Last week, my constant on-the-go-ness finally caught up with me and I came down with the beginnings of a cold. There's nothing worse than getting a cold when it's still 80 degrees outside, ugh. On top of that, I found myself in a mental funk. Some things from the past had crept their way back up into my head and I couldn't shake it. I struggled through the second half of the work week and finally made it to the weekend. I vowed to take the time and relax and take care of

I actually slept in both days, an amazing feat considering my biological clock will let me do anything but that. I got some housework done, binged on tv shows and movies, and just rested my brain. It was such a good feeling to not have any plans looming over my head. Even though I felt completely miserable on Saturday, I woke up Sunday and couldn't believe it when I felt 1000 times better than the day before.

If you're feeling down or out of the norm, take some time for a little r & r for yourself. Trust me, you'll be happy you did!
