I had just come back from over a month of traveling, and my body was trying to adjust to a 25 degree Celsius drop in the temperature outdoors on top of a 12 hour time change. I jumped straight into long meetings and hosting a big event. Then I just crashed.
My alarm clock went off and my body felt so achy I could barely reach my arm over to press the “snooze” button. Five minutes later the alarm was back and I tried to get up but my head felt like a bowling ball.

I should have just cleared my schedule.” Now in a bad mood with my body feeling more and more drained, I knew it was time to head home and relish in having a shitty day.
I put my PJs back on, made a pot of tea, and got cozy under a warm blanket with the fireplace going as I watched movies all day long and ordered various vegetarian soups from take-out restaurants.
