Yesterday I took some time to relax all day. It was nice to wear my pajamas and read articles all day long from my sofa. Some of us don’t know how tired we are until we try to relax. Then we realize we’re exhausted.
We may have lived with exhaustion and stress so long it’s become habitual. That doesn’t mean we’re bad or wrong, or even off track. Many of us are deeply involved in activities, work, projects, and relationships we enjoy. We like our lives and the things we’re doing. But sometimes we’ve pushed too hard or too long. Sometimes we haven’t given our bodies’ adequate time to relax, to rest, to really let go.
It’s all right to take time out. Relax. Refresh. Regroup. It’s alright to rest even if we’re busy, rest often enough to keep ourselves replenished. Get in touch with your body, and then stay in touch with yourself.
Find out how tired you are. Then let your body tell you what it needs to come back to live and love.
