Some days we just don't have the energy.
It's hard to get out of bed, get showered, dressed, eat or do just about anything.
Sometimes we can push ourselves past this. Othertimes it may be a message to slow down. Maybe we need to sleep, rest, grieve, cry, be angry, nurture, heal.
We don't need an excuse or reasons why. However, not paying attention can lead to serious burnout.
The people who truly love us, understand and respect our need to take care of ourselves. They will even help, if we ask.
When we listen to the natural rhythms of our body, not only do we become more in-tune with ourselves, but all of life. We are a better person, partner, parent, co-worker and friend. We're more effecient and effective with everything we do.
Viewing "down days" as an opportunity, a crucial part of being our best self, helps us stay well and teaches others the importance of self-care.
There's great work to do. #Rest. #Recharge. Be well and be #Ready.
