I find myself doing a lot of this lately….
My version of a reset button, whenever life gets so demanding….
when the girls are talking at high pitch, at the same time and my ears start to ring,
when I’ve just cleaned an area of the house, and I turn around and it’s messy again
when I’ve got too many ideas in my head & I don’t know where to start,
when the laundry piles up and you have your own Mt. Everest in your closet,
and more recently…
when your brain has literally fried due to over stimulation of the internet and technology
I had to step away yesterday from the blog, from twitter, from instagram…but somehow, I couldn’t escape the clutches of facebook.
I felt like I couldn’t think, I couldn’t process like I normally do. The pages in my head were blank, and I was a lil’ more irritable with the girls than usual.
So I stopped, and the girls and I walked around the mall.
Even though it wasn’t as serene as, say a walk around the lake…it felt good to be out. We took our time; and when we ate lunch, we ate outside and the summer breeze felt so calming.
I need to remind myself to stop every once in a while. I’m always “busy.” Always wanting to get things done, that sometimes I forget to breathe.
Do you have a reset button?
How do you guys find time to relax?
