I believe that living in your flow is hugely connected to self-love and holistic self-care. Meaning the best way to bring flow and balance to every part of your life is to first take care of yourself in mind, body, and spirit, then everything and everyone else in your life will benefit. Let me repeat. A life of flow is in many ways cultivated through acts of holistic self-nurturing and by unapologetically putting your needs and well-being first before you take care of others. This is a radical act for many especially those who have been brought up in a religious environment. Let me make this very clear. I do believe in giving and helping others. The problem is you CANNOT give something you do not have! When you fly they always tell you to put your own oxygen mask on first before you help your children. And this is basically how I live. Making sure you are okay and thriving so that you can better respond to and nurture those in your care. You are absolutely useless to anyone else if you are depleted and gasping for the time and energy you’ve completely given away before you’ve met your own needs. Besides taking care of others will consciously or unconsciously feel like a huge burden if you aren’t taking care of yourself as well and will lead to resentment. I realize this will make many with a spirit of RELIGION go crazy! However, it is a transformative way of living your best and most healthy life in flow.
Have your say!
