Mindful Monday: Rest

 

 

Is it time to relax, rejuvenate, and REST?

 

Have you been making less than your best decisions lately?
Are you feeling short-tempered and easily frustrated?
Do you feel taken for granted and depressed?
Are you anxious and sleep-deprived?
Have you become accident prone?

 

These are often indications of over-commitment, fatigue, and lack of mindfulness.

 

If so, it’s time to REST! 

You can’t pour from an empty pitcher.
The mind, body, and spirit need down time to rejuvenate.

 

 

Here are a few tips to relax, restore, and REST! 

 

 

  1. Take a 15 minute power nap.                  
  2. Go for a walk in nature.                           
  3. Meditate for 5-20 minutes daily.          
  4. Have a cup of relaxing chamomile tea.   
  5. Take a relaxing bath.

  1. What if I do all those and still find myself making mistakes, feeling totally overwhelmed, sad and full of anxiety? Well, I don’t usually take naps but I do meditate in the morning, go for walks and yoga, drink tea, eat healthfully. Thank goodness I at least do that! It is the holiday blahs?

    1. Great question, Dawn! May be time to ask yourself if you are exhausted and need a break or if your energy is going toward something that you do not enjoy or find inspiring. It is often a bit of both. Consider making a list of what’s going well and what needs improvement and use that in your consideration of any possible changes such as reallocating your energy or adding a designated day off every week. Remember, as they say, you can’t give from an empty cup. <3
