Self-Care

Hello, everyone. I wanted to make sure I connected today. I have been busy and sick. Started getting sick a little over a week ago. I had to rest this past week. I had no energy to do anything. Thought about coming down on myself and accepted that sometimes you just need rest. Being sick isn’t always just about being too busy, it’s your body telling you your balance is off. That information is a good thing. There are times when it is okay to get rest. We need that, to be rejuvenated, to refuel, and to adjust our perspectives.

I am sharing this with you because we all need to be encouraged when it is time to get rest. Our culture today is about going until we can’t go anymore. I think it’s called grinding. (Okay, I’m aging myself.) I believe that this mindset influences the perspective to do whatever is necessary to keep moving. We need to understand the full spectrum of productivity includes rest. Rest is necessary for excellence.

That said, I am glad I got the rest I needed. A couple of those days, I just needed the extra sleep. I am not sure we truly appreciate the value sleep is to our whole and healthy, well-being. Just wanted to connect and let you know that I am doing so much better; re-connecting to my posting schedule. I am grateful for that.

Be blessed and that care of yourselves.
