Have you gotten back in the swing of things, or are you still in a post-holiday coma? I'm somewhere in the middle, with work actually having started this week.
Finding a rhythm and routine feels so daunting after a hiatus of some non-structure. There's this fine balance in life of finding joy in structure and non-structure. How do we lean into both and truly listen to what our beings are telling us? There is a natural craving to slow down and speed back up, but how often are we actually listening? Do we know what to hone in on?
It's the transition between the two that gets me, to be perfectly honest. As I transition from non-structure to structure this week, I find my body resisting. Maybe I got too comfortable? Doing what's best for my being will always take precedence. Because at the end of the day, I still have to figure out how to get to work at the time I do.
Alas, the balance in anything is what the whole human conundrum is all about anyways, right?! I just pray that tomorrow, I won't crawl back into my bed and sleep an extra hour.
Here are a few things that are helping me get back into the right state of mind.
As you find your rhythm and routine and transition back from the holidays, I hope you find tools and resources to support you. Remember, you never have to do life alone. At the very least, I hope this blog and this community make you feel part of something much greater!
