The Gloriousness of Self Care and Cat Naps
Yup today I took a nap and it was absolutely amazing. Getting to the point of actually allowing myself go and laying back down this morning was highly interesting. Since yesterday afternoon I had been feeling a bit off. I went to bed early last night knowing extra sleep would help my body recalibrate. This morning even though I felt better, within about two hours of being up I wasn’t feeling all that well again.
For two hours I attempted to distract myself and make reasons why napping is ‘unproductive’ and not a good use of my day. The more I resisted what my body was attempting to communicate to me the worse I felt. After this long internal back and forth I finally surrendered and allowed myself the space to sleep.
Within 20 mins of falling asleep I was woken up by a really wonderful and creative idea for a video blog. It was at this point I realized I had been going against the flow this morning and blocking my creative energies. Once realizing this I was able to really relax into the request my body was making for more rest.
From there I had a gloriously wonderful nap and slept for just over an hour. Upon waking I followed my inner guidance to make a really healthy lunch wrap full of all the organic veggies in my fridge and drink half of my 1.5L bottle of water.
Right now I’m feeling pretty great and on the road to a full reset. I know the rest of my afternoon will be divinely guided and while I have a couple work tasks to complete, the rest of the day is dedicated to truly relaxing into what my body, mind and spirit requires to play fully 100%.
Sometimes Radical Self Love lovers, to play full out we need to recharge and re-set.
I love and accept this about myself and I’m looking forward to enjoying the rest of the abundant blessings this beautiful day has to offer. From my heart to yours! 🙂
