One of those weeks!

I’ve experience on of those weeks.  You know…stressful, little sleep, grabbing food on the run (and not the healthy kind)…you know…just seriously crappy.

An increased work volume and family emergency (all fine now) created a vortex of hell. Everything went boom! I’m now completely wrecked, so I thought I’d use this post to elicit your advice on the best recovery strategies for such a week.

So far I have:
  • Walked to the Byron Bay Lighthouse with one of my besties on a beautiful sunny morning
  • Booked a massage for next weekend
  • Thought about (but not yet booked) a lovely holiday
  • Eaten a yummy dessert (when I wouldn’t normally)
  • Dumped some of my domestic responsibilities onto the rest of the family (really liked doing this one and wonder just how long I can keep this in place)
This article from Huffington Post had a few good suggestions.

I would like some of your ideas.  What do you do when you’ve had one of those weeks? What helps you get back on track? I’d love to hear.


  1. Hugs on your tough week, Jen! Sounds as though you're doing all the right things to help get over it though -- gentle exercise, passing off chores, and dessert always work for me. :-) So too do scented soaks in a bath, and a good book. Hope you're feeling rested and on top of things again soon.

    1. Thanks Michelle. Hmmmm, a good book, now there's an idea!

  2. Fingers crossed things keep getting better and yes you have some fabulous ideas there, I would add urn off to everything and read a good book.

    Have Fun

    1. Great plan, Amy! Planning on collapsing on the couch with Netflix this weekend!

  4. I find a margarita while relaxing in my no too hot tub outside (am in Florida, the last few days have been warmer) I turn off all the lights that shine out the back of the house, turn on the Ipod to some smooth jazz on low, and sip the margarita and watch the airplanes fly in and out of the Orlando airport. Best $600 bucks I ever spent for a portable (inflatable) hot tub. No one else allowed!! (unless one of you want to join me..no hubbies or kids)

    1. Gosh, count me in for that, Laure! :-D

    2. I saw one (inflatable hot tub) advertised on TV the other night. I want one! How awesome.

  5. When I find everything is getting too much for me I will organise a day out with my mum, just the two of us.
