I did what I said I was going to do. I took 2 days to myself.
I watched movies. I cried (a lot). I slept in & took naps throughout the day & caught up on sleep I desperately needed. I didn’t leave the house for 2 whole day. And the best part is it’s really helped. Doing things that made me happy really made a difference.
I feel like I’m ready to get back out there & deal with my day to day life.
It’s amazing what a few days of doing nothing can do for you.
As I said sometimes you really need to do that for yourself & just do what makes you happy.
I think it’s a good idea to set a time limit for yourself. Take a day or a few but don’t spend more than a week doing it cause we all know how quickly we can fall into a depressive slump. And we don’t want that cause it takes a lot more effort to get out of them.
Do what I do, send your loved ones a message & tell them you are taking some time out to get yourself together. Trust me its better to tell them as they do worry about us. They will be happy you told them & you will be happy that you aren’t bombarded with called & messages when you are taking some time out for yourself.
Don’t get me wrong you won’t be fixed (so to speak) after a few days of time out from the world but you will have recharged your batteries to deal with what’s to come next.
Look after yourself, be kind to yourself & take time out if you need it. You’ll be glad you did.
