Recognizing the importance of self-care isn’t just about taking time off; it’s about cultivating habits and practices that nourish our mind, body, and soul. Whether you engage in a hobby, exercising or practicing mindfulness, these ultimately equip us to give our best to those we care about.
This small but significant shift in my routine was the most delightful way to begin my day, and that feeling stayed with me. It stayed with me as I continued to bring it back to my focus. The power of the pause, the importance of honoring yourself amid whatever else may be going on in your life, is worth so much. Granted, we cannot always take the time as I did this morning, but at some point in our days, finding that time is important, and keeping that energy with you – vital.
Lying fallow is a way to renew ourselves, our thoughts, and our spirits. Usually when we are stressed and overwhelmed the last thing we think about is taking time out. We rush from one thing to another with no space in between. The best time to take a fallow moment is when you think you don’t have time to.
