Someone asked me the other day, “how do you do it all?” ….followed by “do you sleep?”
My answer to this is really so simple, I listen to my body.
When my body is telling me take a break, I take a break.
When my body is flowing with creativity and inspiration, I grind.
When my body is telling me to rest, I rest.
When my body is telling me to be still, I am still.
I listen to my inner guide, I get shit done, and still have plenty of time and room to play, unwind, and unplug.
Why? Because our conscious mind knows what’s best for us, and it’s trying to guide us 24/7, we’re just assholes and resist that guidance.
But when we are open to receiving that guidance… we create with ease, we are productive, we’re taking aligned action, we’re making the conscious choice to live out our purpose and trust in something that’s greater than we are.
So…how do I do it all…
Honestly – by intuition.
When I’m stuck on an idea, or unsure about pretty much anything, I turn to the Universe.
I don’t move forward or take action when things don’t feel right.
And on the other end, when things to feel right, I run full speed ahead taking action.
I trust my inner guide no matter what.
This is sometimes hard for people to do though.
Some people think that the only way to success and their dreams is to grind with no play. So when their body is telling them to rest and recharge, they don’t and then end up burning out.
I set boundaries to avoid burnout.
I genuinely don’t believe I can function at my full potential when I’m not taking the time for self-care. I set healthy limits, healthy goals, and when the Universe says jump, I ask how high.
Sometimes we honestly just make it more complicated than it has to be.
The Universe guides us in all aspects, but sometimes it’s easy to get so wrapped up in looking for this big mystical sign that we don’t even notice the smaller pieces of guidance we’re supposed to be receiving. Sometimes we ignore the smaller nudges awaiting this spiritual explosion and that’s a major disconnect.
It can be as simple as your body telling you that you need more sleep.
Your mind telling you that you need to get rid of all those overwhelming, overbearing thoughts.
Your energy telling you it’s time to release emotions that aren’t serving you.
Listening to those small nudges will get you closer to those amazing spiritual explosions you’re looking for.
You need to be in tuned.
You need to LISTEN.
You need to let go of any resistance.
You need to let your inner guide lead the way from this moment on.
So yes, I do it all. I juggle running a blog, and creating content that I think is actually valuable, I manage a household, work full time, put effort into my marriage, social life, and puppy. But I also sleep, unplug, vacation, and unwind.
Life is about balance.
When you find that balance, “doing it all” seems a little less chaotic, and a lot more natural and intuitive.
I want you to really understand that the Universe is guiding us within every moment of everyday and we need to make three conscious choices.
- To listen.
- To trust.
- To act.
Listen to your inner guide, trust it, and act on what you feel.
The Universe will never steer you wrong.
With that being said, I’ve been in creative overdrive for quite a couple of weeks now. My inner guide told me that it’s time for a break, so I listened. I am spending the next 3 days unplugged up in the gorgeous Adirondack Mountains with 11 beautiful souls I get to call my best friends.
Just what the Doctor (Universe) ordered. I can’t wait to come back recharged, refreshed, and ready to continue creating my signature program that I can’t wait to share with you all.
Until next time – XO TS
