Yesterday I needed to compress from a lot that’s been happening.
Fortunately, my brother and I had a day off together for the first time in a while. I had started a new job, he got new hours, and we were never able to spend time together. Yesterday was a good day.
We sprawled blankets, we ate snacks, we played Monopoly and CAH and Diablo III. We watched Game Grumps and The Frighteners.
It was nice.
It was a day I needed.
Today, I face my problems again. But I’m better than I was two days ago.
Take moments, even in times of stress, to relax and not think about those things. Not thinking about it won’t make those problems go away, but having a moment of not thinking will give your brain a rest. And a restful brain is a more productive brain.
Take a break, then face your problems.
