“Sometimes, to keep going, we have to allow ourselves to stop.”
—Gretchen Rubin, NY Times Bestselling Author, Podcaster, Speaker
It wasn’t until I had grandchildren that I learned “happy hour” was a new definition for a nap.
Regardless of my meditation practices, exercise efforts, and nutritional pursuits with the latest super foods, just a handful of hours with our two little ones drains most of the pep from my steps.
With some adjustments to our schedules, we have found ways to include the kids in some of our renewal and recharging efforts, including lots of quiet cuddling with pop-pop and grand-mom.
Where and when in your life do you feel the greatest need to stop in order to keep going?
How can you monitor and manage your energy levels to optimize your intentions and actions?
