There’s lots of talk about environmental sustainability, but what about emotional sustainability? Stress, striving, worry and perfectionism aren’t sustainable in the long run. In other words, you’ll wear yourself out. Slow down, take a self-assessment of how you’re really doing in this moment, and allow your true needs to be honored.
How is your heart right now?
Take Three Minutes for Self-Care
Take a pause to stop what you’re doing and check in with yourself. Take a deep breath. Sit back. And ask yourself these questions:
How do you feel in your body in this moment?
Is there any discomfort? Worry? Irritation? Fear?
Breathe and let it be there – just for a moment.
If it’s uncomfortable, don’t worry. It won’t last if you’re willing to stay present with it.
Now ask yourself: What does your body need? What does your heart need? Go ahead and be bold in your answer!
Action is the last step, and can be proceeded into gently and realistically. Give yourself what your body needs. Give your heart what it needs. Hug yourself. Hold yourself. Wrap yourself up in a big fuzzy blanket and say, “I love you. I don’t want you to suffer. Let’s let go of this stressful thought.” Pray and ask, “Divine One, help me see this situation with new eyes. Help me care for myself better. Help me see the gift in this.”
How will you fashion your self-sustainable day?
