OVERWHELMED?????? How often do you experience this feeling? How do you deal with it and try to decompress? I must admit. I feel overwhelmed quite often. Which is okay, somewhat. I know I take on too many roles, responsibilities, and commitments. Last week, probably was the most overwhelming week of the year.
Monday started off shaky and the week got progressively worse. By Thursday, I could not take it anymore. I went into work at 2 pm. That morning, I got waxed. Then, I went to Barnes & Noble and just walked around for an hour and a half. It was so therapeutic and relaxing. That resulted in purchasing 8 books. Then, I went to Forever 21 and experienced a little retail therapy. After that, I walked around my neighborhood for forty-five minutes and enjoyed God’s natural creations. I love Snooze AM Eatery. It’s on my way to work. I had a late breakfast at 12:30 p.m. alone. Just me and my thoughts. It was delicious as usual.
When I arrived at work at 2:00 p.m., I felt so revived and refresh. Even my client noticed it. She said, “You look so easy breezy today.” That’s when I knew my mission was accomplished. I needed that “me” time. Time to myself to relax and clear my head. My brain was mentally exhausted. Seeing two celebrity suicides in one week will definitely bring some attention to mental health. Our mental health is just as important as our physical health. And in actuality even more important. Our bodies react to the mental and emotional stresses we feel. We can’t ignore the warning signs.
Be sure to take care of all you! How will you do that this week?
