Today is day 3 of some time off I have taken from work. I took three sick days to rest, recuperate and tend to doctors appointments and tests. Hoping to find some answers to my health woes has not exactly worked out, but the time off has been good for me. I take self-care seriously, but I also have lapsed as of late. Its much easier to forget to take time to take care of yourself than it is to stay disciplined on a regular basis. It’s a short week for me as I go back to a full day of work tomorrow, but then am off for my regular days off on Friday and Saturday. Hopefully this time of rest will be rejuvenating for me on so many levels. We live in a very busy culture and I know I take on a lot of stuff. Self-care has always been a part of that, but needs to become a more significant part of my day. Life ebbs and flows and rest and a time to stop is an important part of that flow.
