The One Simple Thing You Must Learn to Do …
If you’re tired, run down , a bit off form, life can be tough going. Even getting out of bed in the morning can be a Big Deal. And that’s just the physical side. Then there’s the mental factor. The mind and the body are linked every moment of every minute. They affect each other profoundly. All the time.
You can be physically fit, but mentally out of sorts. Your motivation can be low, your plan of action hazy, even your desire to do anything can be undermined.
That can lead to a dull existence. Even a depressing one. Life can lose its colour. The way can get confused, complicated, misleading. You can end up tramping endlessly to get nowhere.
The energy, the drive, the direction we take, begins with ourselves. Clinical illness apart, we are the deciding factor in how we think, how we feel, how we are. Too frequently, we let other people, events, circumstances dictate how we think, how we feel and how we behave. We often relinquish influence, direction, meaning, to our lives, without even realizing it.
That’s why we need to stop, quieten our lives, rest our minds. Too often today, the relentless pace at which we live over-rides the whole purpose of our living. We can end up enslaved to a system.
Taking life back into the fold of your own administration gives it meaning and direction. It also can open up a resting or forgotten sense of purpose.
But unless you practice the fact of stopping, halting, resting the mind and the body, you may find yourself run down, burnt out, and of no damn use to yourself or anybody else.
Learn how to stop. And that’s the one simple thing.
