Happy Tuesday my lovely.
Although currently, I am trying my best to ignore the pain/pressure being placed on my left cheek/jawbone from a growing wisdom tooth. And it's actually making me quite irritable,a bid lucid and quite relaxed "from the medication of course". Do you ever feel this way?
Do you ever feel that you have so much to do and so little time. And that highly wished moment of rest you so desire during the daytime just can't seem to arrive. Yes? I feel you.
It all feels like so much. And where's the time. Ohh soo gone..
I was just watching a YouTube video by Anita Wing Lee, about her taking a break from it all and all I could think of through it all was a vacation from everything sounds so enticing right now. 3 months away from technology, maybe this is what I need..
We spend more than we should of our lives trying to get everything jam packed into our days. Into our nights, into our early mornings, we neglect the immediate effects it has on our body and our minds. Fatigue, emotional hunger, physical pain.. you name it. And right now I feel like the biggest culprit.
"Physically, my body is in rest mode, but mentally, it's a chaos up there". Ever felt that way?
So what do you do? Ask yourself,
Are my daily habits serving me right now? "and if it's not"
What can I do about it?
I had my second coaching call of a 10 week program scheduled in with my own coach today and I just couldn't show up. Mental exhaustion just wouldn't let me. AND it's OK to take a break.
p.s any of these are F.U.N & Relaxing
feed some birds
go to the beach
spend time meditating
relaxing with a great thriller book
playing with your kids/nieces
laughing uncontrollably at silly jokes
having a nice lunch at a fancy restaurant
having a nice lunch at home on a beautifully set by you table
learning to cook using an actual cookbook
simply doing nothing
You know..doing the fun self pleasurable things....
It's ok to realise when your self care is on the back burner "p.s. I wrote an entire post about this recently".
We're human... MAN. Not machine. But MAN.
Which means - we have the right to breath, eat, sleep, and all the other necessitates, if we choose to do so. Guess what, the other things, they can wait.
The action steps
The hustle and grinding
They can all wait. So ask yourself...are you tired of doing it all? If so, why haven't you stopped??
Even for a minute?
Until next time. xx Menellia
