When you are on the road of change, sometimes you have to stop to smell the roses. In today’s fast pace world, we want quick results and simply want to be told what to do so that we don’t have to think about it for ourselves. This gets us by for a while, but before you know it, usually in times of crisis or stress overload, we have lost our connection to how we really feel inside, physically, mentally, and emotionally. This disconnect impairs our ability to heal, be productive, and thrive. The idea that if we don’t take care of ourselves first, we cannot optimally take care of others, is so true.
