I don’t know about you but every now and again I need to reset.
We tend to get caught up in familiar cycles, every day routines, and even the grind that we don’t realize that we are loosing ourselves and risking potential breakdowns during this thing called life.
For me, I realize I had to reset when my insomnia kicked in. I went 4 days straight with no sleep. I would just sit in the dark and think. Pretty scary, I know.
At this point, I had to make a decision on how I wanted to handle this. Do I go to a doctor and get a prescription for some sleep aid? or Do I do the self work to RESET, REFOCUS, AND RECLAIM myself.
Here are a few things I’ve done (in no particular order) to help me get back to myself:
1. TAKE A BREAK. It is OK to take a break from EVERYTHING. Give your mind a break from all productivity. Take some time away from work, family and kids. Head to a beach and just listen to the waves. No phone. No social media. Its just you and the ocean. Try to mediate if you can to clear your mind.
2. GET RID OF ANY STRESSFUL SITUATION. You should reevaluate all situations that’s going on in your life and remove anything that brings you more stress than happiness.
3. HAVE FUN. Get out and let your hair down. The great thing about living in Florida is we live where people come to vacation. Head south for a 1-2 day stay-cation and have a blast.
4. CHANGE YOUR SCENERY. Go to new places and meet new people. Some times just a change in your scenery can bring on such good vibes and energy that can inspire you to get back to yourself.
Doing any of the about steps can help you reset. The most important thing to do is to always put YOU first. From time to time I tend to forget that but with a quick RESET, I always bounce back. Love yourself enough to do the work so that you can get back to being the best version of yourself.
I’m happy to say I have RESET MY MIND. REFOCUS ON MYSELF. RECLAIM MY HAPPINESS.
