Purpose and benefits of self-care – the axe sharpening premise
Schedule time to tune your mind, body, heart, and spirit. Set these appointments as a priority. If work interferes, you must reschedule this self-care ASAP.
The mind, body, heart, and spirit are designed to need rest, reflection, engagement with community, and nourishment in order to function. You need 7-9 hrs of sleep daily and at least one day of rest weekly, for example.
Any aspect you starve will cripple your productivity in other areas.
Overindulgence, self-centeredness, and failure to offer sufficient contributions degrade well being over time. Such stagnancy can occur as an overcompensating result of failing to care for mind, body, spirit, and heart effectively.
Knowing your vision and purpose, your why, helps focus and center this balance. In a spiritually guided life-purpose, productivity and well-being strengthen one another.
When you optimize your life, others will benefit from how AND what you accomplish in your activities.
