Be honest – do you ever feel like you wanna just crawl under the covers and hide?
Me too. Especially when life gets crazy busy!
Sometimes life can feel like one big rat race.
And sure, taking a vacation can help, but what happens when it’s time to go back to real life?
When the bills, errands, work & family responsibilities are still there waiting for you?
That’s when you need a daily strategy to get you through.
The perfect way to do this is by having a few escape pods.
Escape pods: Tiny moments throughout your day to recharge, rejuvenate and bring yourself back to being human!
Escape pods can be anything from taking your dog on a walk to listening to a podcast.
Some of my favorite escape pods include reading, taking a bath, a 20 minute walk, or doing a meditation.
These tiny moments might not seem like much, but without them I’d be lost. Everybody needs to quiet their mind and have some mini stress free moments throughout the day.
Now, I know what you are thinking…
“Sounds all well and good but I don’t have TIME for that stuff!”
Well, let me give you a loving kick in the ass – FIND the time!
Escape pods are not optional. Without them you will eventually find yourself stressed out, burnt out, and the kind of tired that even your Grande at Starbucks can’t cure! And in order to be a functional human being, rather than a zombie like creature, you need these mini breaks. You might be able to keep it together for awhile, but in the long run, all of the “important” stuff you have to do, will suffer.
As I’ve said before, you can’t drive a car without any gas. The same is true for people. You need rest and the energy to perform your best. Could Batman take on the Joker if he didn’t have Alfred bringing him breakfast in bed? I think not!
Daily escape pods are crucial to surviving (and thriving!) as a human being. And they also make you a lot less cranky. (Or so my husband tells me).
So make a list right now of some little escape pods that you could sprinkle throughout your life. And more importantly, don’t feel selfish or guilty about using them.
We all need our own little slices of paradise in our lives on a regular basis. No plane tickets or palm trees required.
Now I wanna hear from you! What are some escape pods that you use to de-stress? Leave a comment and let us know. Sharing is caring!
