Feeling restless so I unplugged this weekend!

Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Meme by – Unknown

I’ve been feeling very restless this week.

There’s been a lot of drama going around work for the past few months, quite a number of people have been leaving, and the remaining people are either picking sides or just trying to keep their heads down and remain as invisible as possible.

Since I have a long-term plan in my mind for my work, I’ve been trying to be one of the invisible ones, doing my job and not getting sucked into the drama.

The result of purposely trying to remain invisible is the restless feeling inside of me which has been building, so this weekend was a total unplug, watch movie after movie kind of time.

It’s now Sunday evening. I’ve packed my breakfast and my lunch for tomorrow, and I’m thinking of going out for a walk to get some fresh air.

I don’t often get to have a total unplug on my weekends, there’s always something to take care of.

For once I didn’t have anything I needed to do, no one I had made plans with, and I decided to just do nothing. Even doing a little playing with my alcohol markers on a piece I’m working on seemed more work than fun.

Doing nothing was perfect!

I realized that I didn’t even feel guilty about doing it. Learning to feel okay about unplugging was quite a learning curve.

Of course I unplugged in the past, but feeling guilty about doing it was part of the deal. I envied people who could just do things to feel better and feel quite comfortable about doing them.

I hope you guys had a great weekend and managed to make some time for yourselves!

Do it! You deserve it!

  1. Unplugging is a good idea – I was struggling at work to focus on anything. I realised it was pointless sitting doing nothing so I switched off early.

    It made me realise I need to unplug so I’m going to take some time off soon!

    Hope workplace drama resolves soon, it’s never fun getting caught up in it.

    1. It’s between powerful people and not just mere underlings, so the trickledown stress is real! It hasn’t resolved yet, so I’m learning to pace myself! 😬😬


  2. Hope you’re feeling better now and honestly we all have times when we need to do nothing and just relax on our own with no interference. We live such lives where we’re constantly doing something and that’s just not healthy.

    1. Absolutely! Yes, I’m feeling better! I’ve learned that feeling restless and uneasy is one of my signals by body sends to me before I fall down the rabbit hole. I wasn’t physically exhausted but more so mentally. Taking care of myself physically is something which helps me tremendously! Thanks so much for reaching out to me and checking in!

            1. Very true! Denial of the whole situation in the name of being “strong” is bogus, as I have come to see! Recognizing it in the beginning isn’t “weak” as the “grind” philosophy dictates, it’s just finally getting smart to the downsides and allowing our mental and physical health to be a priority!

              1. Absolutely- there is nothing wrong with feeling down sometimes and having to put our mental and physical health first. People who deny everything end up exploding at some point because they never dealt with anything and now don’t know how to.

    1. Thanks! I may need to just start planning solo weekends away. I like that idea! Work will continue its drama fest for some time so I just need to plan to keep myself out of it and keep myself refreshed in spite of it! This isn’t the normal interpersonal drama stuff, it’s bigger, company drama. Draining to observe because it can end up affecting the company.

    1. Thank you for your encouragement! Yes, I’m really happy that I can now recognize my needs when they happen and not stuff it down or ignore it until it reaches a critical point which couldn’t be ignored.
