Monday Motivation - Time to Refresh

Happy Monday lovelies,

Burnout, overwhelm, exhaustion… it can happen to the best of us. I know all too well what it’s like to juggle a work/life balance, and we’re all aware what ramifications burning the candles at both ends can have on your overall life. That’s why it’s so important to refresh and reinvigorate, so you can be the best version of yourself and not compromise on precious energy.

Refreshing yourself helps to reduce stress and clear any blockages in your mind, so you can get more done, and in turn, be more productive and efficient. Think of how amazing you feel after returning from a gloriously relaxing holiday; you’re ready to take on the world! There’s a sparkle in your eye, your skin glows, and you feel at ease. It’s important to be able cultivate this same feeling regularly in your everyday life – holiday or no holiday – and all it takes is a bit of time out and a renewed perspective to rev up your engine and recharge yourself.

I know whenever I’m feeling fatigued or snowed under, I simply need to get back to basics to really feel centred again by stealing an hour or two to myself. It could include reading a fabulous book, going for a long walk outside, or decluttering my house, car, makeup case… you name it! All of these things can really give me that much-needed boost of energy I require to feel enhanced again and renergised.

As a new month has started we are reminded to ‘refresh’ more often than ever. It gives us an opportunity to gain new perspective and a chance to check in on ourselves. Each day and each moment we have the opportunity for a new and AWESOME beginning, to really give ourselves the self-love and self-care we deserve. I know it can be tricky if you’re a busy bee like me, but trust me when I say, it makes a world of difference in the grand scheme of things and actually helps reduce those menial everyday pressures.

I hope you had a chance to sneak in some ‘me’ time this past Easter long weekend, and what better time than now to take a break and really breathe.

Make it your goal this week, this month, this year to bring about a smile to your face and a bounce to your step, simply by refreshing your perspective and giving your body and mind what it needs.

Turn inwards for the answers; listen, act, refresh, reawaken, renew, revel. Do this often, and you’re onto a good thing.

Let me know in the comments how you’re planning to REFRESH and RENEW yourself.
