Enjoy rest this season. We work hard all year. Some choose to end the year strong and work even harder. We can also choose to rest and restore ourselves. The pace and energy of the holiday season was still high despite the current climate of life. Take some time to healthfully enjoy this time and recharge.
I often get asked how I do it all. The answer is, I don’t. I do my best to live with simplicity. I focus on staying centered to avoid burnout. My home is relatively minimalist, plus toys. I follow a simple system to enrich my finances holistically. I (am doing better with) rest when I need rest. No over doing it. It does not benefit anyone. My kids don’t need all the things all the time. Remove that pressure from yourself, and guide them in that direction as well. How can you simplify life?
I hit the trail to hike when I can, or even practice flow yoga for fitness. How can you get moving and increase your energy and positivity? Can you find an activity outdoors that also boosts your Vitamin D levels (much needed these days!)?
Let me know how you’re restoring yourself on social. Give yourself grace. More is not more. Identify your priorities and joys, and stick to them. Let the rest fall away. Enjoy the season. Enjoy simplicity.
