About an hour ago I found myself scrolling mindlessly through facebook on my phone while half thinking of writing you this note when I realized that I was tired.
I was tired so I took a nap!
*gasp* Say What?!
I've been thinking a lot the past couple of weeks about this idea of nourishment. I've been thinking of it in relationship to food because I just got an Instant Pot and it has me excited about food again after a phase of feeling uninspired and I'm feeling nourished by my own cooking in a way I haven't felt for awhile.
I also feel nourished by my nap and I feel amused that it was difficult to just accept that I was tired and needed to sleep.
It seems obvious but if it was hard maybe it isn't so obvious.
Which has me thinking about other times:
When I've eaten chips when I'm sad instead of connecting with myself and my feelings and letting them flow.
When I've felt stuck and I've hunkered down in my stuckness instead of moving my body, even if it's just a teensy bit.
When I've needed help and instead of reaching out for support I've isolated myself further.
When I've felt hungry but haven't eaten.
When I've felt full but haven't stopped.
I imagine there are many other examples of this. What are some of yours?
My new moon intention is to eat when I'm hungry, nap when I'm tired and reach out when I need support. What's yours?
p.s. I love my clients and I love that my one on one practice has been growing over the past few months. At the moment I have room for just TWO more clients before filling my current capacity. I would LOVE to work with you if you feel called. Some of the things I've been helping clients with lately:
being more playful and creative!
clearing clutter to make room for a promotion at work
If you're curious please contact me with your phone number and a few good times to reach you this week and I'll call you to say hi and set up a time for a complimentary no pressure Clarity Call to help you get clear on what you want support with and how I can help.
