have an “All you can sleep” day
All day long
Yesterday, I decided to sleep as long and as often as I needed to all day long.
It was a sunny Sunday.
Kids playing with their cousins in the living room, I stayed in my bedroom for a long time.
The morning went fast. So fast that the first time I looked at the clock, it showed 11:30 AM.
“Still tired. You should go back to sleep”, said my best self to self.
I always listen to my best self so back to sleep I went.
A little while later: “Wakey wakey. Time to take care of me”, said my stomach.
An egg, bread, olive oil and a hot coffee with cream, I felt like resuming my morning where I left it.
Going back to bed with 2 magazines and a book.
Half a magazine later, my cousin joins me, then Duderina comes and we Google hangout with a friend of mine in France.
Curtains closed, my bedroom felt warm, moist, semi-dark, smooth. Like a womb.
From which you can communicate with the outside world but in which you feel totally safe and comfy.
A place in which you have nothing to do but take care of your basic natural needs.
Bond with people around you.
Make yourself a beauty to meet with the outside world.
And just like that, the day went by.
Today, at the coffee place near my summer rental place, here I am, feeling fresh, rested.
And ready for whatever comes on the way.
May luck be with us my friends.
WHY IS IT SELF-CARE? When we sleep, we help our bodies and minds restore the strenght needed to maintain our physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual balance.

I personally rarely get enough sleep but I really wish I could.
I do even worse: in the afternoon, around 5 PM, I sometimes take a coffee to help me stay awake in the evening in order to be able to do things while the kids are asleep.
I know that sometimes with sleep, the problem is falling asleep so I want to share with you one of my sisters’ tips.
