There will be days where the simple tasks don’t feel so simple. Days where you know you could have achieved it all if your mind wasn’t so tired. Days where you try to get yourself into the mindset you now you can get into but for some reason today it just isn’t happening. Days where all of a sudden time has run out and instead of giving your body the break it needed you wasted a whole day pushing yourself to get through it but didn’t achieve anything at all. These are the days where you’re too burnt out to give it everything it needs, but for some reason you still try, maybe because you’re afraid of letting someone down, or letting yourself down. Why is there so much stigma around taking a day off when your mind doesn’t feel so good? For some reason, or maybe even no reason at all, you just can’t do it today, and that’s okay. Take the time you need to rest, to find inspiration, to remember all the little things make you happy. It’s those little things that help remind you who you are, and why you do what you do. Your mind wasn’t created to be “on” like this all the time, rushed and pushed beyond its limits, day after day. Normalise accepting this and stop forcing yourself to “just get through it” when you know deep down your mind needs a break. Look after yourself, look after your mind, and see what magic you’re capable of.
