?Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.? ? Ralph Waldo Emerson
People usually look for external conditions for happiness and well-being. We think? if only I had X, I could be happy. If only I went on vacation for a week, I would be fine. This might work for a short while, and going away is a wonderful way of recharging your batteries. But for the effects to last, you need to improve your well-being and happiness levels internally.
When you rely on something outside yourself ? people, places, things ? the good feeling can be taken away as easily as it is given.
One of the keys to keeping the balance is to take daily actions for rest and rejuvenation rather than waiting until it is absolutely necessary.
Although you cannot force yourself to feel peaceful and happy, taking care of your well-being daily will leave you with ?energetic surplus? that?ll be available whenever it’s needed.
Taking care of your well-being daily?will help you to respond rather than react. It will give you the energy you need to cope with life, and ?It will keep you balanced.
The Bottom Line: Avoid ?energetic overdraft? by taking care of yourself and creating a ?energetic surplus?.
Ask: What are some simple activities you can do daily to improve your well-being?
Affirm: I fit rest and rejuvenation into my life, daily.
