Are you following along with this week’s Book Club Book? We’re going through Nourished: A Search for Health, Happiness, and a Good Night’s Sleep. Here were a few thoughts I had after reading Part 1 (chapters 1, 2, and 3):
I loved this quote: “I came to the diving realization that if I were going to survive a life of more pouring out, physically and emotionally, I must be more diligent about pauses for refilling. I needed to regularly nourish myself if I was going to take on caring for so many others.”
Yes. This. And it’s something I can so easily forget. If I’m pouring and pouring and pouring, but never replenishing myself, of course I’m going to feel exhausted and overwhelmed. Refueling is so vital to a healthy, vibrant life.
This quote packed a punch: “Maybe you don’t need a new job, but a fresh attitude instead. Maybe you don’t need to lose twenty pounds, you just need to love the body you are in…”
Whoa! Those are powerful words, aren’t they?? How often are we pining away for greener pastures instead of loving the ground we’re already on?
Did you read Part 1 of Nourished? If so, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it or your thoughts on what I wrote above.
Tomorrow, we’ll be reading section 2 (chapters 4, 5, and 6). You’re welcome to join us! I always talk about what I’m learning on my Morning Motivation show on Periscope and then will also post a short post about it on the blog, as well!
