Last year, at then end of my hospitalization, one of my therapists gave me the advice to plan something for every day. In the beginning I was eager to follow his advice, I would be outside for a walk or would clean the house or would meet friends, I would do anything really.
But after a few weeks I grew more and more frustrated because I honestly felt so stressed out, felt the need to occupy myself all day long and I wasn’t feeling very good at all.
It was only a few weeks ago that I realized he was right but I had failed to see that planning to relax or do nothing for a day is a plan too.
Today, after long and busy days, I sit down and particularly plan to not do anything the next day.
I plan to sleep in and pamper myself and plan to not hurry around to finish tasks or feel guilty about doing nothing and boy you should try it too, because it’s one of the best feelings I’ve ever experienced so far.
