Because of all of this PLUS lesson plans, I have been really stressed lately. I feel like I'm constantly on the edge of an emotional, lack-of-sleep induced breakdown. I have been working really hard to make sure I have some wind down time every day, some time just for me. I usually fit this time in after my shower when I'm all warm. I change into my pajamas, take out my contacts and cozy into bed. I like to watch an episode or two of a T.V. show and write in my journal. This is a great way for me to deal with what's on my mind and really hash it out. It's seriously like the stress floats out of me and on to the page. If you don't write in a journal, you really should. I always feel...clean when I'm done. Another favorite past time is painting my nails mostly because it makes you sit still and relax for 30 mins.
P.S. Can you tell I'm really digging this pretty shade of light blue right now? Very relaxing.
