Today, I woke up and felt obligated to start checking items off of a mental to-do list which included taking out laundry, cleaning the apartment, buying food, and more. But I also woke up tired from having thrown a big party the night before. My body felt achy, and I knew I needed some TLC. So I made it my first priority to do things that would help me relax and re-energize.
I went to the gym to hit the sauna and to do a bunch of stretches. I ate a healthy lunch. I got a chair massage and a foot/leg massage with some birthday money from my great aunt. I read the Sunday NY Times on a bench in the sun. And guess what? I still had time to buy food and tidy up the apartment AND to watch Tina Fey receive The Mark Twain Prize for Humor.
So glad I tossed that to-do list. Had a great day as a result!
