This babe here has been spending the whole beautiful day with me inside as I rest up from being sick.
Once again, I have done it to myself. I’ve been over working. It’s kind of funny, I kept telling myself, you can rest when you get to the weekend. Literally days without taking a single break from anything, not even sitting down for 5 minutes without multitasking something....I can’t be the only one? When will I learn?
I’ve been hustling and grinding, in flux of multiple jobs and taking on too many responsibilities so sleep, rest, and self care has taken a way back seat.
So I’m stuck with a fever, sore throat, splitting head ache and achy body. I have no choice but to stay in bed all day...it’s been over 24 hours in bed. Kind of like binging on rest and recovery.
Hopefully I learn from this, these unexpected illnesses that kick me in the ass, they seem to get worse and more intense as I get older.
I am living proof that balance is everything. Rest is a necessary ingredient to life.
Btw, no amount of aspirin, which I normally don’t take, got rid of my head ache, my essential oils helped eliminate it and clear up my stuffy head, Hell yeah essential oils! That’s why I love them so much.
Anyway, best dog ever award goes to Basil, for hanging with me when all she wanted to do was ball and go for a run, that’s why she’s my best friend ❤️🐕 #rest #selfcare #sick #slowdown #bedridden #essentialoils #doterra #dogsofinstagram #basilthedog #mydogisthebest #beatfriend #recovery #takecare
