Do you “hermit” away from the world when you are run down and tired?
If you don’t take care of yourself, you disconnect from friends and family because you don’t have the energy to nurture those important relationships.
Some folks recharge by spending time with friends, others need solitary time to regroup. So, for some people retreating like a hermit is therapeutic!
How do you recharge?
If you are a care giver, odds are that self care if not your top priority!
You likely drag yourself from one task to the next.
The problem is, IF not taking care of yourself is a habit, then the symptoms of feeling run down and all around lousy start to feel normal.
Everything is relative right?
When you are at the end of your rope, anxiety, fear and restlessness keep you from slowing down enough to refuel.
Ignoring self care will make you sick!
Do you FEEL:
- foggy (hard to focus)
- addicted to caffeine
- fearful and anxious
- restless despite your fatigue
Seriously …. take a hard look at it.
Do you feel cranky by the end of the day?
Do you have a tough time sleeping?
It’s not just a normal part of the aging process and it is NOT something you have to live with!
How do you heal anxiety, fear and restlessness?
7 Simple steps taken consistently will go a long way to remedy what’s ailing you.
Step 1 Witness your feelings!
Journal your feelings. Physical and emotional feelings are the sign posts to living better and feeling better.
If you are numb and in denial, you are stuck.
How am I feeling in my body, mind and soul?
Step 2 Release!
What you resist persists, allow whatever you see.
Accept your feelings.
Step 3 Notice.
Are there patterns in your life that repeat themselves in all the various aspects of work and personal relationships?
Is your focus on you or someone else?
You can only fix you. Make sure you stay out of other people’s feelings. You can support them, but you have no business fixing anybody but you.
What might your feelings be trying to tell you?
Don’t over analyze.
Maybe your feelings stem from being tired and depleted.
Step 4 Respond.
Choose to respond to your feelings instead of react to the external forces that you feel throughout your day.
Nutrition can really play a part here, as can rest and relaxation.
If you are stretched beyond your coping limits, you do not have access to a controlled response.
Take a breath and make some space for stillness.
You will find your inner guidance and Peace.
Your response will be much better when you come from your heart.
Step 5 Evaluate
You can’t build on your progress until you acknowledge it.
Record your progress if possible, so that you can literally measure your growth.
Step 6 Love Yourself
All love starts with self love.
If you can’t love yourself, you can’t give or receive love from anyone else.
Step 7 Nurture Yourself
Nurturing is love in action!
