The Importance of Self-Care

What do you do to recharge when you’re running on fumes?  Your patience has worn to the point where if you have to “redirect” one more student, you’re going to scream. You don’t even want to step in your sewing room. Your normally pristine home looks well lived in. You literally want to hide from everyone.

Overwhelmed. Depleted. Empty.

When I get to this point, I generally need to take a day off – get in the car and road trip to a body of water.


That can’t happen right now. So, a mani-pedi and Starbucks chai tea latte were a good start once I got home this evening from a rather long day at school.

Here’s hoping an early bedtime and an hour spent reading for pleasure will refill enough to get me through tomorrow. That’s all I need. One day at a time.

Spring Break is coming!
