We are gearing up for the height of the season and the pace is picking up. Today, instead of doing the list of so many things needed to complete my preparation, I decided to take a break and refuel. I fought my mind for it was telling me there was no time to waste. However, my being called for a recharge so I decided I would listen to my sacred body so it would be beautiful and centered for the rest of the season.
Why? Because I deserve it and needed to relax. So caught up in things, it was time to stop the madness and care for me. I went to the Russian Spa which is the deepest form of oxytocin buzz I know. Not only that but it lasts for hours, even through the night. I know of no other treatment that has such a reset to the body for an extended period.
I feel calm and chilled. The list still large in what is to be done but I have no hurry or panic in my being. I feel beautiful, renewed, peaceful and geared up to step it up this weekend. I have energy to double time if need be because I took the self care break. It is the way to reset, renew and head into the next part of the rush with a centered, peaceful, loving feeling. How we are to be doing the holiday in reality.
So do something for yourself in the hardest moment of this preparation. The power, the calm, the reset will remind you of what and why you are doing all this. We need to take a rest and it seems we don't have time but that rest affords us more energy the next moment to continue on. Rather than run ragged through it all, you can rest and renew with fresh, bright energy available forward. We know this and have done this before. I am reminding you of the power of this slow down, honor yourself, rejuvenate strategy we all are aware of.
Often people say I wish I could but I can't. Well then you can't and you will run yourself to the ground and most likely end up sick for your body is quite pissed at the exhaustion. Try something different. They say a 5 minute meditation break gives you the power of an hour nap! Often that quick switch to the chill affords you way more in energy than running to empty.
I did it today and it worked wonders. I will do it again next week when my daughter comes in and make time once again to renew and refresh. They say it is most important to destress when you are in the highest stress. So I offer you the option to care for yourself amidst the rush. You will be grateful and will find your gratitude inward so you can express that outward thorough the season.
Just a good health tip to check out. You know you need it. Just saying......
