#selfcaresundays – April 5th, 2015

to: me

This week I want to talk about letting go as a form of self-care. This week, I decided after weeks of contemplation to let go of my volunteer work. I was so happy to get accepted to volunteer at the beginning of this year but stuff happened and things changed. It was probably one of the toughest decisions I have ever made because it is volunteer work that I truly love.

I found it hard for me to quit volunteering because I was “quitting”. I’m not someone who just gives up when things are tough but it is something that I felt I had to let go because I knew that I may not be able to complete my commitment. Knowing that caused me a lot of stress because I began thinking, how can I fulfill my commitment, I won’t have enough time, etc. When volunteering became a chore and a stressor, I just knew I had to let it go. It was causing me more anxiety than it was anything else and that is when I knew I had to leave.

Have you ever found it hard to let go of something even though you knew it was causing you more stress than relief?

Today, this household is a sicky household. Both my fiancé and I are currently sick and most likely different sickness. I have a cough which I think is due to the weather changing and he currently has a fever.

This week’s self-care is rest, which I am going to go get back to. Hope you are all feeling a lot better than we are here.

PS: For those who caught it, my boyfriend proposed a couple days ago. Proposal story to come.

Sometimes you just gotta dance it out. Last night, I went out with a couple of my friends and we went out dancing. I hadn’t gone out in awhile, so it was definitely a much needed girls night out of dancing and laughter.

I’m so tired today, but it was soo worth it.

What fun thing have you done for self-care recently?

Honestly, my self-care this week has consisted of sleeping and working out when I am not too tired to work out. I think that doing a little bit of cardio really helps make me feel less fatigued. So, I’m trying to incorporate at least a little bit of cardio more often in the week since I have just been so tired lately. Need those endorphins.

What helps you when you are tired and sleep just is never enough?
