This weekend I finally learned that the best way to care for myself is to rest. Rest meaning lay down, cuddle up with a warm blanket and a good book, and read until I go to sleep. 2 naps on Saturday, 2 on Sunday, and 1 today (plus 10pm bedtimes) are what carry me through my days.
I'm beginning to recognize (3 months into this journey) that I need more than a power nap or a rest-stop shut-eye. I need sleep, deep sleep. Makes sense, my body is sick, and bodies heal the most during our sleeping times.
As I've been listening to Christmas songs this season, I'm surprised at how many songs have the words "sleep," "slumber," "rest," "still," "relax," in the lyrics. There's a message here I need to pay attention and remember -
This has funky graphics, but the music will definitely bring you relaxation!
May you find sleep, slumber, rest, and time to be still this week - Merry Christmas -
