Self Care Sunday: the transformative power of being alone
It’s no secret that I’m all about self-care—especially on the weekends. I try as much as possible to use the weekend to rest and recharge for the week ahead, but it doesn’t always happen the way I intend. Sometimes my plan to lounge in bed all day reading a book is derailed by a last minute invite to a party or someone wanting to go to brunch. It all seems innocuous enough at the time; why shouldn’t I do those things? I like hanging out with friends and it’s not as if I have anything else to do! But I realized recently that sometimes having a day 100% to myself is exactly what I need to recharge—even away from the people I love the most. I also realized that I don’t have to stay in bed in order to do that.
