We are midway through 2021. It’s probably a good time to take a look at the goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the year.
- Is this still what you want?
- Do you wish to change your direction?
- Do all these goals still matter?
- Have your daily actions brought you closer to your goals or further away from them?
A reset is a time to reinspect your goals and your energy levels
Chi, also ki or qi, is the inner energy each of us possesses, the life force that permeates the universe. Your Chi is the source of creativity and the amount you have to spend on any given day is limited.
You might be using up all your Chi on everything else BUT your goals. This may cause you to feel frustrated, discontented and probably angry at times. These emotions make it even more difficult for you to get back on track.
You need to gain control over your stress
For me it was giving up crazy expectations I had for myself and my life. Not only around thoughts like “I should be here by now’ but also around how much I could actually get done in a day.
Until I started to time exactly how long I took on specific projects and tasks I was lousy at guestimates. Something I thought would take one hour, in reality took four. I was mindful not to squander time while I was measuring. I worked with a timer and took breaks in between each hour spent on work.
It is important to guard our Chi, and also develop a ritual for renergization which might include a cup of tea, a short nap, a 15 minute walk, or just sitting doing nothing – staring into space for ten minutes.
Whatever you need, give yourself that creative nourishment
As you reexamine your goals, remember that your body is an energy vessel and you need to constantly fuel and rest to recharge.
Now might be a great time to get your annual wellness checkup. If you don’t have a regular doctor, check out one of my clients Dr. Ryan Rabilall at OMNI Total Health.
