There is added value in following one’s own natural cycles. Akin to the ocean and her tidal movements, you as individuals have your own ebbs, flows, high tide, low tide and so forth.
When you wake up in the morning you may get an inkling of how you would like your day to be. First connect with yourself to get a sense of your energy level or flow that day.
In particular, when on holidays, you will often find the choice is completely yours. Do you rest in bed a little longer and have a late breakfast or get up earlier to chase the first waves of daylight? These decisions and more are best made in accordance with your own inner cycle.
Similarly at work you may find that you feel a maxim of productivity spilling forth from your entire being. Master those tasks perceived as more difficult or time-consuming. It is like riding a big wave and feeling the energy behind you, carrying you easily. The same applies when working. Use this vitality to get through the larger tasks. Another day may see a more gentle low tide where energetically your natural inclination is sombre and calm, perhaps slower even. Undertake the quieter and less challenging tasks where possible.
Even for the creatives, when experiencing a lull in inspiration, you can choose to focus on the admin tasks or ride the internet absorbing creative designs of others that may not even be related to your field.
You know how it is when the creative juices are overflowing and you don’t even have to think about the actual design, solution, or next phase of your project. This state will flow to you again so rest in your down time in good faith.
Our cycles can be daily, hourly, interspersed in blocks of a month or more. However yours are occurring is the truth for you. No need to push extra hard all of the time.
The space that you give yourself to wind down provides you with big wave energy when later required.
Trust in this. Stay in sync with your energy cycles as much as possible. Be kind to you when you feel low or even diminished. For it is the physical, intellectual and emotional being asking you for quiet moments for energetic restoration.
The energy will be replenished and you have no need to fear otherwise. Rest and restore then truly invite the energy supply for continued circulation. It only completely stops for long periods if you believe this to be the case. Rest and say yes to the energy flowing to every cell.
Do yourself a favour, ask yourself how you are feeling today. Then respond with loving kindness taking your needs in to account.
This is self-love in action – or sometimes via inaction. Both are valuable and underpin your ability to thrive.
