I love a good turn of phrase and a friend came out with this one last week, slightly regretfully, in that he felt he hadn’t done enough during lockdown.
‘Thats brilliant! Conscious slobbing, I love it! That is enough. Thats more than enough, that’s extreme self care!’ I replied.
One of the meanings of slob, is to behave in a lazy way. So many of us have such strong drivers – the high achiever, the workaholic, the should, the ought to and simply the demands of life that behaving in a lazy way can feel really uncomfortable.
So I thought I would just share his phrase ‘conscious slobbing’ as it makes me smile and any fun way to give ourselves permission to rest is an idea worth sharing!
Conscious slobbing or as predictive text keeps trying to change the word to – blobbing!
Blob, slob, hang out, ease up, chill, let go a bit! It does us all the world of good!
