DIG DEEP – get those resources out!
How do you carry on when you’re totally exhausted and are finding it difficult to get up one more time in the night, phone one more patient or play with your kids?
Whatever it is that you want to do and are too exhausted to do – read on!
I was given a book by Renee’ Brown by my coach. It was called the Gifts of Imperfection and it has inspired me to share one of her tips with you!
You “DIG” DEEP
So when you are in this situation where you are overwhelmed and exhausted:-
D DELIBERATE YOUR THOUGHTS AND BEHAVIOURS. This can be through meditation, mindfulness or simply by making a decision that this is going to be how it is – Called setting your intention
I BECOME INSPIRED TO MAKE NEW AND DIFFERENT CHOICES -You’ve always got choices – the trick is to take a step back and get them clear in your mind
G GET GOING -Take action on your choice. It always gets better then!
So- I’ve done that today!
I’d been up since 5am to go to a meeting, then had a 2 hour coaching session with a client, 50 miles away. and then we were due to go to London for a course I was doing. When we tried to start the motor home, it was completely DEAD! So I realised I had to DIG DEEP and that “keeping calm and carrying on” was probably not quite enough. My preference at the time was to have a prolonged scream!!
So I decided to do something useful, looked at my choices, got the book out and thought – “I should tell others about this”
So here it is!! Hope its useful to you. I’m off to sleep now so catch you up soon!
