Have you ever given yourself permission to sit and read a book? How about permission to skip mowing the lawn until tomorrow night? Will the world come to an end if we don’t get it done? We need rest to be the best we can be.What about permission for other things like being sad, happy, silly, or feeling lonely? It’s okay to have these feelings as well. As adults, I believe we push those things aside because we don’t think they are important or we feel we are being selfish. These things are just as important as the physical things we need to do. One of the things my counselor told me was to say, “Sandy, you have my permission to be mad”. “Sandy, you have my permission to take a 30-minute nap”. Saying things out loud seems to be more effective. It’s amazing what this can do for your well-being. You are giving yourself a gift when you give permission to have or do something you need, and I believe this will help you be a better you!!!
