I have been on fall break this past week. My goal was to work on all the areas I felt like I had been failing in for a while.
First and foremost I needed to get back to praying more. I felt like I was carrying around problems on my shoulders that I had no control over. I had to give them over to God to handle. I’m sure he was thinkng “why she carrying that heavy load when I can carry it for her?”
I also needed to get back to being more healthy. I need to lose some weight and get more fit. So, this week I started the 5k runner app, and if I only get to a mile jog and nothing else. I’m okay with that as long as I know I did my best. It’s been four years since I tried to jog. I have only did the app this week and it’s helped me feel better. My Fitbit actually has peak minutes. It’s been a while since I’ve seen those. I’ve not eaten the best but I am making better choices and since I’ve helped my stress level I’m not doing the nighttime binge eating I was doing.
Then I also wanted to do small things that made me happy and feel better about myself. Things I enjoy like writing, photography, or more simple things like watching a movie and drinking a hot cup of cocoa.
I have to say just doing these things this week has made me a better person. Self-care is important! If you take care of yourself it makes it easier and less stressful to take care of others and to also do the work that is needed or required from you.
I’m hoping to continue these things when I go back to work. The time needed to do these things could be achieved within an hour. I think I’m worth and deserve an hour. Make sure you are taking care of yourself.
Remember, you can’t pour from an empty cup.
I hope you enjoyed this post, thanks for reading, and God Bless
