Why The Hell Not! are posts I’m going to do from time to time to remind, not only those of us with chronic illnesses, but for all of us to do something for ourselves. Something you may not have thought of doing or something you have wanted to do for a long time. Nothing is too silly or frivolous. The time to do something for yourself is now because…why the hell not!
TAKE A SHORT BREAK!
The days leading to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are busy, hectic and stressful. Even if you’re having a quiet Christmas or you don’t celebrate it, many around you are stressed and rushed because of the holiday season. Be kind to yourself and take quick breaks throughout the day. Have some tea or coffee. Listen to a song or two. Do some stretches or massage your neck. Shut your office door. Find a video of your favourite comedian and have a laugh. Put your feet up.
Hide in the bathroom for a few minutes if you must!
But, take that quick break to regroup and recharge. You deserve it.
