Get a Massage
No, I’m not kidding. It took me two weeks straight to pull every final detail together so that I could get my book ready for publication (final proof, formatting for ebook and then reviewing them both) and I was wrecked at the end. Not to mention starting the process to make my ebook available on other venues and begin the process for audiobook. But that’s a different story.
Get a massage. Today I took my own advice and splurged on an aromatherapy massage with reflexology. Ninety minutes of bliss. I had no idea how tense and stressed my muscles were but now I know how my cat feels after I’m done massaging him.
Okay, it doesn’t have to be a massage. But you finished a gigantic project, a unique piece of work that no one else has done. Reward yourself with something meaningful, something that lifts your spirits after a job well done.
Massages are the BEST! We writers often don’t even realize that we carry so much tension in our necks from typing. My massage therapist can always tell when I’ve had a busy writing month. 🙂
I definitely see the important of getting one more often than once a year. 😀
