In more recent years, I have been teaching my clients to “fill your tank first”. You’ve heard that you cannot pour from an empty vessel. So many of us, women especially, take care of everyone else in our lives and by the time we get to ourselves, there is no energy left. I have worked with many women that have experienced adrenal fatigue (essentially a burnout of the body’s energy) and in fact I myself have experienced this.
In the many years since I was a young mom, I realized that going to the gym was really not a practice for calming my highly sensitive nervous system, and although it did manage my anxiety and fill my tank a little, I really needed more than exercise. Now I have daily practices that help me calm my nervous system before starting the day, stay grounded throughout the day, and keep my energy field at a high vibration.
I have learned that it’s very hard to create these practices in the middle of a crisis. But when we have balancing practices already in place, then crises are less likely to take us off course. Or they may take us a little off course, but not completely uproot us.
What are the ways you currently stay grounded, calm and balanced?
How many of these ways are DAILY practices?
How often are you taking care of yourself, filling your tank, FIRST, before taking care of others?
What might be different if you DID fill your tank first, before taking care of others?
How would YOU be if you filled your tank first?
How would this affect others in your life?
I can’t wait to have this discussion with you as we work together.
