My amazing friend Lisa Carpenter has a line she uses…. She’s said it to me so many times, uses it on herself and all her coaching clients.
It’s this: “A tired mind is an arsehole”.
You laugh – but it’s TRUE!
When you are well rested – how different is everything in your life? How much more patience do you have? Energy? And how fewer rabbit holes do you go down? I bet a heap less!
Because a tired mind is an arsehole – it will deliver you worst case scenarios, it can’t make decisions, it’s quick to be triggered and then it’ll blame you for being the worst person in the world when you are triggered.
BUT YOU ARE JUST TIRED!
It’s September – and I wonder how much steam you have left for the rest of the year? I wonder if you even recognise the pace you are going? Your tired body is also a tired mind and a tired mind is an arsehole (I’ll keep saying it!)
Would you like to live with an arsehole? I bet not! And yet you accept this when you let yourself get tired.
I wonder if you’re rested? I wonder if you know that it can be another way?
How about we all exhale, ignore ourselves when we are tired – literally don’t entertain your jumbled thoughts – and concentrate instead on how to incorporate more rest into our lives?
Then let’s share ideas!
With love, as always
