“You know it is okay to do nothing at times, don’t you? Some people feel as if they must always be doing. They always must effort and work on themselves. This is not ideal. Don’t over do it doesn’t help anything.
Ocean waves come in and go out. Night becomes day. Winter becomes spring. Hot drinks and food cool down. This becomes that. There are cycles. There is a time to plant and a time to reap. In between there is a time to wait.
Settle for a little bit. Take a short break. Relax, let your unconscious process all your learning. Relax and assimilate the positive changes you are making. Just as your unconscious mind takes time to digest the food you eat it takes time to processes your learning. Let it.
It is important to relax. Day gives way to night. Cold becomes hot. There is ebb and flow. You do not want to be pushing all the time. It is important to take time for yourself. Smell the roses. Hang out with friends. Do nothing. Be a couch potato for the day. Allow, accept.
Be easy, kind and gentle on yourself. Let go. Unwind. Refresh and recharge. Take a peaceful walk. Enjoy a delightful savory slow meal. Meditate or take a nap. Sit in nature. Languish at the beach near a large body of water. Lounge in a hammock. Read a book that relaxes.
Listen to soothing music. Enjoy a sunrise or a sunset. Walk barefoot, sit on grass or lie back. Connect with nature. Watch the clouds flow by. Listen to the rain. Tune in to silence. Paint, work with clay. Do some yoga or have some body work done. Make some me time.
Refresh And Enjoy
A good massage would be wonderful. A sauna is awesome. Drink lots of water. Hydrate. Move gracefully, skip, hop or dance. Whatever you do let go, relax. Make replenishing yourself delightful and easy. Sit by a stream or river and watch the ripples go by. Do nothing.
Yes, it could be a weekend. You also want to learn to make magical moments during the week. After work, before work, even while at work when you are easily able to. Let everything flow and be one with it all. This is a good thing to do for yourself.” Rex Sikes
