We have all been conditioned to think that busy is best.
It’s our natural go to response, when we are asked how things are..”I’m good, busy…”
But the fact is we are too over saturated and too over stretched.
And that is not good ~ on so many levels.
Whilst we feel that we don’t have time to take time out, the reality is filling every moment, being productive all of the time, is actually working against us.
There are countless studies which show the adverse effects of multi-tasking, it can have the same effect on your brain as being under the influence of marijuana or alcohol, slowing your reaction times and cognitive ability.
Looking at your phone in between and during every other activity you are doing counts as multi-tasking too.
We are so distracted by all of the things, we find ourselves pulled from one task to another without realising. Not deeply focusing on what we are doing or who we are with. And often forgetting what we were up to half way through.
If you really stop to think about this, you know this is not good.
The great news is that something as simple as stepping outside for 30 minutes each day, can improve your productivity by 45% ~ That is massive!
Even more importantly, being in nature can improve your memory and concentration, make you feel happier and more connected to the world you live in, relieves stress, helps weight loss, improves Vitamin D absorption, boosts your immune system, improves your mood and makes you feel more relaxed, just to name a few.
Getting outside and taking some time for you, should not be seen as a luxury.
It improves your quality of life, which in turns ripples out across all other aspects of your life ~ personal, family, relationships, work, business.
I have been the person who refused to leave her desk for 12+ hours a day and never go outside.
I am now the person who makes sure I get outside, EVERY.SINGLE.DAY..rain or shine and I can hand on heart say, my life is infinitely more abundant in every sense, since I became the latter.
It is why I feel so passionate about incorporating mindfulness and you time into your everyday life because the benefits are huge.
If you are not making time to look after yourself, to take time out for you ~ you need to ask yourself why?
Are their self worth issues and not enoughness stopping you?
Do you need to set better boundaries in areas of your life?
Do you need some help with accountability?
I promise, addressing these will change your life, as will getting outside and taking some time for you every day.
P.s Don’t forget if you are curious to experience coaching, I offer a complimentary session, so you can try for yourself, no obligation, no expectations, just complete liberation ~ I promise, even from this free session you will feel transformed.
