Rest Rest Rest & More rest

This past week has been so busy and I actually had to take the time to rest. As I have actually been sick for almost the entire weekend I'm so glad I did. There is so much power in listening to your body when it's spent.
Me and Michael were able to go away for the weekend for a change of scenery and I'm so glad we did. It's funny cause we planned this weekend  ahead of time so that we would be refreshed for the next couple of weeks and not get burned out but the first day I was already there and sick as well. But the rest of the weekend was better after that.

But I say this to say make sure YOU take time to rest and refill your soul. I have a list below of small things we can do to refill our cup ☕☕

1. Take a soothing bubble bath!
*Bonus: Add essential oils or bath salt after a busy day*
- A soothing bath gives you time to recharge and literally soothes your body.

2. Listen to your favorite music while doing a kick was workout!
- I know this may seem unexpected but this will allow you to be physically in touch with your body. And baby those endorphins though πŸ˜₯

3. Drink a cup of tea☕πŸ’•πŸ’•
- this will encourage you to slow down and really think about your day.
*Bonus: Try lavender, Green or Chamomile tea to relax.
** Double Bonus: With each sip you take try to list something you are thankful for with each sip!.... talking about some grateful tea!

4. Do an activity that brings you peace and doesn't require much brain activity. 
Example: Cleaning the dishes, washing the windows, binge watching TV, flip through magazines, Pinterest(yass please)
-I  know some of them sound counter-productive but in actuality they are allowing you to mentally reset if you are overloaded. The cleaning aspect is a double pro

5. Talk it out!
This can be as simple as talking to your best friends or even a counselor and even a spouse. As an introvert I feel so much better if I can talk out my stress with a close confidante and someone who loves and supports me. 
I heard it somewhere that when we surround ourselves with people that love us and KNOW us, that truly know us that can save us from sinking when we are surrounded my people that don't know our depths!

Hope Everyone has a great week & thanks for all of the love & support!

Til next time,

Peace & Love,
Karen Beatty πŸ’•πŸ’•
