Sunset reflections. //
I pushed a little too hard this weekend and feel depleted. Tired. Ready for a bath that feels challenging to draw by myself. //
I’m cuddling with my cat, laying down trying to get my system to reset and restart and retry. //
I find that sometimes laying down in the dark for 30min does more to help me feel better than any other trick I have. //
It’s like my body and mind have had enough: enough stimulation, enough lights and noise, enough exertion, enough. Horizontal is my only option.
I am finding myself really, really looking forward to some more time off from work again.
I’ve worn myself down in the last few months. I’ve got to rest those mitochondria again. And make sure that I don’t overexert (it increases inflammation and decreases natural killer cells, which I’m already low on). //
It’s easier to follow my doctors orders when it seems like the only option.
