It is no secret that you work long hours, sacrifice yourself, getting little sleep, and sometimes not eating or eating on the run.When there is such demand on your time, you must take care of yourself, set some boundaries to protect your health. Try taking 5 minute mini breaks through the day, make sure you get breakfast, lunch and dinner so that you can better do what you do best “take care of others”.
Ponder the thought of you in a relaxing atmosphere, a quiet place, beautiful music, if you like the woods, imagine you walking through a vast exuberant forest. You are breathing pure air and have noticed the beautiful sent of pine trees, soon you come to a small shallow creek and deciding to sit on a rock near the stream of clear water you take a deep cleansing breath. As you sit you are aware of the birds flying around and some birds playing near the water. As you look behind you, you are able to get a glimpse of a squirrel with reddish-brown fur and bushy tail enjoying an acorn, the squirrel sees you and quickly runs up the oak tree. You wish you had a camera to capture the view in pictures, however you did not bring your camera and you are now resigned to the idea of using your mind and your heart to keep the magnificent view in your memory bank. How refreshing it is to take time alone, so you can pull yourself together, treat yourself you are worth it!
You can ponder and imagine a quiet time, what is more you should turn it into a reality by planning a mini-vacation to your favorite place, revitalize yourself for you, and by default for others.
