Most of the time I am an "up and at 'em" kind of gal. I go to work when I need to, I don't take sick days unless I'm on my death bed, I turn up when I say I will and I don't mind any of it. Then there is the occasional day when I reach the point where I've had enough and I'm tired of being little Mary Sunshine.
I'm now officially referring to the tired days as Pyjama/Pajama (depending on your nationality) Days - these are the days when I will sleep in, have a shower and then put my jammies back on and kick back and have a "me" day. I won't go out, I won't make any commitments to anyone and I will laze around reading books, blog posts and maybe a magazine if I have one. I might even watch a bit of daytime TV and mutter to myself about how there is nothing on that's worth watching!
In this busy world we live in I think it's good to admit that you're a little tired of it all sometimes and to stop, breathe, smell a rose or two (if you feel like leaving the comfort of the couch) and just have a little bit of head space freed up again. I'm not an advocate of doing this when you should be at work or some other commitment, but if you can hang out for your day off - then make it a true day off and chill out.
I have a picture in my head of an elegant woman lounging around in her lovely matching sleepwear/ leisurewear outfit (I have a Pinterest board that features how I think the elegant, lounging me would look like in my dreams). I'm a lot less elegant than that in real life and I don't co-ordinate at all - but that's part of Pyjama Day - not giving a hoot about appearance - just relaxing and not participating in the hustle and bustle of this busy world - taking a day to accept I'm tired.......and to get over it and move on tomorrow.
