“To experience peace does not mean that your life is always blissful. It means that you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life. ” – Jill Bolte Taylor
So I have, like most of the nation been suffering with January blues, January is by far the worst month, I’m still sad Christmas is over, I’m feeling bloated and slightly heavier than normal, it’s cold and it’s just so damn dark! *Note to self, book a holiday for January 2018, somewhere hot with lots of day light.
I normally don’t have duvet days unless I’m very poorly, the idea of spending the day in my pyjamas doing nothing fills me with absolute dread and guilt. I can usually last 30 minutes before I’m showering and thinking of all the jobs I have to do, so I talk myself out of relaxing. But last Sunday after a week of scraping the ice off my car and feeling like a vampire, living in the dark, I woke up and dragged my duvet done the stairs, grabbed some snacks and got comfy. Now when I do anything I do it to the extreme, I went from never having a duvet day to not moving for 16 hours and what better way to pass 16 hours than watching all the Harry Potter’s. I bloody love everything and anything Potter and can’t just watch one of the movies and what better way to self-care then having a movie marathon.
Sometimes we just need to take a whole day to ourselves, we need time to recharge our batteries and if I’m honest just do something for ourselves because we want to. And if that involves a few tears that’s ok too!
My next duvet day is absolutely going to be a twilight day.
