Here’s a question: what do you usually do when you have off days? You know, those days when you feel slightly out of sorts, things don’t really flow and you’re not sure what to do. What do you tend to do on one of those days?
I am having an off day today and I’m loving it!
Did I get your attention? Yes, I am absolutely loving it! You know why? Because I do not think of this as an off day at all; I think of it as a little down time before the next adventure, the next idea, the next creative day. So instead of feeling bad, unproductive, sad, worried and stressed I relax into the feeling of it and do small task that are easy to complete, do not require a lot of energy and that I never really want to do on a busy, upbeat and exciting day.
Today I have been tying up loose ends: clearing some paper work, tidying up some client accounts, planning some payments for various things, clearing a desk drawer, making a few phone calls.
So today is a calm, stress free and very productive day that offers me the gift of getting organized and ready for what tomorrow will bring.
This is a better day to perceive an off day, don’t you think? Because it is not off at all, it is an absolutely perfect day!
