Rest, Comfort and Consolidation - Inspirational Insight No. 61


Hey Quester’s, how are you, hope you are showing the world your happy and confident nature? I’ve been fixing up a few half-finished projects – discipline is definitely the answer in getting those finished. More work to be done though! I find I’m very tired in the last few weeks so let’s think about whether or not we know how to read the signals that tell us to slow down.
We all have times when we want to retreat to the couch with a blanket, hot chocolate and a good book. Its winter in Australian and winter is designed to slow us down providing we are listening. A bit of rest, comfort and consolidation is needed in colder months or any other time your mind, body and soul is calling out to you. Parents know how to comfort tired or sick children, but often don’t pay enough attention to their own needs. If you need more sleep, go to bed earlier or take an afternoon nap. Maybe sit outside with a few blankets around you and watch nature’s glorious display, (nothing too taxing on the intellect).

The body is amazing but you can still work it too hard. Be kind to yourself by listening to those inner hints – the housework and other projects can wait. Try delegating if there are other capable people in your household. The world won’t end if you relinquish control for a few days. Give others a chance to show their kindness and leadership skills. In this time consolidate your thoughts and appreciate your place in the world. Rest and take comfort in small pleasures. You’ll know it times to get back to energetic or creative projects, but for now enjoy relaxation and simple joys.
