I need more Vitamin C in my life. Exhausted from a long week of adjusting back to work-life after my two weeks of play time in Greece, I have been battling the plethora of colds running rampant thanks to the change of seasons. Add to that the fact that my sleep patters have suffered thanks to the never-ending celebration expectations that accompany the holidays, and you can see why I’m needing re-charging.
We all need to be jump-started from time to time. As someone who prides oneself on their natural enthusiasm for life and energy levels, I have struggled to acknowledge that it is okay to shut down and be tired sometimes. Listen to your body, and trust it, for it speaks to you all the time if you just listen. It’s okay to need to take a workout easy, or to take a day off completely. It’s okay to be caffeine dependent for a day, looking forward all day to the moment when one can finally sleep. Our bodies crave fresh starts and natural rest, so let your body do all the talking for you and listen to it.
