Even writing the word gives me anxiety and this week has been one of those weeks. For teachers I’m always interested to hear about their summer plans because it’s honestly one of the most difficult times for me personally. Trying to balance between staying busy but relaxing usually ends up with me even more stressed out.
I had an awesome weekend celebrating my birthday with friends but the two days after were me laying around and when that happens I tend to get flooded, absolutely flooded, with feelings of guilt, sadness, and just overall yuck.
Today I was up early, checking things off my list, and while it’s not the answer to the problem it helps. I am constantly searching for the balance of staying active and busy while not over exhausting myself. It’s something I’ve really tried to work on the last couple of years and still, unfortunately, feel like I have so far to go. I would love to hear any tips and advice you have on relaxing and enjoying it, anxiety free.
This week/weekend is kicking up into high gear with friends coming into town, a busy weekend on its way, and leaving for Yellowstone/Montana/and then Canada on Sunday. Just reading that sentence has me out of breath 🙂 but for now, it’s the normal.
Let me know what you guys are doing this week/weekend! And what you want to see from Montana/Canada. Have a safe and fun fourth of July XxAbby
