Give Your Mind Some Credit…and Rest

If you carried a 25-lb. weight with you everywhere you went, all day long, you’d be drained by the end of the day. Now, imagine doing that for weeks, months and in some cases years! You would be so physically drained that you almost wouldn’t be able to function, and yet that is exactly what we do with our problems.

Our problems constantly drain our mental and spiritual energy each second of the day. Because it’s our mind and spirit though, we somehow convince ourselves that we can “handle it” or that “everybody” has problems. Yet, if we’re physically tired or worn out we’d lay down and sleep or at least rest. Mentally that’s another story…

“I’LL JUST POWER THROUGH IT!” No, “Enough is Enough!” You deserve to work at 100%, but that means listening to your body AND your mind. When you’re feeling recharged and calm, you’re open to life and you can focus. When you are mentally weary, you can’t focus, and you end up making more mistakes.  Then you become more frustrated and mentally tired – casting you into a vicious circle that only deepens.
