When I take the time to relax, I can focus better and have more energy for the tasks needed to get done. At times when I need to relax, “beat up” messages will come up. Here are some tips on dialing down these messages:
Don’t beat yourself up when you need to relax. Listen to your body, take breaks when needed and have better energy and focus to get your to-dos done more efficiently.
It’s important to put yourself first at times so you have energy to do all the other things. Take the walk that helps with stress and have energy later to wrap or shop for gifts.
When they pop up don't think about them, just do them. This sets yourself up for great self-care and energy to do the things you want to do.

On the weekend my Honey and I went to window visit with my Mom at her care place. She’s in her late 80’s and her time here on earth is short, I believe. I remember the robust, full of energy woman she was and it’s sad to see her dwindling and know she’s not going to be here for very much longer. Often, I want to push the sadness away but it’s okay to acknowledge and allow it flow through me in a natural way, like a stream flowing in, through and out of me in a peaceful way. When visualizing the creak flowing sadness through me, it made it easier to spend time with the feeling instead of pushing it away.
Holding point creates this visualization into a super tool! This is a way to spend time with uncomfortable feelings and to release them.
