It’s my birthday this week so one of my actions for the week is to be extra nice to myself. I’m only two days into my week and so far I am struggling. I think part of it is that I am feeling the stress of being 5 months unemployed and still no prospects. I am working on my Revitalize Me project here and making some slow progress but I have to say that I have been pretty grumpy this week. I feel like I fell off the happiness train :P.
I did get outside for some exercise and fresh air this morning, shovelling :(, on the first day of Spring the snow did not improve my mood. I need some sunshine!!!
Although it won’t be especially warm tomorrow we are supposed to get some sun. So my plan is to grab my sneakers and get out there for a walk. I need to shake off some of this gloom and I’m hoping that will help. I have yoga on my to-do list for this week as well, so I need to get my butt in gear, literally.
I also solicitied some advice from friends on how to be extra nice to myself. The answers were pretty run of the mill, from eating chocolate to a bubble bath and wine to a mani or pedi. Nothing earth shattering there. I ate chocolate today and that didn’t really help, perhaps I need some booze.
I’m open to any and all suggestions so please feel free to leave some. Or if nothing else, wish me a Happy Birthday, maybe that will help!
