Mad Monday

Mondays seemed crazy before the pandemic. Now they feel even madder.

The weekend brimmed with activities: celebrating birthdays – eating special meals, making a cookie cake, picking up boba tea drinks, opening presents – in addition to the usual doing chores and cooking.

My tension headaches decreased in intensity for awhile. Spending time with people does that for me. Especially when I can relax with my kiddos and my friends.

Then Sunday, anticipating preparation needed for the next day and week, brought the stress right back.

One thing I’m doing to bring more sanity and wellness to my life is dressing up. Since March, with social distancing due to COVID-19, I haven’t bothered getting out of the casual wear. But dressing up is usually important to me. Putting on a skirt or dress is something I enjoy doing and makes a difference. I also love accessorizing, like wearing necklaces and wrapping scarves. So, I’m going to start dressing a bit fancier again.

What are you doing during this pandemic to be good to yourself?

The pictures and your font are conducive to a sense of peace, regardless of how upheaveled (is that a word?) your life seems to be for you. Thank you for that. I hope you decide to share more here.
