Most of us have been experiencing ‘having more time’ and now see that it has not solved our feeling of being rushed, anxious and like we’re not doing enough. Granted, a big dose of ‘something to worry about and something major to deal with’ has been dumped on us, which has added to our worry, that rushed feeling and that feeling we should be doing something.
Until We Rest Our Minds, Our Bodies Will Not
If you’ve had more time to sleep and have had fewer daily demands and find that you are still very tired, it’s probably because your mind won’t let you rest. It really may be all in your head. You may be experiencing the thoughts, emotions and your personal issues in a way you were too busy to notice before. You are no longer able to push them aside, until ‘later’ when you have more time.
Have you tried meditation?
Have you tried walks in nature?
Have you downloaded a relaxation app?
How’s that working for you?
These are all great tools. It takes a long time to quiet a mind that has not been quiet for years
Our minds are also wonderful tools. Thinking has served us supremely well. But it is our self-determination based on our altruistic desires (best for self and all) that should, ideally, be running the show, not our minds. When your mind is ‘in charge’ it sets itself on attending to your survival needs, protecting and keeping you safe, but also narrowing possibilities and limiting your experiences.
When Your Mind Can Rest, Your Physical Body Will Be Able to Restore Itself
I have been practicing thought work and calming my mind with many techniques for over 10 years. I see the difference. I am different. I have been able to sleep reasonably well during these global events and all my personal concerns. Note: there will always be events and concerns. When your mind can rest even with events and concerns, your physical body will be able to rest and restore itself.
Once we are ‘fully’ rested, mind and body, we can go about expanding into who we really are, who we are meant to be, above and beyond your survival and protection.
