clear my mind, I do it. Exercise in any form is always good!
~Bedtime. Continuing to go to be in bed by 10 p.m. at the latest. This also means no social media, except listening to a podcast or audiobook, to lull me to sleep. It's a bad habit that I'm still on the fence about. Should I use it to lull me to sleep or should I fall asleep in silence?
~Baths. I'm back to taking baths in the evening. Partly because it's a great way to relax before bed and because I've had some high pain days, in the last week, from the fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis.
~Crying. When the tears want to come, I let them. I'm not a cryer in general, but since my mom died things have changed.
~Relationships. Just checking in with friends & family, with a simple text or message. If I can't call them up or see them in person. I'm working on this this.
~Positivity. Lastly, positive thoughts and words, to myself. No matter I rotten I may be feeling. I'm still not 100% convinced that it works but I'll continue to do this, in the hope that it will come to fruition.
I kind of forgot about that light thingy, for S.A.D, I was supposed to buy. I'll look into that today.
