In our lives we can find ourselves pushing beyond our limits, becoming a trailblazer. Always mastering the raging river that is our journey to surpass our capabilities.
There comes a time, if we do not ground ourselves, we can burn the candle at both ends. While the raging river is still going on in our lives, we are ending up sinking faster than the Titanic.
We need to be cautious on how we take care of ourselves. As our adrenaline is at its highest we do not realize, while we are under the thrill, sooner or later our body is going to crash. The adrenals are designed to be used for a short period of time.
In most cases we are burning the midnight oil by keeping them high. This is affecting the rest of our body. We need to find the balance to restore our body but also spirit and mind.
Working under a higher level of stress takes its toll on us. We need to find a way, each day, to ground ourselves. As the weather becomes nicer, we can take the time to reconnect with nature. Yoga and meditation are a great way to center ourselves.
Find an activity that will help you to cope with the daily stress of your life. It is not easy but make a priority to spend an hour on ourselves.
Slow down, keep your mind in the present. Step away from your electronics (smartphone, computers, etc.)
Spending some time alone can help you to reconnect with your spirit. We are pushing our bodies and minds to the limit every single day. It is time to start to take care of ourselves.
Become the ambassador of your body, mind and soul. Ground yourself to be present for you but also for your family. If you are burned out how can you be present for anyone in your life?
Take the time for yourself each day. Learn to let go of situations you do not have control over, focus on what you can change. Remember your body is your temple. You need to take care of it.
