How To Rest Through The Grind
Rest is a special time where the body winds down and because of this you feel the world stop for a moment. In a fast paced society, we have to remind ourselves more and more to slow down. The pattern starts here. Iâ€™m feeling confident and on top of the world because Iâ€™m killing it at my to-do list. Iâ€™m well rested because Iâ€™ve had good balance for quite some time. Throw anything at me and Iâ€™ll take it and then some. This is a dangerous state of euphoria because this is when I overcommit myself to events, dates, and obligations that I canâ€™t keep. They sounded exciting in the moment, but I didnâ€™t put enough thought into my decision because I was riding my wave of good vibes and forgot to check-in during the low tides. My goal is to design a life with balanced creativity, action, and rest. We are complex, multi-dimensional individuals with many passions. To avoid the aftermath of an emotional hurricane, I remind myself to stop thinking about the next thing ahead, and live life right now with the following exercises.
