You may find yourself feeling frustrated and impatient in your interactions with others. You might experience misunderstandings & miscommunications and this could leave you feeling like you want to withdraw from the world. While you may not be able to set aside all of your obligations, you might find it beneficial to escape from tension & enjoy a short period of personal time today.
Consider a restorative intermission in which you can pursue activities that soothe your nerves & fill you with a sense of peacefulness. Ideal pastimes would be calming meditation, quiet reading, or inspiring visualization. When you emerge from these activities, you should find you feel stronger & better able to connect with others in productive ways.
Taking a break from stressful circumstances can clear our minds, lift our spirits, and return a sense of harmony to our interactions with others. We often feel obligated to continue with our normal activities even when we’re feeling overwhelmed & frustrated. By giving ourselves permission to take a short break from stress, we’re able to gain control over our emotions and foster a more positive mind-set.
Engaging in restorative activities like meditation & visualization also help us release tension & clear our minds of scattered thoughts, which can improve our communications with others. With lifted spirits and a clearer focus, we’re able to continue our normal activities feeling refreshed & renewed. Your activities can become peaceful and productive if you make time for a restorative intermission. Creating a home containing food and fire for both the mind & the body will help restore your soul.
