Controversial opinion

Push. Do more. Get up early. Complete an ever growing list of things before you begin your day. Push through. Suck it up. Life isn’t going to wait for you, there’s no time to slow down or stop. You’ll get used to it.

I call BS

What if you’re not getting used to it?

What if you’re simply accepting that you feel, well a bit shit, even exhausted, have brain fog, seem to be going at snails pace, make unusual mistakes, even become a bit accident prone, but keep pushing through anyway because that’s what you ‘should’ do?

Rest is as important as work.

Rest is as important as play.

When we’re truly rested our mind is clearer, our decision making skills are better, our reaction times are faster and our bodies straight up work better in every way.

We are more efficient.

We are more effective.

I have witnessed and felt the result of too many years of lack of rest both in others and myself.

Adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue and other physical and mental illnesses.

Guilt while resting isn’t restful and recovery time drags on and on.

Honour your energy.

Listen to what your body is telling you.

At times you’ll be full of energy and raring to go. Utilise those times.

When you’re body says it needs you to slow down or straight up stop; listen, honour where you’re at and make choices in alignment with your energy in that moment.

Working with the eb and flow of your energy is actually more efficient than pushing yourself.

Think the tortoise and hare, but better still you get to be both by honouring both your hare and tortoise moments.

Honour your energy.

Find your own unique balance.
