I finally went on my long overdue staycation, and I can confidently say that I’m back now, more refreshed and recharged!
Last week was a stressful one for me as last week was my first week truly back doing my online course, and the coursework this time around is really heavy, as I do have submissions every week. To top it off, things are getting pretty hectic at work, what with the year beginning to wrap up, and we need to start planning already for next year. As I was so busy, I wasn’t able to feel very balanced as I would push back the things that I know make me feel less insane during insanely hectic times like this. I won’t do that next time!
The past couple of weeks definitely took a toll on me, which resulted in me trying to take it easier although I still had to balance work with chores. That, being more kind to myself, having a more positive attitude, and more sleep helped improve things a lot!
The last couple of weeks have definitely taken a toll on me, both emotionally and physically. That, combined with other not so great unexpected surprises that kept on throwing me off caused me to have mini meltdowns for around three or four days straight, which was not fun at all. Thankfully, I was able to have therapy this week, and I came out of it with more realistic goals, and a better mindset to tackle everything that will be thrown my way in the next couple of weeks. Aside from that, actually getting a lot of sleep and sleeping in a bit of Sunday helped a lot.
To be honest, that was one of the most tiring weeks I’ve had. Aside from the fact that so much has been going on, my family is now two weeks in without a household staff and with us (mostly us five children), really doing chores. We, especially me, are still adjusting, which has undeniably led to moments of frustration especially when my expectations don’t match up to reality. (In all honestly, even though the chores are divided, it’s really hard work to maintain a house that’s three stories high.)
