Holiday season is approaching ! What does it means to take a break ?
A vacation should be a time when we regenerate and collect new energy to invest in our daily life.
It is also a time for doing something different : resting on the beach, trekking up mountains, party on beautiful islands 🙂
It can also be a time to know our self better and get stronger in who we are.
When we fall in love, I mean the moment we feel butterflies in our stomach, our life, for a while changes. The emotions and experience we feel when we meet a new person (or start a new project) create a state where everything seems to be new, intense and beautiful. Generally, we think it comes from the love we feel. And we know that after a while this feeling will slow down; the excitement fades away and it leads to… routine!
When pain is short-lived and passes quickly, we experience it but do not suffer. When pain is a constant presence, it causes suffering: injury, constantly aching back, recurring headaches, hurting knees.
It can also be experienced as the pain of failure, loss or separation.
When we suffer from physical or emotional pain, our first reaction is to make something to reduce the sensation.
– we make effort;
– we create tension in the whole body;
– we become less sensitive.
By producing this reaction – this automatic pattern -, we reduce our capacity of self-healing and recovery of the body.
Learn to deal differently to pain by paying attention to your body and to your emotions.
