This is the summary of a lesson I can’t seem to learn enough times in enough ways.
I get reminder after reminder from that great wise Universe that tends to serve up all kinds of truth and fast lessons—
Feed your creativity more. Play much more. See more sunlight. Stretch. Spend time with friends, even if it’s online. Create more change.
These are all space-clearing activities that are also self-care activities that go far beyond the incense burning and bubble baths. I love both, immensely, but they just scratch the surface when it comes to really taking care of yourself, as you’ve likely noticed if you’re feeling burned out and the usual pick-me-ups aren’t working.
If you’re feeling– uninspired, exhausted, distracted, listless, very upset, extremely stressed, resigned to defeat or otherwise swirling in negativity– it’s time to take care of yourself a whole lot more.
If you’re feeling even a tiny bit of any of these things– it can be your signal to take care of yourself more!
You’re meant to actually feel good a lot of the time, as much as possible. Suffering is not required to have success. Sacrifice for your goals and dreams should not equate to sacrificing your health, your mental wellbeing and your pleasure.
Had I truly believed all of the above much sooner than I did. It would have saved me a lot of time, a huge health crisis and I’m certain it would have brought me a lot more early success.
But, that doesn’t matter. What matters is that I truly believe that now and the effects are life-altering in the best ways.
–If I’m feeling terrible, my emotional wellbeing is a huge priority. It’s never failed to transform my work and life in all abundant ways.
–If I’m suffering in the name of success, I know I’m way out of whack within myself. I’m probably too sleepless, too deprived of fun, too rigid or on the wrong track in my actions. My friend once reminded me: “When things are way too hard and nothing at all is coming together, you’re not on the right path to your dreams.” This has always helped me steer myself in more of the best directions.
–If I’m run down and really busy, I know I’m not at all in my genius zone.
All of these are simple-to-recognize outward signs that I’m not taking care of myself.
All of this is more useful when you imagine how it operates in your own life:
What do you see and feel when you are way overdue to recharge your batteries?
Any of the above? Or maybe: Frustration? Clumsiness? Weird tech errors? Arguments? A sore neck? A rollercoaster of emotion?
What can you do to recharge yourself?
And: how can you stop yourself in your tracks when you first feel and see the signs that it’s time to take care of yourself ASAP?
Here’s the great news:
You can’t do to much of self-care. It’s literally ALWAYS amazing!
I hope you come up with a mile long list of crafts to make, things to learn, mediations to try, gardens to grow and fun to have in a million beautifying, glowing, lush, simple and powerful ways.
And, I hope you do everything on that list with exuberance and joy!
