You need rest.
My clients often have a hard time giving themselves the rest they need. You may recognize this, too. You think you have to earn your rest. You think you must finish your chores before you can rest.
But you NEED rest.
It’s part of the ebb and flow of life. Look at nature. It rests in winter. Look at animals. They rest when they need it.
How do you know you need rest? Your body tells you. Your emotions tell you. You KNOW it.
So why don’t you rest?
Because you believe thoughts that don’t allow you to relax. You fear that you’ll miss out. You think you can’t grow your business if you don’t do more. You think you don’t deserve to rest yet. Or whatever story you tell yourself that makes you believe that you can’t rest now.
Stop resisting what you need.
If you need rest, rest. No matter how much you think you must do. The truth is that you don’t have to do nearly as much as you think. On the contrary. You most likely need to do LESS! (This is the case for 99,99% of my clients. One result they usually leave with is that they learned to relax, rest, and work less-while getting the same OR much better results.)
Check in with yourself.
Be honest. Do you need (more) rest? Do you crave being less busy and having more time for yourself? Do you long to BE more and not DO so much all the time?
You can have all that and more. You don’t have to wait until your vacation or the weekend before you’re allowed to rest. You can do less and still get the same or MUCH better results. It’s all available to you. And it starts with more REST. When you’re rested, you’re more creative. It’s easier to follow your intuition & take inspired action. And your intuition and inspired actions bring you better results with less effort than your rational mind can EVER accomplish!
Do less. BE more.
That’s really all you have to do. If you find this difficult, I can help. Check out my 1–1 coaching and apply for a spot if it resonates.
I’ll help you tune into what you REALLY want & how you TRULY want to live-and you’ll finally create the business & life you secretly dream of. You’ll feel so much freer, happier, fulfilled, rested & relaxed!
