“But the real secret to lifelong good health is actually the opposite: Let your body take care of you.”Deepak Chopra
There’s nothing quite like doing work with your hands to get yourself out of your head.
Of course, that’s not the most original thought I’ve squeezed out of my brain 😅, but still.
It’s easy to forget how important making things and doing work with your hands is on our spirit.
Whenever I’m feeling off—tired, grumpy, frustrated, achy, short—99.9% of the time it’s because I need to sleep, or eat or move my body, or just take a break from all the mental work.
Don’t forget you have a body!
Your work is important, but it’s not everything.
When in doubt—
A good nights sleep, a good meal and a short walk and I’m living my best life!
And if that doesn’t work create something with your hands.
- paint something
- fix something around your house
- change the oil in your car
- chop some wood
- knit yourself a sweater
- learn origami
- pick up your guitar
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
