We set goals because we want to be successful. We have dreams and desires that we are working hard to achieve. And while hard work is necessary to make dreams a reality, working too hard can undermine your success.
So, what do you do to replenish your spirit? Hopefully, you easily come up with a few answers to this question. If not, start to think about what activities you like to participate in when you are not working. What makes you laugh or feel relaxed?
Just like with affirmations, the key is to participate in a soul rejuvenating activity on a regular basis, and in fact, I highly recommend finding something you can do daily. Even if you are only spending 10-15 minutes on the activity, these small doses of fun go a long way.
If you are looking for something to do, try to find an activity that helps you express your creativity. Or perhaps learn to do something new. Last but not least, connect with family and friends. Nourishing your relationships also nourishes your soul.
Also, don’t forget to designate time for rest. You need that time off too! Don’t forget to turn off electronics during that time!
“Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.” – Eleanor Brownn
