Do you know what the solution to being overwhelmed is? Besides buckling down and actually being productive, of course.
A dinner out with the Husband was exactly what I needed after a long work day. He got a margarita; I stared at it with intense jealousy. The lack of boozy fun aside, a meal out felt so nice and luxurious. No food to prep, no dishes to wash. Just 45 minutes to relax and b-r-e-a-t-h-e.
We went to Cantina 1511, a really great Mexican restaurant. I got corn tortillas stuffed with veggies, black beans, and cheese. So… much… grub.
And chips. Lots o’chips.
So. There you have it. I took your advice, slowed down, and made a conscious effort to relax. And it felt awesome.
