Think of driving down a road with potholes at 65 mph. You need to get to your destination! But your car is shaking, you're shaking, suddenly your ability to keep going has gone. We talked about this in our Online Care Circle recently: how easy it is to get caught up in the gotta go mode, and how poor the results can be.
In the mix of overwhelm that can happen in our lives, from the usual to-dos to the unexpected, are you taking time to stop? To B-R-E-A-T-H-E? Be honest with yourself. We all think we can handle a lot, and at times we have to. Try changing up the usual protocol you have done into an energetic shift. Energy is powerful stuff - what you put in you get back multiplied abundantly. Be aware of the negative you send out (or in) because it is likely to produce more.
A quick and easy technique can pull the edge right out of a negative situation and help you rebalance.
It is of the utmost importance that, especially given the times we are in, practicing kindness (this includes yourself) is important.
When we continue amid crisis without looking back, at some point, we'll slow down or become ill and realize things that we didn't do for ourselves.
