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:
Snuggle with something soft
I have two snuggly cats that sometimes let me hold them 🙂
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?
