Last Sunday I had a complete vegie (relaxed) day after a full on working week.
I needed to rest my brain and just do nothing. Which I did in abundance.
During that week the old brain was firing on all synapses. I ran three of our Pozitive Kidz are happy kidz workshops in a morning.
The next day I travelled to Cape Schanck (Melbourne Australia), a tourist area on the coast, about a 90 minute drive from where I live.
I ran three workshops for Year 10 students on the theme of resilience, two workshops in the morning and one in the afternoon.
And on Friday we had three business meetings in town.
By the time Sunday came around, my eyes opened but my brain shut down so it was time to relax.
I woke up late, read a few pages of a Dexter novel and just meandered around the house doing as little as possible.
It was Chris’s day off.
And we all need our day off.
Yes, I know you have no time. You are too busy. You’ll do it later.
But if you don’t factor in at least one vegie day a week you will stress out.
And if you leave it go for too long you will stress out big time.
So if you are feeling down and out then go ahead and take a day off.
I won’t tell anyone.
I generally like to relax completely because of the high level of energy used in our presenting, facilitating and training work.
And occassionally I take a Ferris Bueller Day Off to unwind.
If I don’t I will unravel!
