It’s been a long week.
Like many of you I have had a hard time dealing with the onslaught of tragic news this week, including Thursday’s mass shooting in Indiana. I hope you can find some time and space for self care this weekend: sleep in a little bit, go for a walk, watch your favorite movie. Whatever you need.
I’ve been thinking about self care a lot this week. After getting my second vaccine shot on Tuesday, I was feeling pretty tired and a bit out of it, which isn’t atypical. I took advantage of a wellness day my company has offered and took the day off to recover. I might have been able to muddle through work, not doing my best, but my mental and physical health improved because I paused, slept in and focused on the signals my body was giving me. When I was tired, I napped. When I felt better enough to walk my dog, I stepped out into the sunshine.
I present three adorable pictures of a very good girl.
“This is Fidji, Havanese girl,” says Agnes Poirier. “She was born on March 18, the same day I started teleworking. I am so grateful to have had (her) during these difficult times.”
I’m so glad you had her too. She seems wonderful.
