- Flat out? Furloughed?
- Lonely in a household? Crowded in a household?
- Frightened? Stressed? Peaceful? Even relaxed?
- Short of sleep? Plenty of sleep?
- Emotionally drained? Emotionally stable?
It feels that there are different worlds at the moment, not based on the country we live in but the demands on our skills and our time – and the wellbeing of ourselves and those we love.
We may not have any choice over the cards we are dealt, but we can learn to play them as skilfully as possible.
Learning how to pace ourselves in whatever situation we find ourselves is a vital skill.
Take a minute today, sitting or walking, to notice messages your body is giving you. Our physical make-up tells us so much, if only we will pause to hear.
Listen to these messages, with gentleness. Don’t judge yourself. Accept what you find.
Just by noticing – listening – you will be the wiser; you will be better equipped to approach whatever situation you find yourself in today.
