We are no different to power batteries in a sense. If we keep doing the same thing without re-charging ourselves, eventually we run ourselves down to standstill.
Part of learning how to feel good is remembering to take time out every day to rejuvenate. When we do so we give ourselves new life and energy and feel a whole lot better no matter what it is we’re doing.
The best way to rejuvenate, is do something completely different from you’re currently doing. This will allow you to disconnect from what you’be been preoccupied with and “just let go” .
It can be something that takes as little as a few minutes or much much longer.
One of my favourite rejuvenation activities is to take a long walk on a Summer’s day. I particularly love walking close to where I live, from Clovelly Beach to Bondi Beach on the east coast of Sydney. It takes about an hour.
What I most love is to feel the sun on my face, smell the sea in the air, hear the crashing of the waves and just observe people having fun.
Today I did this walk with a few friends and we did so I noticed a whole lot of different ways in which people were rejuvenating themselves.
The first five ways below are what I saw as I walked and the rest some additional ways to rejuvenate yourself:
6. Have a hearty belly laugh!
7. Meditate or daydream.
8. Put on some music and have a good old dance.
9. B R E A T H E in and out deeply ten times.
10. Get a good night’s sleep.
11. Take a vacation.
12. Play with your pet.
13. Read a book.
14. Go to the movies.
15. Book a massage.
16. Spend time in your garden.
17. Play with your kids.
What rejuvenates one person does not necessarily another. You are the only one who can rejuvenate yourself so stop whatever you’re doing at some point today and take a break.
Take time regularly to distract yourself because when you do, you have fun, feel good and allow yourself to connect within.
What are you favourite ways to rejuvenate? Can you add some more ideas to the list?
