Have you learned how to relax while having continuous deadlines, informative books to read, children’s demands, partners demands, IT demands?
As I write I realise the demands on our precious time is endless.
How do we take timeout to relax during the day with all these demands? Today I observed my cat, Boots. He doesn’t care if I’m busy, he knows he will get fed and stroked when he wants and he does go to work occasionally, walking around the section on paw patrol to keep my house mouse free.
What can we learn from our animals? Quit being busy, quit worrying, relax, enjoy the moment, be mindful, have time off from mobile phones, computers, webinars, children and quite honestly put yourself and your needs first, just for a change.
I am a work in progress, having a mindset instilled in me as a child to rest when the work is done. What a crazy belief to take on board…now it is time to unlearn it and relearn to go with the flow and really acknowledge that both our time and ourselves are precious.
