One thing I’ve learned through COVID-19 is that it’s good and right to take it easy. For the past several months, I’d say things like, “It’s OK to relax; after all, we’re living through a pandemic!”
I’d snuggle into my pajamas and watch Gilmore Girls if I needed to. I’d sleep in when and if I could. I’ve become much more attuned to how to take it easy to preserve some joy and peace. More bubble baths. More walks. More relaxing evenings that aren’t so frantic to get things done.
If you’re feeling guilty for taking a break, remember to take it easy. We’re still living through a pandemic!
