Taking A Break From Yourself!

I'm on a yoga retreat this week in Costa Rica.  As a therapist it's so important to take care of your own mental, emotional and spiritual needs.  After all, you want the very best your therapist can give…and therapy is an intensely personal craft that takes care.

This morning I was taking pictures around the property of the spa where our group is staying.  There is an abundance of nature, sounds, scents and energy that I don't often find in Ft. Lauderdale.  In that moment I recognized that I can take a 'break' from myself!  My routine, normal way of going about things, but more importantly my thinking about things.  This week I'm going to challenge myself to see what I can let go of, what no longer serves me.  The only thing we have control over is our own thinking…I extend my challenge to you this week.  No matter what's facing you or what lies ahead, try playing around with your thinking about the problem.  Sometimes a change in perspective and attitude is all we need.  Curious about getting guidance for this task - contact me now via email and I'll share more ideas.
