I find it almost impossible to STOP; while others seem to take relaxation in their stride.
My mind is always racing with ideas, all the things that I convince myself, I must do. All this added pressure doesn’t help. I want to do so much but have so little time.
Im sure I am not on my own.
The only solution that I can come up with is allocating time to rest. Just time each week that you turn everything off and unplug from the world. Phone off. Laptop off. Take time just to be.
I visit certain people who live a relaxed lifestyle, just being in their presence I feel a calmness within my soul.
It is in this calmness that most of my ideas, wisdom and mental clarity happen, so why do I not spend more time there?
In these moments I see the world so beautifully, then I’m off on the road again.
In this busy world, we need to make conscious effort to slow down. If we don’t— the stress and pressure can build up to illness and pain; the body can only take so much.
Our bodies slowly break down.
I regularly have sore backs, sore throats but rather than Stop; I carry on. My body is giving me messages, but I refuse to listen.
Waking this morning, I didn’t feel good at all. This idea, STOP, shouted louder than anything else, so I decided to write it down. Maybe its time I stuck this up on the wall as a reminder that if I don’t slow down, I will STOP.
I’m beginning to realize that I need to take time for myself each week. I can’t reply to every message or email, and even when I do the tiredness distorts my judgment.
When you are at full strength, only then can you give others the energy that they deserve, and need.
thank you for reading and have a good day.
