So often I start to flip the panic switch in my brain when I can’t sleep… because I believe that I KNOW that I’ll be overcome by anxiety, exhausted, irritable and so on. I’ll be angry.
That’s been the situation too many times lately. I takes time to affect change, to see what will work and what won’t.
In the meantime, I’m taking about 8 minutes to slow down, to deliberately pause and cut myself some slack. I usually find it easier to do things like this using music. I’ve been listening to “Peaceful Day” and I really enjoy it. It’s very short. It’s beautiful. It’s restive. I think you might like it. Check it out!

The music is lovely. thought about you a lot last night. We had an interactive panel discussion on “Exploring Self Care”. They had a panel of 5 of our personnel, including an occupational therapist and a psychologist. The audience was free to chip in at any time. It was very well received and residents asked about a regular group where they could air “pain”.
I hope your weekend goes well.
Hey, thanks! 🙂 I appreciate that! I will certainly check it out!
