We live in a world full of information, high demands and expectations. A world of uncertainty and difficult decisions. It's hard to keep up with everything that's going on around us, which is why it's so important to stop and just listen. Listen to yourself. Check in with yourself. Leave the outside world behind for a while. Practice the ability to be present and find peace within yourself.
When you find this peace in a world of chaos, you realise that deep inside your heart is magic. But it takes practise and time to get there. It's a matter of prioritising spending time with yourself. Understanding how important this is for both yourself and others around you. It is only when we are in balance with ourselves that we can make good decisions, cope with the high demands and daily expectations set on us, and produce meaningful output. Calmness is the antithesis of the chaos that goes on around us, just as love is the antithesis of fear.
It's easy for the last drop to overflow the cup when you experience too much stress, both internal and external. To find balance, act early on your body's signals, make sure to prioritise physiological, AND psychosocial rest and recovery. Think about what gives you strength and energy. Think about what makes you relaxed and more at ease as a person.
