Take Time for YOU!
"In order to keep the lamp burning,
you have to keep putting oil in it.”
Wholeness or "health" is our natural state of being. But many of us spend our lives burning the candle at both ends. We allow ourselves to get worn out and run down, and then we wonder WHY nothing is working with ease. We give, give, give without refilling our tank and then wonder why we struggle with burnout. Just like our cell phones and other devices, we need to pause and recharge to ensure that we maintain a healthy balance for personal well-being and harmony.
My regular clients and students find that our sessions are more than a frivolous indulgence. Our practice calms the body and helps relax the mind which in turn helps to reduce stress, recharge energy stores and return us to harmony and balance.
There are many ways to recharge your battery, to refill your lamp. Take time for you. Take time to relax, to enjoy life, to interact with your community. Take time to take care of yourself with regular self care. Take time to get outside, to get some exercise and to be out in nature.
If you don't take the time to take care of yourself, how can you take care of anyone else? This is always the question I ask myself. I know that when we are working with a "full charge", we receive what we need from the universe with ease and we can achieve our own true potential.
"Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day
is the rest we take between two deep breaths."
