The hard work of true relaxation and renewal.

In our last Functional Friday episode we talked about us only being as strong as our level of recovery.

Daily there are things we do, with sleep being paramount. But there are other important aspects as well.

We often pursue relief, but not renewal. Kicking the shoes off at the end of the day. Watching a game or binge watching a show. Reading a novel. Eating out.

But do we ever finish these things and feel renewed and refreshed? Do we stand up, stretch our our arms and say, “Man, do I feel great now!”

Not usually. We might feel some relief, but not renewal. How about vacation? Do you generally feel refreshed when you return, especially those of us with kids? 

Or do you feel inspired by some good experiences, but fairly exhausted, needing a vacation from your vacation? So when do we find actual renewal that truly strengthens us for the long haul?

Or as you’ll hear my co-host Dr Randy James talk about, how do you go about The HARD work of true relaxation?

This is a significant part of the self-care you need understanding of and permission for if you are going to get closer to functioning at your full capacity.
