Tension is who you think you should be ...

Relaxation is who you are.


How often in the last week have you unintentionally created tension in your life?

 

Maybe you have … 

Put off something;

Tried to control a situation;

Said ‘yes’ when you wanted to say ‘no’;

Had unrealistic expectations;

Doubted your ability;

Not been true to yourself …

All these things build up over time, adding more and more tension. 

Add to that … 

Skipping a meal

Staying up late

Pushing through 

Scrolling on social media

Not stopping to rest

Not moving enough

Not listening to yourself 


No wonder we can sometimes feel terrible; mentally, physically and emotionally. We are not designed to stay in this constant state of chronic stress and tension long term.


At some stage you need to … 

Recognise your stressors

Honor your boundaries

Learn to say ‘no’

Honour your own time

Rest, relax and recharge

Reconnect with who you are

Put yourself first

Just 'be' 


This week I gently invite you to notice (and honour) those times in your day where you do feel rest and relaxed.


And it may only be a glimmer at the start:

those few minutes as you sip your morning brew in silence

after an afternoon nap

walking in nature

on the beach or with the dog

in the bath

after a massage

sitting in the sunshine at lunch

5 deep, intentional breaths before a meeting

If you can, really notice what it is that makes you feel this way. It could be a feeling of

ease

spaciousness

lightness

calm

confidence

energy

joy

peace

balance


As I say at the end of my sessions, be gentle with yourself.


Please do not hesitate to reach out if you need someone to talk to. I am here for you.


Until next time.

Much love
