We moved house! Now Tangerine Man’s and my commutes make our days m-u-ch longer.
And Today? I’m tired and overwhelmed. So I gave myself the option to: “Be Lazy”. Do you need some time out to recharge too? Take a day off if you can, or reserve yourself an hour. Here’s my short sweet list of simple suggestions…
Live Bold List 41: How to Be Lazy (5 Things to Try when you’re Tired and Overwhelmed)
- Do your own Thing. Ignore Everybody Else. Thanks, Leonie Dawson for stating that plainly, repeatedly. Great when you’re getting comparisonitis pains, too.
- Rest without Guilt.
- Minimise Commitments. Apart from taking care of any kids or parents you’ve acquired who need you! And take care of you just as kindly. Minimise the rest.
- Make something, if you feel like it. Don’t demand of yourself to make something for a reason. Pick a low barrier (for you) ‘making’ task & doodle, fingerknit or bake something easy. E-a-s-y makings only. E-a-s-y. Ok?
- Walk in nature. Today’s not the day to try to beat your running time or distance! Today’s the day for a longer than usual walk. Rhythm. Movement. Time to allow the air and repetition to make you new.
These ^^^ are also good ideas as society slides down the slippery slope to Santa and Summer! :P *Big breaths*

It’s often the simple things, isn’t it? :)
