Finding Time for Another Walk Around the Lake!

RelaxFinding time for yourself and for self-care is one of the most important – and most-often-neglected – time finding tasks you have!  We’ve written about this many times in the past – and will do so many times in the months and years to come, too.  It’s THAT important.

Why? Self-care is the foundation on which everything else you do is built.  The quality of each of your moments depends on how you care for your body, your mind, and your spirit.  Each of these aspects of your being affects the perspective and energy that you bring to your life – and, in turn, your energy and perspective affect your actions.  It’s a circle that begins and ends with self-care.

Walk around the lake…

One of my favorite quotations about the fundamental value of self care comes from Wallace Stevens:

Perhaps the truth depends on a walk around the lake.

When you find time to “walk around the lake” you are giving yourself the space to access your truth.  This is not a luxury or an indulgence – I see it as a personal responsibility.

Nurturing and refreshing yourself – mind, body and spirit – is one of the tasks of living.  Finding the time to do that is an important priority that often requires a good bit of self-discipline to fulfill.

How often do you find time to take a walk around the lake?  Can you make more time for yourself to do this?  Please drop me a line – I’d love to hear how you work on this in your life!
