Have you ever had one of those days where you wished you felt more healthy and vibrant?
Have you ever had one of those days where you wished that there was a way to do it that is natural, that doesn’t compromise your wallet or other areas of your life and is as good for others as it is for you and even serves the greater good?
Maybe you spend most days feeling that there aren’t enough hours in the day? Possibly you get through work only to find yourself exhausted by 5 pm and too tired for anything in the evening. Potentially, you sometimes feel as though your life is barely in control, but you don’t feel like you have time mental time or space to even know what you want anymore.
Imagine feeling that you had plenty of time and space in your days. Picture yourself with abundant energy and feeling calm, clear and in command of your life.
If you currently feel more like the former than the latter, would you agree you need some new strategies and approaches to get there?
According to an International Business Times report in March this year, Australians identify their workplace as the top source of mental fatigue, with over 59% of adults worried about money and providing for their family. Add to this, women are reported to experience higher levels of stress than men as they tend to manage a lot of household-related chores as well. So if you’re feeling under pressure you’re not alone and if you’re reading this in a room with 10 women, chances are at least 6 of you are feeling seriously stressed out right now.
So, you might be thinking, yes Ruth, and this is why I do yoga! You might even be thinking you’ve heard all this before and you know what to do you just don’t have the time.
You may also have discovered that awesome as getting to a yoga class is, it’s not a solution for the time crunch you’re feeling on a daily basis.
What I’ve discovered in my own life and through working with my students, is that we need a strategy that involves both daily effort and periodic retreating.
Going on retreat won’t solve all your life problems but it is one of the best things we can do for our health, our sanity and our ability to step back into the world and navigate those daily challenges with more energy, peace and clarity.
Because ultimately, when we put off self care, what is the cost going to be? Health problems because we ignored the weight creep or hormonal imbalances for too long? Compromising our relationships because we just don’t any energy or our work because we’re frequently off sick?
So if you’re ready to learn the art of deep self care and break the cycle of rat race living, come away for me with a half day retreat! Early bird tickets are still available and you can book in here.
