Sometimes Nothing Is Okay

Seeing as I was sick, I put absolutely no demands on myself today.  There was nothing I absolutely had to get done and whatever I wanted to do was okay.  Normally, unproductive days seems stressful to me.  Getting absolutely nothing done, which happens more often than I would like to admit, stresses me out.  I sit and stew over the wasted day.

That day was not today.  To be honest, I was surprised that I did anything at all.

    I am the exact same way. Stewing over a wasted day if I haven’t been productive. But, it’s good that you forced yourself to listen to your body. Resting and healing are necessary so that we can get up and be productive another day! Hope you’re feeling better soon!
