There is something to be said for routine and body rhythm. While we sometimes need a break, we also thrive and look forward to getting back into a pace. Why is that, I often ask myself this following a desperately needed vacation or kids summer break? I believe it all comes back to balance. Our bodies thrive with balance - not too much, not too little, but just enough.
We can overdo it on anything, from broccoli to ice cream, too much of either means bad news for your system. Same with sun and rain, exercise and lethargy. We were created to thrive in balance. If you are feeling off, look internally instead of externally, what has you off balance? What are you missing that you used to love, how can you grow, what pushes you out of your comfort zone and what keeps you in? Be willing to ask yourself hard questions and lean on the counsel of close friends. We are designed to thrive, if we will allow ourselves to.
Look, we all fall out of alignment. It doesn't have to throw you in a downward spiral, though. There are people who are placed in our lives for a reason, who are there to help lift you up, get you on track, and guide you back to your best self. That changes from day to day, momemt to moment, year to year. Lean on them when you are in need, and be willing to give your hand and heart to those you can help as well.
