I celebrated new years and new moon a bit too intensely and my body said NOPE! Anne! What are you doing to your body???
I took as much sick leave as I could this week and burrowed myself under the covers. It is amazing how much sleep your body demands when you are sick. Glorious 12+ hours of drooly sleep. I highly recommend it.
If you are feeling sick or feeling mentally/emotionally unwell, use your sick leave! In the western world, we are programmed to think sick leave is for big emergencies like horrible contagious flus, surgeries, broken bones, etc. We could instead shift our ideas around it and use our sick leave for preventative care, like before you get horrible sinus infections. 😅 Be like the happy new green leafy!
