On the drive home from grocery shopping I just couldn’t stop yawning. For some reason my body was telling me it was time to head off to bed. The funny thing is that I don’t feel overly sleepy or anything. After doing a couple of things around the house I quickly realized what it was. I feel totally relaxed and rejuvenated!
That weird signal my body was sending me was that it was totally chill, so chill that I could lay down and go to sleep. This weekend has been busy, but it’s been filled with productive activity along with fun activity like watching Gavin play a couple of soccer games while Dominic refereed the same couple of games. It’s been a sweet combination of productivity, home time, relaxing in between activity, and getting things done. Throw in a weekend that’s already provided almost 20 hours of sleep and I’m feeling more relaxed and rejuvenated than I have in a very long time.
What I’m most grateful for today is the deep state of relaxation and rejuvenation this weekend has provided. The past 48-ish hours have provided exactly what I hope to have each weekend. I’m excited and giddy to get back to work tomorrow as I can feel my energy tanks have been completely topped off. Heck, I might even get another 9 hours of sleep tonight just for good measure!
Something that I’ll certainly be thinking about over the next few days is what led this weekend to feel this way. Yes, there have been pockets of relaxation, but we’ve been largely in motion the entire time. It’s not like I’ve just been laying on the couch all weekend or something. Somehow I think I happened to luck into a crazy sweet balance of work, rest, sleep, activity, and choice of actions to take. I’m not sure how exactly I pulled it off, but I’m definitely going to try to emulate this in the future.
