The other day I was mowing the lawn & Guy came home, he immediately started hoovering, then tidying and I said to him stop, go sit.
Breathe for a minute.
I was busy, so he was busy, but having just got in from work, he was straight onto the ‘should dos’.
I always try and take some time each day to stop.
I am a strong believer in eating well, getting an early night, trying to reduce our exposure to so much commercial and distracting social media/TV and moving in a way that feels good.
Basically, it works.
It’s not boring, its just finding pieces of the puzzle that work for you and sticking to it.
Anyway, we don’t really stop in the summer do we?
Both socially, at home and with holidays, families and everything else, taking time for us becomes that thing on a pedestal that is not a priority right now.
I get it.
But, I also believe that in order to pour from our cup, we need to fill it up. And in order to feel energized, we need to do things that help ourselves. How often do you sit down feeling exhausted, then drag yourself to a class and suddenly feel so much better? The exhaustion can be mental, dehydration or simply repetition of routine day in day out.
Our classes run through the summer, we have drop in credits available, packs priced fairly and with generous periods to use them in, we try and take the classes outside as much as possible and we will ALWAYS offer everything within a class for you to feel strong, flexible and calm.
So press pause, put the dishes down, come and enjoy some time getting hugs, breathing deep and remembering that you can’t pour from an empty cup.
