Blog-tember, Day 16: Stress-Away

Funny the timing of this prompt. After three and a half weeks of powering through school, my body said, "Nope, time for some rest." So it's three days of self-care before diving right back in.

Friday, Sept. 16: How do you de-stress/take care of yourself?

I'm not great at self-care.  I go, go, go and I say yes, yes, yes probably longer and more than I should. Self-care feels selfish. But self-care is a game changer, something I've learned the hard way only to forget a month or a few days later.

Lately, or when I am intentional about it, self-care looks like extra sleep, relaxing on the couch, reading for fun, and illustrating my faith. I can absolutely tell when I haven't been getting or doing enough of it, and this is one of those times. It's one of those seasons already.

Today is a day for self care. I've called in a sub for work (#strepthroatproblems) and I'm staying in bed. ALL DAY. I might read, I might watch more Once Upon a Time, but my body needs to heal. It's time to start listening to it.

How do you prioritize self-care?
What do you do?
