So, who CAN benefit from pacing?

To be very honest, I have been mulling over how to address this question in a comprehensive way (including all the details), but I think this is best answered by simply saying that every single one of us can benefit from pacing.  “Really?”, you say, “but I think I’m doing pretty well.”  That’s great!  Please hear me out, though.

Whether or not you are aware of the pacing that you have already applied in your life, the only way we can keep moving forward without burning out is by taking time to recuperate.  This might look simply like taking one day a week that we allow ourselves to sleep in as long as necessary.  Or maybe, we simply don’t rush out the door, but rather take time to sip our favorite beverage and read or study, or do something restorative at the end of the day, like taking a bath.  Even babies naturally take their own “time-out” by napping whenever necessary… and we know what happens when they miss their naps.  CRY BABY!

Are you among the growing number of people who always feels like they are on the edge of burnout… fighting every day not to fall apart?  If this is you, please do yourself a favor and recognize that taking a little time to reevaluate your priorities and schedule in times of rest, will actually save you time and energy, in the long run, and a whole lot of unnecessary stress.

I’ve included a few small ideas here of how to pace, but please keep your eyes out for my next post on, “PACING — HOW CAN WE START?”.

In fact, I’d love to share some of your ideas, so please comment below what you include in your daily and weekly routines in order to recuperate.  Take care my dears!
