There is not a lot known about Pasithea. She was one of the Charities and, like the rest of them, she hung out with Aphrodite. She was also married to Hypnos, the god of sleep. That may not be a lot of information, but it's actually tells you all you need to know: Relaxation comes from friends, love, and a good night's sleep.
If you want to plan and enjoy your downtime, therefore, it is very simple: You need to plan time for friends, love and sleep--and don't skimp on the sleep. We are a sleep-deprived nation. We've been sold a bill of goods that tells us that happiness comes from Red Bull moments and robot-like productivity. All lies! Be counter cultural: clear your calendar and go to bed early.
Channel this goddess: When feeling rushed, when overwhelmed with things to do, when you don't even remember what downtime looks like, when you just need to treat your own beloved body better.
Need a goddess: I got goddesses! Post a comment explaining what you need or want a goddess for. Then check back in a couple weeks and see what you got! It's fun! It's free! But, really, it's not worth losing sleep over.
