I had full intentions of posting today but I woke up in the middle of the night with a horrible migraine-like headache and between that, the night sweats, vomiting and the terrible night’s sleep, I seriously just can’t.
So for the first time in ages, I’m actually taking a full day off — from work and from life. Normally, I push myself to work even when I’m sick (due to guilt and fear of getting behind), but not this time. I’ve rescheduled my meetings, put up an out of office and plan to rest all day. The older I get, the more I recognize it’s important to listen to these cues from our bodies.
Sometimes my friends, rest if best.
Tell me: Do you ever push yourself to work even when you’re sick?
