Hey everyone, how are you?
It has been an interesting end to the week and so I am allowing myself the weekend off.
This weekend, I am not putting any pressure on myself to get any writing done. This does not mean that I won’t write throughout the weekend, just that I am not going to make myself get x amount done by the end of the weekend. I want to just allow the writing to happen when it happens as well as giving myself some time to relax. This is because at the end of the week I ended up in a psychiatric hospital for just under twenty four hours. As I spent time in the hospital I had the time to think and reflect on my situation. And I thought about writing a lot and how I am trying to do too much in too little time and that is not helping my mental health. As much as I like writing, I know that I need to make sure that I plan it out a lot better.
This weekend, I am going to be resting and sleeping mostly. As I have had a lot medication that makes me dopey lately. And a side effect of this is tiredness. So, I will be catching up on sleep and just allowing myself to recover. I do want to get some drum practice done, as I know that it is something that will help me to get back into a routine again. I also, think that drumming will help to spark some creativity and also help me to relax. This is because drumming and music in general has a calming effect on me. I will be listening to music throughout the day in a bid to help keep me calm and chilled.
I am also going to be reading throughout the weekend as I have so many books that have arrived in the week that I am looking forward to starting. Reading is another thing that helps to keep me relaxed and calm. As with books I can just throw myself into the world created by the author and leave this real world behind for a bit. It is like a bit of escapism and sometimes it is a nice thing to do. I am just going to do things that allow me to recuperate so that when it comes to Monday, I will be in a better place to hit the ground running.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
