How disciplined is your discipline?
Discipline is an important attribute to have. I do believe it is a form of self care. It gives you a road map, it takes the draining guesswork out of it. But how disciplined is your discipline? If you could drop everything, the lists, the obligations and your ‘self care’ or you time was not something that was just on the list and felt like a chore—what would that self care look like? It’s easy to jam-pack things in, to overwork, to over train, to identify as being ‘that’ person that does all the things and is there for everyone. It’s easy to begin to believe that your worth and you as a go-giver comes from the way in which you shuttle people around, say yes, be the caregiver, do the chores, work, then try to be a good human being. It gets confusing when you believe that your giving is the most important thing. But you forget about your receiving. Can you receive as much as you give? You can change your relationship with time and your busy days when you consider how it is you most want to feel. This is the beginning of receiving, realising that you too deserve that goodness that you dish out. You can start in the gym. Let your time there not be part of the to-do list, but have it’s own list. Can you exhale when you walk in the door and step away from the rigidity of what’s outside? Can you be on the receiving end and have it not be a task that’s not moulding you and shaping you into submission? Can you let your movement be the thing that you surrender to as your form of self care? Having discipline here is important so you have structure, yes, but you can also be malleable with it. ❤️You don’t have to conform here. Head here to grab Your Body Baseline.
