Paused or Stopped?
Have you ever taken a moment to pause in the midst of a difficult situation? Pausing can be powerful. It can help you gain perspective so you can handle a situation in a more effective and calm manner.
If you’re like me, pausing doesn’t come naturally. It’s easy to continue on without rest or allow a pause to become a full stop. Pausing is skill that can be developed and nurtured. With the new year just beginning, this is a great time to develop your internal pause skills.
Therefore, I encourage you to take a moment to pause and honestly reflect on want you want to cultivate in your life this year. Below are some questions you may want to consider.
In the midst of the craziness of the past year have you let some important pauses become stops? Can you move and go about activities of everyday life with ease? Do you have a fitness routine? Are you still doing it? If you do, is the routine missing something? Would you benefit from support from a professional who can guide you to a balanced fitness routine and help you make it a habit? Are you eating meals that nourish your body so that you feel good and energized throughout the day? Could you maybe use some support and guidance to make healthier choices?
Maybe pausing to answer these questions has helped you realize that you need some guidance. If that’s the case for you, I encourage you to reach out to a personal trainer, health coach, or other health professional.
Thanks for reading. Happy New Year! I hope you have a safe and healthy month.
