I hope everyone had a wonderful warm weekend! I can't believe that February is almost over. My semester has been flying by so far...It's already week five and the first round of papers is going to be due soon. I've got so much to do but I am enjoying my classes so far and I am learning a lot. Sometimes I have so much work looming over my head that I get super stressed if I'm busy and unable to do it. A big part of being a social worker is learning to take care of yourself, to step away from your work and just relax. I've been trying to take the time to do this, whether it is watching a TV show, reading, shopping, or taking a quick nap. Saturday was a beautiful day and I spent some time meeting up with friends before I dove in to write a paper that I have due tomorrow. While working on my paper, I took a small chunk of time to relax, drink some hot chocolate and have some quiet time to myself.
I definitely hope to be incorporating more moments like this into my every day routine!
