As days go by, you find yourself in the midst of a crazy non-stop routine, just going from one place to the next without stopping, while you crave for weekends or days when there is less activity. Your body asks for help, but you ignore it until the day you can finally rest. You can rest a bunch, although that fatigue (also present in your head) does not give in.
Your mind is trying to imagine what day that crazy calendar is going to finally slow down for long enough so you can recover from so many things you do all the time. And now I ask you, “why do you do this to yourself?”. I bet you have a quick answer that came up, then ask yourself again, “why?”.
So, just close your eyes and imagine if all you have been doing could be done by somebody else. All those activities you do. You may drive a lot around taking people to places, or you may be a workaholic. The truth is: almost anyone could do the same, so you could be easily replaced. With that said, now would be a good time to stop and think if you could cut any of your daily activities, especially the ones that are not pleasing. Of course, you will say:”but I have to work to get a paycheck at the end of the month”. Yes, I know. But I am mentioning that extra run to the grocery store you might have to do because you don’t make a shopping list usually, or that sport you enrolled your kid in that neither of you enjoy. Why? Why bring an extra burden to your life? How about replacing one activity with a nature walk?
A nature walk is a cheap way to get your mind clear, fill your body with fresh air, and reconnect with nature. Who doesn’t want that? Well, maybe that person that sits in front of TV the moment he/she comes home from work until he goes to bed, but not you! You know life should be better than that! A walk in nature will reconnect you to that great source of energy, and will also bring you clarity and a peaceful state of mind.
Give it a try soon, and let me know if it made a difference in your day. Namaste!
