You know the handful of emails you wanted to send off before the weekend? Those texts you were planning on replying to? And the dinner you were going to cook tonight?
Skip it. Let them go. Order takeout instead!
Why, oh, why would we suggest such a crazy thing?
Well, these days we’re surrounded by so much noise, with our phones constantly pinging and our calendars overflowing, and while it’s AMAZING to be able to do it all, it’s even more important to recognize you need time to breathe.
And have the awareness to know when the very best thing you can do is to let things go — at least for the day.
One of the best ways to practice self-care is to make choices that will uncomplicate your life, so you have more time to do Y-O-U.
Allowing yourself the chance to let things slide and instead opt for relaxation and fun not only boosts your mood and ups your happiness level, but shows love and care for your mind, body, and soul.
You juggle a dozen balls and deserve to step away for a day, catch your breath and take it easy. Guilt-free!
Now, if when you’re taking your much-deserved happy time out you catch yourself thinking things like … “I should do just this one thing though,” stop and remind yourself, “I owe it to myself to take it easy,” then rinse and repeat as needed.
You can do it all, but there’s no need to do it all today. Take some time to enjoy yourself — you deserve it.
To doing less and feeling more!

We’re all about gratitude journals to write down all the things we’re grateful for, but if you’re strapped for time or just don’t have it in you, consider a mug (really!), like this Cup of Gratitude. Whenever you pull it out from the cupboard, tell yourself one thing you’re grateful for — and start your day off the right way.
