SELF-LOVE: Work on your dreams no matter what vs rest no matter what ๐Ÿค”

You need to listen to your body and rest when needed ๐Ÿ™
I have been working too much + had too much stress in November and December and I still ‘feel it’ in my body ๐Ÿ˜ซ. Even though i’m not working that much now in January, I have finally lazy weekends and sleep well ๐Ÿ›Œ, I still feel tired and don’t have that energy to jump into spiral of work ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ and have been taking it slowly so far in the 1st half of January and that’s ok ๐Ÿ˜‰. I’m still moving forward, just taking small steps.
:::
Don’t push yourself if you don’t feel like it โš ๏ธ. Don’t say “I’ll do it no matter what!” if you don’t want to do it โš ๏ธ. It may seem contradictory to me pushing you to follow your dreams and to work on yourself but it’s not, you just have to find that balance โš–.
:::
If you’ll be pushing yourself and not feel like it not only your body will give up and you will feel tired all the time but you’ll drop that dream/project quickly as forcing yourself to work on it won’t make you happy ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ.
:::
Create a healthy, individual routine for yourself ๐Ÿ˜Š. Try what works for you and what doesn’t. I work 8h at my full-time ‘normal’ job, then work 4-5h on my projects/dream and always need those 3-4h of rest in the evening when I watch Netflix with my husband ๐Ÿคฉ, workout and/or play PS4 ๐Ÿ•น. And as for weekends I work on my projects for couple hours on Saturdays (but not each Saturday) and always leave Sunday fully off to do nothing and let my body and mind rest ๐Ÿค—.

What works best for you?
