I Advise You To Just Stay In Bed

BlutoDear Modern Philosopher,

I am emailing this letter from bed.  It’s a dark, rainy Sunday morning, my stomach is making weird gurgling noises, and I’m really not in the mood to deal with anyone.

It was a long, grueling week at work, and by this time tomorrow, I’ll be back in the office dealing with it all over again.  The mere thought of that makes me want to hide under the covers and simply pretend the rest of world doesn’t exist.

This is very unusual for me.  I am always on the run, and this lack of desire to get out of bed to face the day has me worried.  Do you think there’s something wrong with me?  Am I depressed?  Do I need to see a doctor?

If you could just point me in the right direction, Oh Wise One Of The Toga, I would greatly appreciate it.

Just Not Feeling It

in bedDear Just Not,

There is no need for a doctor, as this is a problem a Modern Philosopher can handle, free of charge.

I advise you to just stay in bed.  Check out the lady in the photot.  Doesn’t it look like she is having a wonderful Sunday?

There’s nothing wrong with spending a Sunday in bed.  It didn’t earn the nickname “Day of Rest” for nothing, my friend.  A Lazy Sunday is exactly what you need.

Is there any reason to get out of bed?  You can read and write without your head ever leaving the pillow.  If you feel like watching a movie or the game, you could do that on your laptop or phone if you don’t already have a TV in your bedroom.  Clearly, you are able to access your favorite blog, so what more do you really need?

I can assure you, the world will still be there tomorrow.  It’s okay to go AWOL every once in a while so you can recharge your battery, and allow your Deepest Thought to be “How long of a nap should I take?”.  There’s nothing wrong with just wanting to take a day for yourself, and Sundays are perfect for a little selfish behavior.

As for that gurgling noise in your tummy, just drink some milk or warm ginger ale.  That always works for me.

Enjoy your day of rest.  Something tells me you deserve it!

  2. When life feels this lackluster, I agree. Taking it easy in bed all day is a great idea. 🙂
