One of my patients describes the events, activities, relationships, time commitments… all the “goings on” of her life as a ball.
When she was in a state of flow with the “goings on” she felt as though she was gently rolling the ball along.
When things felt at bit too over-whelming she felt as though she had somehow slipped to the other side… and the ball was rolling toward her, keeping her “running” so she wouldn’t be crushed.
I appreciate this imagery, it gave her the opportunity to stop at any point and notice which side of the ball she was on. We always have choice, and she would choose to do wellness care to slow the pace down.
Wellness care is the opportunity to stay ahead of the curve; it is inevitable that life will “deliver” and that “stress” will happen. Creating a wellness program allows for decompression before we end up in “crisis”.
One of my favorite examples of wellness care includes “pajama days” (vs. sick days). What if you planned to stay in your jammies a couple days a month so you didn’t end up in overdrive pushing so hard that your body demands a break with a cold or flu.
As part of Resonation Acupuncture Care I invite patients to establish a nurturing self-care wellness plan. Celebrate when your body-mind-soul are not in crisis and gift yourself a wellness re-boot. We need to “re-boot” on a regular basis. Establish a regular monthly or bi monthly Resonation Acupuncture wellness care appointment. Create the opportunity to step behind the ball and get back in the position of gently rolling along with your life’s flow.
I personally have some sort of re-boot on a weekly basis: time when I know I will have the support to stop and assess the flow and powerfully choose to be the gentle roller. I would be delighted to be a part of your self care wellness program. We can discuss a flow that works for you and design a pace of care that is practical and feels like LOVE.
Yes LOVE… because this is what you deserve.
