Every once in a while, everybody needs to take an emotional day. To de-stress, to unwind, to rebalance a life that is far too skewed towards work work work and not nearly towards me. Which is why I started my day today with a 90 minute massage, and now, at 5pm I am Way Too Sleepy to work. Yes, some genius idea. So anyway, I’ll blog instead to stay awake.
(note: 5pm might be home time for most of you but this is basically 9am in my day so like, I’m screwed.)
I generally try to put a tonne of effort into improving my emotional and mental state. Probably more than my physical state, to the absolute dismay of my super healthy other half. Quite often I’ll eat something unhealthy and he’ll look at me oh-so-judgmentally and say “there is zero nutritional value in that.”
And my response is generally, “oh but it makes me SO HAPPY!”
Which is true.
I get so happy when I eat something that I love. It’s actually kind of hard to explain to the general population but you food lovers, you know what I’m talking about, right? The intangible high, the super-charge of endorphins just because before me sits a bowl of gelato, a juicy burger, a big nachos with pulled pork (!!), a good spicy Har Mee, or… a sinful Krispy Kreme donut filled with caramel honey & macadamia nut ice cream.
Yeah, y’all feel me.
Go forth and look after your emotional selves!
