Feeling Like Yourself After A Long Week

 My last week was a blur of pick-a-shift-any-shift at work and no sleep.

Somewhere in that blur I got to air a story I’ve been working on for weeks, attend a really thought-provoking class for journalists, and co-host a fashion show for cancer survivors…so it wasn’t a bad week, it was just a really busy week. 

By the end I felt like I was stuck in a loop : work, sleep , eat when you can, repeat. 

I wasn’t doing anything creative, I wasn’t hanging out much with with friends I just wasn’t feeling like myself. 

When I finally made it to my weekend, I was more than ready for a re-charge. 

If your bank account is set up like mine, a weekend getaway somewhere sandy & sunny isn’t an option … lol I listed out some things that helped me below. 

I hope they help you too!

Do something creative 

For me, this meant planning future blog posts and going out and taking some pictures

Go see something pretty/ Go for a walk 

I explored a nearby park I’d never been to, and even found a new picture spot!

Read something interesting 

I started ‘Game of Thrones’ a while ago and hadn’t picked it up in a few weeks.

Start a new podcast 

Here are some of my favorites:

Dear Sugar

Gilmore Guys

The Moth

Pop Rocket

We’re Alive

Snuggle with something soft 

I have two snuggly cats that sometimes let me hold them 🙂

Organize something 

I just bought a new shoe rack from Amazon … and I could feel the knot in my right shoulder loosen just a bit as I collected my shoes from around the apartment and put them all in one place.

bonus : I get to stop tripping over random heels in the dark.

How do you re-charge after a long week?
