A body in motion likes to stay in motion. A body at rest – well, it likes to rest!
When we give ourselves permission to coast intentionally, we can hold ourselves better accountable to resuming the tasks, projects or relationships that matter. Unfortunately, like myself at times, I see plenty of clients that do not use intention. Things just fall to the side and stay there. They then get frustrated with their lack of progress and the amount of distractions that keep them from their accomplishments. I do not think it is always possible to meet 100% of our commitments. It is possible though to 100% manage those commitments. We have to constantly re-negotiate with others and ourselves when it comes to our time and our energy.
Take a look at what is burgeoning in your life right now. For one, the holidays are right around the corner, and despite how much we love them, they bring extra tasks and responsibilities. What do you need to put off with intention? Then decide for how long you will intentionally put it off. There is no judgment in giving yourself a break! Everyone needs one now and then. My blogging break is now over, and I’m happy to declare I have resumed. Although, I cannot promise I will not need another break in the future!
