It May Not Be Procrastination

Hey wonderful you. Happy Sunday. Hope you’re well and feeling great!!!

This past week was a week of ‘procrastinating’ for me, or at least that’s how I saw it until now. 

I actually had been feeling kind of out of it for a couple of weeks, but this past week I couldn’t get myself to do anything, I had no energy.  No matter how much I tried to force myself, I just couldn’t get off the couch. And suddenly it was Friday, it seemed like the week went by in a flash.  At first I was upset, and I felt anxious, because a whole week went by and I did nothing of what I had planned. There’s the course I signed up for, writing, going out for a walk…and when I don’t do anything, I feel like I’m letting myself down.

Going without giving yourself time to rest is like trying to drive your car on empty.

And now looking at it from a fresh perspective I realize that, what I thought of as procrastination was actually my body telling me I need to rest. 

Sometimes you just need to give yourself a moment of rest, a break from it all, let go and just do nothing and since I wasn’t paying attention to what I needed, it showed up disguised as procrastination. But, the reality is that, it was my body and mind telling me I need to stop, hit pause for a bit in order to refresh, recharge, renew, and reenergize.

Self-care is part of my healthy lifestyle and listening to my body is a must in order to maintain my wellbeing.  So, sometime I’m a little slow in learning LOL, but, I’m listening to my body now and following its guidance for rest. This week I’m paying attention to my needs, I’m hitting pause without feeling guilty, anxious, or thinking that I’m missing out.  I’m hitting pause knowing that this is what I need right now and the best thing I can do for myself is to honor my inner needs.

When your body, mind and spirit is exhausted, rest is exactly the nourishment you need to refresh, recharge, renew, and reenergize yourself.

So I’m sharing this gentle reminder for, hit the pause button and honor yourself with the gift of rest, when you need it.

    1. We get so impatient, when I had knee surgery about 3 years ago, it was a very slow recovery and I had to constantly remind myself that it’s ok, I am healing every day, I just need to give myself time and rest.
      Thank you so much for your lovely comment, wishing you love and light for a full recovery. xoxo
