I like to keep busy while I’m resting. Yes, I know that sounds like a contradiction in terms, but here me out: I have been crazy busy lately, and I know that I need to rest so I can continue to do all the things I need to do, but resting can be so boring! One of my favorite “resting but keeping busy” things to do is craft. Pinterest has changed the craft game, and I couldn’t be happier! Like I said, I have a hard time resting and often get bored or restless, but I am also more than happy to sit and chill and try to make that cool thing I saw on Pinterest- which is easier on my body than other things so I call it a win.
It’s not always easy to slow down, but finding slow-ish things to do has helped a lot when I need to conserve energy but don’t want to be bored out of my mind. Today I’m resting/making paper flowers and watching Netflix because I have an engagement tonight and another one tomorrow and I’m saving my spoons but still having a great time, and I get a lot of satisfaction when I see the finished product which is just another win.
What are are some of your favorite things to do when you need to save spoons? Let us know in the comments below!
