Do you know that VITALITY is another byproduct of responding skilfully to your needs?
…maybe we need to start with defining what vitality is.
What I see is that in our society vitality is being portrayed as jumping out of bed in the morning and welcoming your day with open arms and a big smile on your face, being ready to conquer the world!
In my eyes that’s a really bad way of looking at vitality.
Yes, sometimes you can wake up and jump out of bed full of joy and wonder.
But life is not like that all the time…
Sometimes you might struggle with your business/work, or be very tired from a busy period of work or looking after children, or have a disagreement with someone, or a loved one is ill or dying.
In those times I doubt that you will jump out of bed full of beans!
Does it mean that you have to loose your vitality and wellbeing? Does it mean we can only be ok when life is ‘rosy’?
If that’s your belief then I’m sorry to say but you’re screwed…
Because life is life and those challenges are part of it.
And there is another way…
A way that allows us to be real in our lives and the same time stay fully engaged.
A way to bring more pragmatic wisdom and skilful action into our lives. ☝️
A way that can help us stay connected and responsive to our needs within challenging circumstances.
It’s simply about showing up for yourself, acknowledging your feelings and responses, honouring your needs and above all responding to those needs with compassion.
It will look different for each one of us.
You might need:
> more time on your own
> more time with loved ones
> journal about your feelings and inner processes
> talk with others
> seek professional support
> move your body more
> seek more stillness
> change your job
> cut things out in your business
> shift your focus more into whatever nourishes your soul
It’s just so personal and individual. There is no cookie cutter approach. It’s just your inner wisdom guiding you to what you need.
And so vitality might mean eating well and taking rest so you don’t exhaust yourself and keep your energy levels steady.
It might mean going to your regular yoga sessions and have a movement practice that is right for you right now.
It might mean taking any other skilful action to nurture your vitality.
Because even in those challenging times we can still act with self-compassion and loving-kindness towards ourselves and relate to others and the world from this space. ❤️
