Have you ever taken a staycation? As in, scheduled more than a few days off with no specific plans? That’s just where I’ve been for the last two weeks- nowhere but here, and it was great!
Granted, it is somewhat a challenge for self-employed folks like me to ever really “stop working”, but I did what I could to clear my plate and free myself up to do as little or as much as I wanted on any given day. I spent time reading, resting, working in the garden, writing in my journal, and painting. I walked around a local music festival, watched a few movies and cooked a few really tasty meals.
Taking time for oneself doesn’t need to be complicated.
