Coach Rose: De-stressing is sometimes so damn complicated!
It was that time again: time for a day sauna. Alone.
Away from everything and everyone. I do it once every six months.
For Valentine's I received a voucher from my love so I did not have to feel "guilty" about the costs (from my self-earned money, what are we sometimes complicated!)
I plan something like that a month in advance; relaxation must of course fit into the agenda.
Mama was ready!
I had a headache the night before.
"You get one every time, just before you go" my sweetheart said to me.
He was right...
The day started early: the child woke up at 6.15. And then of course the whole rigmarole; getting dressed, making sandwiches, combing hair ... And then myself: showering, removing all excess hair growth, packing.
Then the children go to school.
1, 2, 3 kisses. Okay, one last one.
A quick social chat with the mum of a friend.
Having a quick bite at home, emptying and filling the dishwasher and then ...
Ah crap where is that receipt?!
First I rifle through my wallet; 1000 cards, receipts and stamps later I remember that I received the receipt by e-mail.
Okay, I'll go through my mail while I start getting nervous.
I do not see it
After a number of searches in Outlook, my heart rate is high and I feel my hands sweating.
Where is that RECEIPT?!
I call customer service while I pick up some LEGO and water the plants.
"Our customer service is open on weekdays between 13.00 and 19.00," I hear a robotic voice say.
I decide just to go, surely they'll have a record of me there?
Oh thank God, they do!
And with a smile on my face and my bare bottom sweating in the sauna, I realise how stressful de-stressing can actually be.
