Resting is easy for some people. Some people love to sleep. They love spending the day with nothing to do – not a single thing on the agenda. Some people love naps. Me? I just don’t believe in them.
The first piece of advice anyone ever gives me is just to: RELAX. For me, it’s easier said than done. I am a routine person. I call myself a creature of habit. Like many of us, I have very high expectations for myself. Sometimes too high that I only set myself up for failure. I strive for productivity every single day. And when I don’t meet a daily goal, it’s natural for me to freak out.
Being abroad has taken me completely out of of my routine. It is forcing me to learn how to relax. I am taking unforeseen off days. I am learning to go with the flow (slowly....) I am learning that in the grand scheme of things, I won’t ever regret taking an off day to see the world. The things that ease your mind are supposed to do exactly that not stress you out more when trying to fit it in the schedule.
I’m not changing who I am abroad just evolving into a better version of myself to take back to the states. Nonetheless, this view was worth the off day.
