It’s been a relatively productive day. Productive for me anyway. I cleaned the house, got my nails done and walked my dog. You’re probably thinking “what’s so great about that, I do that stuff every day”. I usually struggle to do tasks one after the other, saying that I didn’t do it all one after another, I took breaks. In fact, my day didn’t start until this afternoon.
My mornings are typically slow. I stay in bed for about an hour, check my messages, social media and the news to see what’s happening in this crazy world. Once out of bed I make a drink and sit curled up in my dressing gown on the sofa. By this point I’ve usually established what kind of day it will be. I woke with a headache today and usual aches and pains in my joints but not severe enough to stop me in my tracks. So I decided today, I will get stuff done!
I cleaned the house bit by bit, taking a break in between rooms. If I didn’t take those breaks I wouldn’t have been able to do the other parts of my day.
I called the salon to make a nail appointment, luckily she could fit me in this afternoon. I didn’t get anything fancy, just a gel manicure to help strengthen my nails. It was nice getting out, even if it was just to my local salon.
Once home, I sat down and had a rest. I decided since I feel up to it I’d take my dog out for a walk. Today is my favourite type of weather, it’s not cold but it’s not hot and there’s a slight bit of wind. This weather is my favourite because I can be outdoors and not be majorly affected by the weather. I enjoy walking, if I could I’d walk miles but I can’t, so on days like today I really appreciate it when I’m out – especially if it’s my favourite weather too.
I’m back home now, in my comfortable clothes. I’m going to make a hot chocolate and rest for the evening.
Although I’m now tired, getting sore and have a still have a headache, I feel happy and satisfied with my day. I can go to sleep tonight knowing that for me, it was a productive and successful day.
