Taking a “Time Out”

So this week was more stressful than most. This week we moved into our new town home, which is great, but also comes with a lot of stress.
I was packing weeks prior, getting paperwork in order, doing taxes… you know, life.
The old me would have kept pushing, not taking any down time, and eventually “snapped” at someone, leaving us all off in a worse situation.
But the new me said, “no”; we need a time out. So I did just that. I went to my local Walmart and sat in one of those massage-y chairs at the salon and just sat, drank coffee, and enjoyed.
About five years ago, I would have said “those people”, the ones who enjoy things, are nuts, because they should be going at full speed ahead—all. the. time.
But no, these are the people who understand, within balance and reason, that enjoying things, taking a break, it’s necessary.

And you know what I realized that night, after I did such a simple act of taking a “time out” for a pedicure? That whole night went differently. I had just as much work on my plate, but everything went smoother; I felt more relaxed, and recharged. It was $30 well spent and a half an hour in heaven.

So I’d ask all you ladies in particular, to give yourself permission for an adult “time out”… because you NEED it. ‪#‎timeout‬ ‪#‎relaxation‬‪#‎rechargeandrefresh‬ ‪#‎womendoitall‬ ‪#‎businessboutique‬‪#‎moneysavingmom‬.
