For the Love Of Mangoes

I’ve always been a very hard worker and I always have had at least one job. I don’t quit one job until I have another lined up and I don’t take time off in-between. I’ve never taken a “stay-cation” and when I do get back from vacation at 11 pm on Sunday, I generally don’t take Monday off. I’m now 26 years old and just realized that’s actually not something to be proud of. Driving yourself into the ground is surprisingly uncool. I’ve been prescribed a week off by my doctor, so I just woke up from a 2-hour long nap after making this delicious hummus. It’s very counterintuitive for me to relax. I’ve crossed out the strict financial goals that I’ve had posted on my whiteboard for the last year. I think I still don’t fully understand the point of relaxing but I have 5 more days to figure it out. In the meantime, I’m on day 10 of my fifth Whole30 and it’s going so well! I won’t promise any crazy recipes all week because I’m essposed to chill. How do you guys relax?
