You aren’t too busy to take care of yourself or to prioritize your health.
Sure, you might be able to tell yourself and others that’s the reason you aren’t making progress or doing the work, but it doesn’t make it true. It’s just a convenient story – a permission slip you write yourself for being inconsistent.
The reality is – taking great care of yourself increases your bandwidth, it doesn’t decrease it. It gives you more energy, more focus, more determination, clarity and efficiency.
I love the Zen saying about meditation. “If you don’t have time to meditate for an hour each day, meditate for two hours.” If you think you’re too busy, you need to adjust both your schedule and your perspective!
There are so many other elements to this permissive lie and we’re exploring them all on today’s episode!
