A refreshing approach
There are times when I feel like I’m moving through my days in slow motion. I try a quick fix like another cup of coffee but that doesn’t seem to help for very long. I end up right back where I was, creeping along, while I watch the world passing me by.
That’s when I know it’s time to work on a revitalization plan. Step one is to get more rest. Not just catching a power nap, but good, quality, rest with enough hours of sleep every night.
The next step is that I need to find time to relax more during my waking hours, without stressing.
Then, step three is to make sure that I’m finding time to do something for fun. Often when we are feeling bogged down, it’s because we have been pushing ourselves on auto-pilot for an extended period of time. Personal fun time usually is not a priority.
Step four is to remind myself of my value and worth each and every day and, some days, many times a day.
Lastly I need to see how my relationships are holding up. Am I having genuine interaction with my loved ones or just engaging in small talk and band-aid interactions?
We are coming up on a new season. Why not approach it with a revitalization plan? What do you have to lose?
