Make time for yourself.
No, really...do it. It's so incredibly important to your health and well-being. I thrive off of structure and plans and to-do lists and that feeling of accomplishment when I can cross things off once they're completed. Anyone else out there have to make their to-do lists on pen & paper? Isn't it so much more gratifying to check things off that way? #NerdAlert
When I began my "funemployment" journey back in June of this year, I was instantly bored the first day; too much time on my hands and not enough to do.
So, I made time for myself.
- I stayed committed to 6AM yoga classes every day at my amazing local studio Full Lotus Yoga and watched my practice grow deeper.
- I focused on my half-marathon training and even though I suffered an injury, I watched my body heal itself and grow stronger.
- I established a dedicated meditation practice and watched my mind become calm, my heart become softer and found the ability to seek gratitude and humility in the smallest of things.
These words aren't meant to brag or be boastful...I've just been really aware lately of how tired, stressed and disconnected we all are, and that's no way to live. So, this is just your friendly reminder to make time for yourself today, even if it's only five minutes.
You know how to take care of yourself the best and when you do, you'll be amazed by what your body does for you in return.
