Yesterday I took a "sick" day from work. I'm finding this year that I have to take what I need when I need it because it will never be given to me and there will never be a better time for it than right now.
This year has been the most crazy and stressful year of my life thus far. We went through a huge merge at work as well as building a new building and moving the company into it.
Carl has been pretty sick a couple times and there have been a lot of changes with the kids. Life has been pretty intense.
Finding time to relax has been the most important and most difficult task this year. Actually being able to wind down enough to really calm down for awhile has also been hard for me.
This past weekend was supposed to be a chill weekend. Everything started snowballing early in the week and by the weekend things were packed full and any and all relax time was gone.
I hate to feel like I'm leaving people to do all the work. I hate to call in sick when I'm not. Unfortunately I also know that getting time off work just isn't going to happen.
I needed a day to do what I wanted to do without having to please anyone but myself. I call days like that my mental health days.
After taking a day for myself I feel so much better about things. I feel like I can handle a lot more than I could just a couple days ago. I can think better and I can do more before the stress hits me. I'm more refreshed than I've been in months.
