On taking a day off

Yesterday, I skipped my scheduled writing session. And boy did I feel guilty. Instead of being a busy beaver, I ended up sitting and watching Grey’s Anatomy until the early hours of the morning (not that that’s necessarily a bad thing). Then, I chose to go to bed instead of staying up late and cutting into my sleep.

When I woke up this morning, my brain was ready to write with ideas appearing left and right. And I realized something. Sometimes it’s okay to play hooky and sleep eight hours. Sometimes it’s okay to slack off. And embracing your need to relax is important.

I was silly to think that working every day, seven days a week wouldn’t take it’s toll. So let this serve as your reminder, take a break! Treat yourself to a full night’s sleep.
