Mental Health Days

I need a mental health day, y'all. Real bad.
I have been going non-stop for what feels like years.
This is what I wish would happen:


Do you ever take mental health days? I have grown up with this idea. My mom used to let us skip school every once in a while when we were kids. Once a month or so, she would let us stay home. We would play games all day, go outside, have a picnic, pick apples or grapes, or run errands with her. Those days were the best.

 I was talking with my small group last week about how tired I felt. I told them I was going to take a mental health day soon and they had no idea what I was talking about! They thought I was crazy. I didn't think it was that foreign of a concept. 

In the off-chance that you haven't ever taken one, I highly recommend it. It's such a great chance to step outside your normal routine and relax. I am not able to take them but once a semester because of the education school's rules. But the day I take off? So glorious.

What do you do to step back and relax? I'd love to hear suggestions that don't involve taking a whole day off.

Hope you all are having a stress-free week...because those are the best kind!


  1. Mental health days are a must! They always give me the extra boost I need. Sometimes I use them just to get things done that I don't normally have time for. Even though I'm still "working" it gives me peace of mind to check things off my mental list. Hope you had a nice mental health day. It sounds like you earned after a successful first day of subbing!

  2. I love this picture! There are so many days I wish were canceled and I could go back to bed! cute blog! :)
