I read a post yesterday on @thebirdspapaya feed & it really stuck with me.
It seems like at the moment all we have is time, yet I feel so overwhelmed with trying to keep everything afloat.
I realised that while I may have the time, I don't have the capacity. I can't do it all & keep on doing it all.
I suffer from severe insomnia but the last few nights I have lain awake for literally hours, my mind just won't stop.
Home school, finances, health, nutrition, YouTube, family, pets, it's all racing through my mind, filling it to capacity.
So today I'm switching off. I ran on the treadmill, had a bath & I'm going to watch my favourite youtubers then video call a friend.
The boys will play ps4 in their pyjamas all day & eat junk.
Because I have all the time, just not the capacity.
It's ok to switch off now and then, in fact it's mandatory.
