bevAre you tired, stressed out, beat down?
Life can be extremely hectic. No doubt, the struggle is real.
The question is: Have you been taking care of yourself?
We only get one chance at this gift called life and we need to cherish it.
So… when you’re weary take some time to rest, refresh and renew yourself, your body, mind and spirit. And then you’ll be able to move forward with strength and vitality.
Take a little time to just relax and take it easy even if it’s only for a few minutes a day, and appreciate the little things.
Don’t let life just pass you by, remember to live in the moment and take time to remember the blessings…
We spend so much time doing and very little time just ‘being’.
Allow God to restore, to heal, to replenish and refocus your mind.
Matthew 11:28 says:
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Rest and self-care are so important. Self-care has to be deliberate and intentional.
Schedule your quiet time, your fun time, and your exercise. Decide to make healthier food choices, drink more water and just be still sometimes.
Create healthy boundaries and remember to call to make that physical or dental appointment that you’ve been meaning to schedule.
You know the old saying: “Prevention is better than cure.”
These things may seem basic, but sometimes we have to get back to the basics.
We’re so busy being busy that we forget that we cannot run on empty.
If our temple isn’t working, it’s very hard to get anything else done.
When you take the time to replenish yourself, it allows you to serve others from the overflow.
You can’t give anything to anyone if your vessel is empty.
So…
Don’t neglect yourself, practice self-care.
If you don’t take care of you, who will?
The best gift that you can give yourself is taking care of you,
spirit, soul and body.
This year, decide to make healthy living a priority.
Don’t just think about it. You have what it takes to do it!
Blessings,
Bev.
