Lately, I’ve been feeling like there isn’t enough time in the day to do everything I need to do. But, I do know from experience that stress has adverse reactions on my health, so I’ve been taking active steps to combat the anxiety and fatigue that come along with having way too much to do.
Put yourself at the top of your to-do list. If that means something else remains unfinished, don’t feel guilty. If you’re not 100%, you can’t give 100% to much of anything.
Over the past two weekends, I’ve traveled to my hometown, the Bronx, NY, to visit my family and spend time with my sister for two milestones in her life. Two weekends ago, I went up to help her get ready for her prom and last Saturday, I saw her graduate from high school! I could not be a prouder big sister. All that time with the family and a change of scenery definitely served as a breath of fresh air.
To save money, I usually do my own mani/pedis, but every now and then, a nail salon visit makes the world of difference. It’s relaxing, and it feels good to have someone else take care of you. While I was in NY, I took advantage of the salon prices (DC can’t compete with an $8 mani) and got a fab manicure. I’m into pastel nail colors this season, so I opted for Essie’s Turquoise and Caicos from their resort collection.
