The Dangers Of Expectations – Recharge Or Burn Out?
It’s OK to stop. To pause. Take time to reflect. And sometimes do absolutely nothing in an effort to recharge.
Why do we not take the time to recharge our batteries as often as we should? Because of expectations.
It is difficult enough dealing with our own expectations but when we add the expectations of others to the mix… stopping to recharge is almost unacceptable.
Take A Day Off Every Week To Recharge
The religious concept of a Sabbath shows us that the idea of a weekly day of rest is part of ancient wisdom. Somehow, our ancestors figured out that human nature is at its best with periods of work and intervals of rest.
Try to think of the things that truly make you happy. How many of them are related to your work, to constantly moving, to being busy?
What’s the worst that could happen if you slowed down and took a day off? What would happen if you did nothing today? Think about the negative outcomes your brain throws at you… are these likely to happen? Chances are, they are unlikely to actually happen.
Make A Plan To Do Nothing
You might have to plan a day of rest. Work harder the other days to give yourself some much deserved downtime.
Nobody else will give you permission to rest. You need to give yourself permission.
Tell your boss you cannot be contacted on that day. Email your clients in advance and let them know that you are unavailable. Text your friends and tell them you will not reachable.
Once you have created the environment to rest, give yourself permission to do whatever you feel like doing. It could be sleeping in, going for a run, watching TV all day long, listening to music or writing in your journal.
Time wasted is time well spent.
Enjoy your day off.
