Visit yourself

“Once in a while you need to take a break and visit yourself.” -Audrey Giorgi
I have been obsessed with this quote for the past few days. The theme this month at K.Cole Wellness is “Take a Break” and I have been diving into how important breaks are to our self-care practices.
What am I missing when I don’t take breaks to check and visit myself? A lot, actually. Sometimes I am moving so fast that I am not attuned to how I am really feeling or what I most need. Life has been teaching me to do things differently, though. Because the crash/burn cycle does not have to be the norm. Life can be more than rushing around both internally and externally. I am not going to lie, it is hard sometimes to take breaks. That pause can feel like it is not necessary. I feel like I could be doing more important things with my time. But then I realize that I am the important work of my day, too. That is why that quote just gives me goosebumps every time I read it. Breaks are a reminder that I am important. A reminder to see about me. A reminder to breathe in the spaces that feel tough right now. And a time for me to catch my breath as I navigate a life that often requires so much of my energy.
The next time you find yourself skipping out on the break remember this: Breaks are a simple way to prioritize yourself throughout the day. You are worth the time. You are worth the effort. You are worth the space.
So, take your breaks. Check-in with yourself. Listen for what you need. Then, give generously to you.
