I haven’t been feeling well these last few days. I’ve been feeling run down, tired, and just plain under the weather. Anyone else? 🙋🏽♀️
Old Elizabeth would have just pushed herself to work, forced herself to exercise, and dragged herself to social obligations. What I used to think was me being “productive,” was really me just overriding the signals from my body that were screaming “IT’S TIME TO REST”…so I’d wind up getting super sick because my body desperately needed a rest. 😭🤦🏽♀️
Nowadays, as soon as I feel like I’m coming down with something, I give myself permission to rest. It’s still hard for me because it feels like I’m falling behind when I’m not running a mile a minute but I remind myself that a few days of rest is the most “productive” thing I can do for myself in the long run. 🧘🏽♀️
So I went to bed at 9:30pm last night…and woke up at 10am! Guess I was in desperate need of some rest.💯
Ask Yourself: What are my beliefs around “being productive”? How easy is it for me to give myself permission to rest? 🌿💜✨
