Thoughts on rest: Timeout. A necessary ritual of life.

Sometimes we need to take a little time out, perhaps put ourselves in the adult version of the ‘naughty corner’ to breathe and heal our mind, body and spirit. Anything can trigger such a need for space, but I’ve found that it’s always good to use that alone time wisely to reassess, evaluate and set intentions for new goals. Life is chaos, and we cannot expect everyone to meet our needs. Being alone enables us to dive into our voids, get reacquainted with our strengths and shortcomings while we work through the process to become the better version of ourselves. Go with the flow and just let the progress unfold. You’ll be surprised at what surfaces. Time out is also an excellent way to cleanse and protect your energy. So don’t be afraid to hit the pause button on the daily grind to find some peace. Take a bath, read a book, meditate or just embrace the silence. It may seem overwhelming or scary at first, but you’ll see how quickly you unfold like a lotus flower.

Until next time.
