Hey there! Good morning. Have you ever had one of those mornings you feel off? You know, wake up on the wrong side of the bed kind of days. Your head hurts, you feel like in order to move your body you have to move against the force of gravity, and even though you slept a good 7 hours you could probably do it all over again. Yep, thats me today, I’m having a day..and it’s only 10 am! It’s okay though you know…to have one of those days. Check it out, I plan ahead every week to get ready for what’s ahead. I’m one of those weird people who look forward to Mondays because it’s a day I get to talk to you and really feel productive in life. Today my body just had other plans.
We live in a world that thrives off hustle..go, go, GO mentality all day, everyday. It’s how we live in most parts of the world, especially here in the U.S. So when your body says stop, relax, and recover your mind says “No way Jose! we have work to get done, a house to clean, kids to pick up, deadlines to meet!” That way of thinking will get you into major trouble if you don’t listen to anything else but your head. When your body says rest, or if your hurting and your heart says cry….listen. I hope you not only listen, but act.
You and your body are the most complex essence on this Earth. No two are the same and man hasn’t found a way to recreate you in all your glory. Your body was made to speak to you when it needs something, as was your heart. Your mind is a very powerful tool too and when need be can override anything it wants, so learn the balance between your body, mind, and spirit. You will live a much happier and balanced life. Plus the people around you will thank you for staying in instead of being a raging..well, you know. :)
As for me, I was going to get a bunch of work done, instead I’m going to do that one task I need to get done today, read my new Anthony Robbins book to get some inspiration, and leave the cleaning and cooking for tomorrow. Rest, Relax, Recover. It’s more important than you know.
