I’m a believer that no matter what our responsibilities are, no matter how many things we have to do, it is necessary to have an outlet.
What is an outlet? Just like we use an outlet to charge our electronic devices, an outlet for us would be an activity or something that helps us recharge our batteries so that we can have the energy to do all the other things that we have to do. It is that outlet that gives us strength, it helps us deal with the everyday life. An outlet can be an activity (i.e. yoga, meditation, exercise, reading, etc.) or a place that gives us a sense of peace. An outlet is like an “escape” to what we are doing every day. That outlet can also be a good friendship that we may have. The activity is up to you. There are so many things that one can do in order to entertain the mind and soul and thus have more health in every sense.
Why is it important to have this? When we live just to work, just to take care of the family, just to fulfill our everyday duties without having something that we do just for us that we truly enjoy, we can burn out. We can get to a point of boredom. When there is a great responsibility on us and we have no outlet to recharge our batteries, we can have a mental breakdown. Cultivating other areas of our life is just as important for our health and well-being like it is to be eating right. When we don’t place any importance on our mental, emotional and spiritual self, we may just start to slip. We may feel like things are going downhill and not understand why when the solution can be something as simple as having an activity that we enjoy for ourselves.
Part of taking care of ourselves is being able to have things that we enjoy doing, having people whose company we truly enjoy, anything that is healthy for our mind and soul. We must always feed our mind and soul in order to have well-being. What is it that you will be doing today in order to feed your mind and soul?
