Do you know someone who just can’t relax?
A lot of us, especially in big cities, have a hard time with it.
We’ve got a bazillion things to do - gotta go go go!
Everyone knows it’s not healthy to live always on the go, but what do you do if you just CANT relax?
What if sitting still makes you want to jump out of your skin?
How do you relax if relaxing stresses you out???? First it helps to understand WHY you can’t relax.
It’s because of momentum.
If you think of your life as a river, the current is how you move through life- your “vibe”.
Some people have a slower moving vibe, others move faster.
Along the river there are stretches of rapids (stress / anxiety /fear /rage) and stretches of calm, sometimes boulders and rocks.
Definitely a waterfall or two.
The pull of the current- that’s momentum.
It’s the Force that pulls us forward through life.
Imagine being in a stretch of rapids, with the force of the water, and trying to grind to a halt.
That’s what it feels like when you try to relax after you’ve been go go going awhile (you’ve got some momentum!) Your body may try to be still, but your energy still feels the pull of the rapids.
That discord is uncomfortable.
It’s not that you don’t WANT to relax, you CAN’T relax.
It is very easy to get caught up in the rapids and stuck there for a while.
The current is strong.
And the longer you’re in it, the more forceful the momentum (change in momentum = Force x Time).
It becomes harder and harder to get out.
NOW is the best and perfect time to start redirecting your energy so you can relax!
There are 2 techniques for getting to calmer waters that work WITH the Forces of Energy - so they work!
I’ll share those 2 techniques with y’all tomorrow- Stay tuned!! In the meantime, take some time today to notice your current, your vibe, how you move through life.
Then try to feel the flow of the path of least resistance, so you move through your day on a current that is fun and fast, not rocky and treacherous!
Tomorrow we’ll talk technique!
Let me know how it goes!
Happy Thursday!!! Always with love, co
