I wonder, have you ever thought about creating a list of options for what to do to take care of yourself when you need a rest?
So often we are focused on lists of doing. Grocery stores, taxes, etc. Rest is a very important part of our lives and I believe, we need to give it more respect.
Start by thinking of what rest means to you. Is it a cup of coffee on the deck? A nap at noon? A massage?
List five things that come to you when you think of resting.
Then think of what decadent resting means for you.
Maybe it's a massage on a Tuesday afternoon (playing a bit of hooky). Or a piece of chocolate with that coffee? Or maybe it's spending a day outdoors doing nothing but looking at everything around you.
List five decadent resting options.
Now lets go deeper, list five decadent options you would NEVER ;-) do. Those things you fantasize about and then stop yourself. Maybe it's getting a new expresso machine, or a new convertible, or coloring your hair... something extravagant.
Sometimes, we just need to open a window and let the universe do the magic.
Let's see what these lists motivate you toward! Let me know how it goes!
