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.
