Let’s talk about rest.

What’s your belief system around resting? How often have you heard the saying, I’ll sleep when I’m dead? How often do you tell yourself, I don’t have time to rest?

Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia were once my constant companions. Debilitating doesn’t even begin to cover the experience of living with these conditions. So when I talk about rest, it’s because I have learned the hard way, the value and wisdom of listening to my body and giving it rest.

Having good self-awareness and recognising when it’s time to nurture yourself is one of the kindest gifts you can give yourself!

Give yourself permission to rest when you need it. It’s not being lazy. It’s not a waste of time! It’s good economy! It’s banking energy stores. It’s an act of self love.

And resting will be different for us all. Some need complete bed rest. Some will find rest in being in the garden. Some just sitting in their favourite spot and reading. Some heading to their special place and immersing themselves in that space. Whatever rest is for you, honour the call when you hear it! Your body mind and soul with thank you.
