Sometimes the most powerful thing to do is to take a break. Self care goes a LONG ways.
Yesterday I woke up WORN OUT!
Showing up here on the blog consistently this month for this Journey Back to Power challenge is important to me. Honestly, though, I was feeling uninspired, emotional, and like rest was in order.
So I made an executive decision to take the day off and do what I needed to do to get my energy back into alignment. Especially with my kids coming home today, I knew I really needed to be at the top of my game.
It can seem counterintuitive, but taking a break when our body and energy is calling for it can really help us to keep moving forward in the most powerful way.
There have been plenty of times that I’ve tried to push through a feeling of exhaustion and keep working… and you know what happened? I simply got more exhausted. My work got less inspired. I felt less connected. Nothing changed – my energy continued to go downhill.
Listening to our day by day and moment to moment needs is important.
The more we listen to ourselves and what our body is calling for, the more we can maintain a steadier energy overall by replenishing when needed.
So yesterday, rather than posting on the blog, I slipped away to a local hot springs. I soaked up some sunshine, I relaxed in the warm mineral water, I absorbed the beauty of the garden, and I had some nourishing conversations.
Guess what? Today I’m feeling energized and ready to charge into my week.
Comment and tell me…
What do you do to re-align your energy? How do you give yourself some self care in order to get back to feeling inspired and uplifted?
