Take The Reins

From A Moment For Yourself, Mar 2011 Self Magazine.


As I read the March issue of Self magazine, I ran across this sweet little excerpt that I know you’ll love.


Part of achieving vibrant health is re-defining our own boundaries and prioritizing self care.


The reason we spiral down into a depleted state is because we put EVERYTHING else before us. Soccer practice, doing laundry, the project at work, dinner with the in-laws, and cleaning the house became more important than our own health.


Right now you’re  thinking, “But Jen, I don’t have time for myself. Between my family and work, I’m lucky if I get 4 hours of sleep at night”.


When feel our lives are out of control we become frustrated and forceful in our actions. Guess what creeps in? Anxiety and depression, they are a smack on the head your life is going the wrong direction!


Nourishing your health is not an option, it is a requirement to feel alive and happy.


Imagine your physical, mental, and spiritual health is like a garden.


If you plant crops season after season without composting, weeding, and aerating, what happens? The fruits and veggies start to rot, get disease, and won’t grow.


Have you ever seen one of those gardens that is so bountiful that its energy  jumps out at you?  Those types of gardens you want to sit in all afternoon and absorb the vibe.  Caretakers of those gardens prune the plants, rotate crops, and amend the soil.  Conscious gardeners even talk to the plants or play music for them!


Our health and happiness is just like a garden, we must nurture it every day. Even if it’s just a little bit, over time the results are profound.  Depression lifts, patience come back, that heavy feeling in your chest melts away, and then you remember … “I haven’t had a panic attack since … I can’t remember!”
