If there’s one thing I should never do again, it is delaying to change the bedsheets.
Last night my skin got rashes and it was itchy. I tried not to scratch because I don’t want to make it worse but I couldn’t help it. I scratched my skin and thought that after that I could just sleep. But no. It didn’t work.
So what I did, I tried some of the breathing techniques that I’ve learned from my yoga class and my mindfulness books. It worked for 15 minutes. Then my skin started itching again so I was awake again but really exhausted. I’ve been trying to remember if I ate something that I’m allergic to but no I haven’t ate anything that would irritate my skin.
Then it came to me that my bf and I were supposed to change the bedsheet last weekend. That bedsheet has been there for a month (or maybe two) already. We haven’t forgotten it but since we’re both preoccupied by our games, trips and other stuff we were just postponing it.
So I’ve learned our lesson. Don’t procrastinate because it will only lead to another procrastination (I actually have plans today but because I didn’t get enough sleep last night, I got sick today and have to stay at home.) and irritation.
