Because sometimes a girl just changes her mind…
Wake up. Check work phone. Reply to a few emails. Check personal phone. Go on Twitter. Realise it’s 4.29am. Tweet that I can’t sleep. Mentally run through schedule for the busy day ahead. Go back to sleep. Wake up again. See urgent email. Try to go back to sleep. Give up and go for a run around Regent’s Park. Coffee. More emails. It’s not even 9am and this is my routine… or at least it was.
I took a few weeks off to go on holiday with a friend. I locked my work phone in the hotel safe, only switching it a handful of times throughout the trip. I distanced myself from schedules, urgent invoices and more. I relaxed and enjoyed myself – loving a bit of clichéd ‘me time’. I relished my 3pm frozen strawberry daiquiri on the beach, listening to chill out music while reading Glamour magazine.
