Wednesday before last, I told y'all how I had been in a funk lately. I let a weeks worth of bad sleep and some medicine affect my mood and ultimately my days. Well Wednesday night, I went to bed early, and I told myself I wasn't going to let myself be affected like that. I needed to have control over my mood, nothing else.
In the last year, I must have forgotten that I'm a morning person. I always have been, and apparently that has yet to change. I know, I'm rare haha. For the month of December I'm on the dredded Tuesday-Saturday 9-6 shift that no one in the office likes. Even though I was getting up an hour later for work, I was still tired around the same time every night. Thursday morning I decided to wake up 45 minutes early. I took a long bath and listened to worship music (Kari Jobe station on Pandora), I washed and blow dried my hair, look a little extra time on my makeup, and overall, just got ready slowly and peacefully. Then I ate my breakfast and read God's word. It was just what I needed. I felt so refreshed to start my day.
I want to be able to start all my days like that. It may not be for everyone to wake up early, but for me, it obviously works! Sure, I may have to fight myself to get out of bed early in the morning, but if it's going to make me in a better mood in the long run, I'm all for it. This will also help me with being more intentional in seeking God. I will admit, I don't read the bible like I should. I'm going to make it a priority to wake up early to spend time for myself and for my God.
What do you do for yourself when you're feeling in a funk? Do you take time for some self care?
