I feel you, I’m feeling super burnt out lately too. What helps me keep it at bay is meditating on a regular basis. I use an app with guided meditations – it really helps me feel centered and calm in the midst of a lot of stress. For your weekend staycation, what about…

– Going for a hike if weather allows, or trying a new (fun) physical activity like rock-climbing

– Picking a museum to go wander around

– Taking a fun class, like a drawing or cooking class 

– If you enjoy cooking, pick a new recipe to try, put on a favorite podcast or tunes, and sip a glass of wine while you’re making it 

– Go see a movie or theater production

– Check out a comedy club or improv show 

– Round up friends and go to a bar trivia night

– Have a stay-in boardgame night

– Make a reservation at your favorite restaurant

emmabird :  I planned 30 Day Shred to make it through! I’m finally at the point where I want to work out after work, it’s great. But really, it’s taken away quite a bit of my sluggish-ness. There’s a board on here where a bunch of us started it ๐Ÿ™‚

I love lighting a nice candle (particularly lavender) and sipping a glass of wine in a quiet, distraction-free room after all my chores for the day are done. I just focus on how classy and adulting I am and it boosts my self confidence way more than it should.

Try downloading the Sattva app on your phone – it’s free. It has some easy guided meditations you could try- my favorite is Blossom in your Smile. I have been meditating for years and it’s really great for relieving stress at a deep level and brings a lot of clarity as well. These meditations are pretty easy – you just need to follow along to what they’re saying. It’s best to do it in a room with no distractions, in comfy clothes and sitting up and on an empty stomach (no eating within an hour or so). Then you can go about your day a whole lot lighter and happier than usual! ๐Ÿ™‚
