Sometimes we can get so engrossed in our thoughts that we wind up going round in round in circles, finding it difficult to concentrate on anything and, because we are so distracted, not really accomplishing much. There may be signals – mental, emotional, and physical – that are telling us we need to slow down and relax. But because we are so involved in things that are external to us, we may not notice what is really going on inside of us. It is during these times that we need to step back from the things that occupy our minds and take time out to connect with our inner self, giving our minds, bodies, and spirits the time they need to reenergize and heal.
Initially it may seem that by taking a break we may not be as productive as we would like. In reality, a healthy period of rest is something that gives us a real sense of the unlimited nature of our true potential. Spending a couple of minutes walking outside in nature, doing a few yoga poses, meditating, or simply paying attention to our breathing enables us to let go of our worries. This act brings our focus back to the things that are truly essential for us, such as our sense of oneness with the universe and our inner peace and well-being. As we begin to get in touch with this part of ourselves, we will find that our usual everyday troubles and worries become less critical and that we not only have much more room in our lives to really reflect on the issues that mean the most to us, but we are also able bring to all the situations we encounter a much more positive and healthy outlook.
Giving ourselves respite from our daily worries is like giving a gift to ourselves. By stepping away from the problems that seem to fill our thoughts, we lessen the weight of our troubles and instead become more receptive to the wisdom and answers the universe has to offer us.
