Sometimes in my wellness journey, I just have to withdraw from everyone and focus within. It’s funny that on a day which was my work anniversary as well as Administrative Professionals’ Day, there was very little acknowledgement. And I liked it.
The fourth Wednesday is always Board Meetings and Committees, so I didn’t even see my boss. Most other managers were at said meetings, else they soon headed offsite (or called in from behind closed doors).
It was a quiet day for me, and I found I could complete my work tasks easily and without interruption. I thought about how grateful I am for employment and benefits, and how most people I work with are actually pretty nice. Once I saw that everybody had the documents needed for the subcommittee meeting, I ventured to a favorite restaurant for curbside delivery, which I brought back to work and feasted upon at my desk.
My quietness continued even after I got home- the television never got turned on, and my kids chose to read. The absence of a blaring television was music to my ears. We snuggled as we read our perspective books, enjoying our separate stories and our togetherness. We giggled at family photos from years past.
Just as I thought “I didn’t write a wellness post today-“ I realized I had my topic: right here.
What did you do for your self-wellness today?
