We have come to the final letter in my A-Z Penguin Pointers series. This was so much fun to do and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. So let’s jump in to the last letter~
New Years resolutions and planning are HUGE. So many of us get excited and pumped up to make changes. Even though I know it’s just a flip of the calendar, I do see it as a fresh start…a clean slate….an empty page! I want to look back a year from now and know that I didn’t waste a moment.
But while we are excited and pumped and planning and doing….we also need to remember to rest. When it comes to success or making changes, rest is just as important as hustle. Of course we want to make the most of each moment, but sometimes the MOST is to stop and rest and rejuvenate our bodies, minds and souls.
When you feel tired. Rest. When you feel overwhelmed. Rest. When you’re feeling frustrated or emotional or even REALLY REALLY happy. Rest!
Give yourself permission to take care of yourself and try as hard as you can to do it without guilt. (Guilt just sucks up some of the power rest can give us.)
Remind yourself as often as possible that by resting you are able to bring your A game to the table in every way possible. You will be a better significant other, parent, friend, daughter, son, worker and general light to the world…if you simply rest.
Happy New Years Eve! (Be safe…Have fun….and then rest!)
Thanks for reading~
