Happy September everyone! You have survived the first week back to the “regular” schedule. The fall is upon us.
I’ve been recharging myself this past summer, and as @katenorthrup would call it, using my Egg Wisdom to rest. By nature, I’m an introvert (for those of you that are Myers-Briggs junkies, I’m an INFJ — a sensitive, empathic, intuitive person) and I need to recharge alone and doing the things that bring me back to centre. For me, those things include reading about things I’m passionate about, swimming, bike riding, being outside, watching fun and light shows on Netflix, sleeping…
Why is that so important?
If we don’t honour our needs, we get burned out and overwhelmed. Our feelings bubble up (frustration, anger, sadness) to tell us we’re out of whack. If we haven’t made time to pay attention, we can get physically sick. If we know how to recharge frequently (and sometimes, for a longer period) we can come back fresh and happy.
Reclaiming your energy in difficult times is even MORE important, but you have to know yourself first. This isn’t about what works for your family or friends — this is about you.
For the next 4 weeks, I’ll be posting once a week about different ways to consider that you might need to recharge. By the end, I hope that when you feel overwhelmed and fatigue you’ll be able to use some of the things you have learned about yourself to recharge in the ways that are best for you.
Chat next week! If you have questions or things you want me to address in the upcoming weeks, please send a PM and I’ll include answers to the questions I receive.
