We’ve all been there. Done that. Bought the t-shirt.
It’s a part of life.
Kids get sick. Job lay-offs happen. Loved ones die. Mundane responsibilities of life get overwhelming. Life gets too busy for fun.
It’s during those times, which may be chronic, we usually reach for ways to somehow pamper ourselves.
Pamper (verb) – to treat with extreme or excessive care and attention (Merriam-Webster dictionary)
We rationalize, "Life’s been hard. I deserve a break. I deserve to be pampered. It's okay. Everyone will understand. No one will care if I dig into a huge bowl of ice-cream and hot fudge. I’ll skip exercise and do whatever I want. Forget health. When life gets easier, I’ll focus on it again.”
WAKE-UP AND BUST THE LIES!
It’s in moments like these that “excessive care and attention” are required the most!
It’s in times of stress that excellent nutrition, exercise and rejuvenation are crucial to restore optimal health and well-being.
Excellent nutrition will nourish the cells with much needed micronutrients, minerals and phytochemicals.
Exercise will oxygenize and rejuvenate the mind and entire body.
An empty stomach will cleanse toxins and provide deep, restorative rest.
Let’s wake up to reality. Let’s make the choice to pamper our bodies with kindness during times of stress.
A body under stress deserves the best of care possible.
Let’s shine the light into the deep crevices of our thoughts and expose the lies that hold us captive.
Do we pamper our bodies with the best of care during times of stress?
The truth will set us free.
