Since my birthday is Friday, I probably should have waited until then to take a mental health day from my day job, but for some reason, I felt that it was most needed today. I have been so stressed with my current day job that it has started to overwhelm me, even while I am off and at home. Yesterday felt as if it was a never-ending day and as much as I could not wait for it to be completely over, I had a hard time resting. So, I had made the decision to stay home today, even though, I am sure, my decision will come with repercussions when I return tomorrow.
Fortunately, I do feel that I was rather productive last night in my stressed insomnia. I was able to perform some work on my camming profiles, in which I am hoping will further encourage me to start working harder. Sometimes, I think we all need the encouragement coming from different areas to further encourage us to accomplish more than what we even think that we can do. There are so many things that I want to do, but I need to find the time to do it and thoroughly plan to make it happen.
Taking this mental health day was very needed for me today. Maybe, I need to figure out how to make mental health days an everyday thing. Honestly, this change of pace and not having to put on much clothing was nice. 🙂 By the way, this mental health day is merely a day off taken to try to regroup and refocus. I have heard that these days are good for the soul, but I work so much that I rarely take one. Do you?
