It’s been two weeks. I’m not counting, so this is an estimate. But, I can say that I’m currently dealing with two-ish weeks of the twitch, as I’m calling it. My left eye has now determined he will have a life of his own and won’t stop twitching off and on.
I’ve tried it all.
Drink more water.
Rub all the lavender essential oil.
Meditate (only on day 3 of this, so it could help).
Beach it up.
But at the end, the twitch is still there. I’m going all mad hatter with it, too. Maybe it’s me? I think I’ve decided what I need, though: a fucking vacation.
I don’t think I realized my stress level until the other day. And now that I recognize it, I feel it. It’s at the top of my throat, crawling under my skin. It makes my chest tight, while at the same time forcing my eyes to well up. I wish I could pinpoint where it’s coming from, though.
Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t thought I was stressed lately. And I don’t want to really give into it. But maybe a good old dose of just letting it be, will be what I need. Recognize it, and move on. Breathe in…and out.
Maybe it’s tied to the fact I haven’t had real relaxing vacation this year. I have taken off 4 days total. I have done the music festival (which, while hella fun, was exhausting) and I visited my girl Laur. But it’s not enough. We’re in August for goodness sake. This time time last year, I had accomplished so much. Alas.
So, my dear friends, I ask for your thoughts. Not only do I want your rec’s for vacation ideas, tell me your favorite ways to de-stress. On this fine Friday (thank god we’re finally here), I’m all about the positivity and good vibes for a fun weekend.
Chat with you all next week! And thanks in advance for your help!
