Happy Monday folks! Every time I type that, it sounds like such an oxymoron. And happy October! This year is absolutely flying by.
When I started my resolutions project in January, I was rested. I was ready. I worked from home, I didn’t have many responsibilities, and I welcomed new challenges with open arms!
Now? Not so much. Between graduate school, working at my practicum site, and helping with the high school choir at our church, my time is hardly my own anymore. And I’m perfectly alright with that – all three are things that are stretching me out of my comfort zone and growing me as a person! Plus, all three are things that I love, even in moments of stress and multitasking.
Plus I have this little thing called a blog to maintain…
The moral of this story? I need some more REST in my life. I need a little RESPITE. Now how am I going to get this, you ask? Considering I just named off about ten different things currently on my plate.
Well, that’s the beauty of these resolutions! Setting a goal to add a little more rest into my life makes it more manageable, even if it’s just an extra ten or fifteen minutes a day. This month, I’m taking care of my mental health. I’m taking time to rest and to process and to recharge – all necessary things!
Will it be my most productive resolution this year? Probably not. But it might be one of my more important ones…
Do you find it difficult to take time to simply rest? It’s a Generation Y problem for sure!
