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!
