@alliseeiz : For a long time I fought off the fact that I'm not a ‘chill and watch Netflix’ kind of girl. Don't get me wrong, I love Netflix and can enjoy a nice binge every so often. But more often than not it depresses me more than recharges me, and ain’t no one got time for that. In order to recharge emotionally, mentally, and physically so I can't be at my best as a mother and a creative, I have a few go-to's.
First, I do best in a clean and organized environment. Even though it's much easier to ignore my home and focus on work I find that chaos in my house leaves me feeling tired, foggy-brained and a little grumpy...ok REALLY grumpy.
Second, I have to move my body. This isn't about being a certain size or looking a certain way (we try not to place value on that in our family). Exercise, for me, is a mental game and it leaves me feeling happier and more capable as I go through my day.
Organization and exercise are safeguards. They protect me from my mind which has a tendency to take deep dives without my permission 🙄. It's change though, that helps me unwind. A new restaurant, a weekend adventure with my people, a new hair cut or color, the spontaneity and unexpectedness of change wake me up. It pulls me from the monotony of motherhood and the tedious task that is video making and reminds me that so much life is going on all around us if we just look up, breathe it in, and allow ourselves to be apart of it for a little bit. #motheringatwork .
How do you rejuvenate, unwind, and ensure you’re functioning as your best self?
