This week I hit a wall. Do you ever have that? Where you just keep pushing forward juggling life’s responsibilities (like those on the job, at home, or in the community) until you can’t push any longer? When this happens to me, I usually get sick. Side note: my immune system may also be suffering from the constant exposure to sickness working as a somewhat new dietitian in healthcare — despite the copious amounts of hand sanitizer I’ve applied. (For more on this, read last week’s post on Immune Boosting Foods).
Anyway — when this happens I need a serious recharge. I think we all need this from time to time. For me, this means looking at all my responsibilities and making sure I’ve got my priorities straight. It is far too easy to let my roles as a dietitian and a mom come before my duties as a wife and a follower of Christ. It also means that I need to take more time for self-care, because it’s hard to give of yourself as a wife and mother when your teacup is empty. This is how I am trying to reprioritize my time this week:
With that all that being said, I’m off to start this recharge with some rest and relaxation!
How about you? What do you do when you need a "recharge?"
