Sometimes I feel overwhelmed. My schedule gets away from me, there are too many phone calls, errands to run, things on my to do list. I’m behind on reading blogs, paperwork is piling up, I can’t remember something and I think it was important. Things start to feel like burdens instead of blessings. I feel tired and cranky. Then I know. It’s time for a pajama day.
So tomorrow I will stay in my pajamas all day. That doesn’t mean staying in bed, although I will probably laze in bed a bit later in the morning. It means a day to myself with no agenda. I give myself permission to read, watch TV, meditate longer, eat when I want to, drink my favorite tea, practice tai chi in the back yard, turn the phone off (and maybe the computer).
A day to recenter and refresh. I’m looking forward to it.
What do you do when you need to replenish your reserves?
