Hey Nerdy Peeps! Last week was a doosey, and I wanted to stay in bed all day and do absolutely nothing. Depression was suffocating and anxiety held me down like a rock. Yeah, it was not a pretty week for me or my mind. So, I recuperated with a weekend of self-care.
4 Tips for Self-Care Weekend Recuperation
So, Jessie what exactly did you do? Well, let me tell you.
Tip #1: Take lots of naps.
Naps were a much-needed thing to get my mind back where I needed it to be, and when I woke up this morning I felt great. My mind was back on track and I felt relaxed and ready to conquer the week.
Tip #2: Escaped Reality through reading.
I read a lot and it was the best thing ever! I finished one book and got pretty far on the other one I have been reading. My current read is Instructions for a Second-Hand Heart by Tamsyn Murray, and let me tell you this it is absolutely the best book I have read in a while. Just wait for the review!
Tip #3: I did some painting.
No joke, I painted four canvases in a matter of a couple of hours and I loved it. It turned out to be very relaxing and took away quite a bit of stress. I’m going to start stocking up on canvases and paints. I can’t wait to see what other things I can paint.
Tip #4: Also, just my favorite thing.
Comfy clothes are a must for a self-care weekend. I mean you don’t need anything else, but comfy clothes, a throw blanket, sweet tea!
With all of those tips, you should have the perfect arsenal for a weekend recuperation. Self-care is the best way to go, take a nap, read a book, paint a picture, and wear some comfy clothes. Trust me you will thank me later!
