076: You Have Permission to Pause

You Have Permission to Pause

A month or so ago, I woke up early, before the rest of the house, and lay in the darkness with my heart pounding uncomfortably. It was a physical reminder of something that I don’t like to think about very often: I have chronic health problems that aren’t just magically going to disappear if I ignore them. It is up to ME to change my life and my habits to regain my health. No one else is going to do that for me.

In this episode, I share a bit more of my story, as well as the three steps I am taking in order to give myself a month-long pause:

1) Choose a finite length of time for your break.

2) Look at your calendar and ruthlessly eliminate or postpone any stressful commitments during that time.   Don’t be afraid to tell the people in your life WHY you need a break and how they can support you.

3) Decide how you will use your time off to “get ahead” of your life and make changes that will help you reenter your life  in a much better place.
