In this society, we were never taught that rest and relaxation are necessary for our mental wellbeing. Instead, we were taught to pop as many pills as we can in order to function as normal and to ignore our intuition. And look where that has gotten us. But it's a new day and it's time to do it differently. We now know that we can`t keep doing the same thing and expecting a different result. Cheers~

8 reflections
I learned I need to listen to my body and do things for me, not other people trying to make them happy, at the cost of myself.
Self Care
I learned that I should never be made to feel guilty for needing time for self care, before I can be remotely good company for, or care for anyone else.
Burnout talk
I like this one, good reminders about ignoring the noise in your head
This was an incredible reminder of being able to rewrite what we were taught and shown through our life. We can overcome and do things differently. In the end we are not getting a reward for how hard we worked or how crammed full we kept our calendars. If the soul says no, let the mind and mouth say the same.
Brilliant talk
I found this really uplifting and to the point. I am going to make sure I build in rest when I hear my body asking for it. I am not going to let resentment build up, and be prepared to say no. Looking after my wife and kids is important, but not looking after myself is the greatest disrespect.
I am huge proponent of rest and I listen to my body when it needs to rest. It concerns me that people/society values busyness and doesn’t adopt a restful lifestyle. Keep rest in your life. Look into other cultures’ restful habits if you need to and find something that works for you. It is vital to your health.
To listen to my body and that I don’t have anything to prove by working harder. Rest when I need it. You can learn new things later and apply it. You don’t have to continue believing things that your parents taught you.
Learning to stay in my lane
I don’t have to make commitments to please others. Also I learned form the lesson that I don’t have to chase success in trying to get things . I have to chase being good to myself first and listen to God’s path for my life and future.
