Stress is a common cause for both physical and mental health issues. The inbox of life never empties. We are able to reach out and be reached at almost any time. At the same time, it is human nature and often makes sense to do what appears to be more urgent and keep going without longer breaks, even if harmful to the body and mind in the long run.
Unscheduled activities such as rest and recovery time are often forgotten/post-phoned – something we do if we have the time after all of the day’s to-dos are done.
See if this challenge works for you: choose a day of the week, why not today?, a day when you:
1. do as few shores as necessary
2. instead focus on being present in the moment
3. schedule a restful activity during midday that feels like recovery for body and mind such as physical rest, why not outdoor and even if not able to sleep, or try meditation, reading etc.
