What re­stores, en­er­gises you?

Central Leader - - WHAT’S ON -

I know my fo­cus for the new year needs to be on in­cor­po­rat­ing more rest and gen­tle ways of car­ing for my­self. I’ve had a ter­ri­ble year at work and am re­ally feel­ing the ef­fects. Can you give me some ideas about ways I can get more rest while still get­ting things done that I’m re­spon­si­ble for? Thanks so much. Leyla

Hi Leyla, firstly, good on you for recog­nis­ing that your phys­i­cal and emo­tional health would be bet­ter sup­ported through more rest and gen­tle ways. Many peo­ple would ben­e­fit from this. The first thing I’d sug­gest you ex­plore is what re­stores and en­er­gises you. This can be dif­fer­ent for all of us. How­ever, reg­u­larly find­ing space so that you can rest is one of the best health in­vest­ments you can make. In to­day’s world be­ing ‘‘busy’’ is of­ten worn like a badge of hon­our; many peo­ple see rest as fail­ure. So if you’re seek­ing per­mis­sion to rest, here it is! Here are some ideas to help you in­cor­po­rate more rest and restora­tion in your life.
