"What if we recharged ourselves as often as we recharge our phones?"

Research shows that in 2017 alone, Americans forfeited 212 million vacation days, which is the equivalent of $62.2 billion in lost benefits. 

If unused time off isn’t enough to convince you, stress can lead to depression, anxiety, burnout, and more serious health problems.

Practicing self-care isn’t always easy. Most of us have stressful jobs or are too consumed with familial obligations and feel drained. Me-time is usually last on the agenda. 

Some questions we ask: 

  1. When was the last time you got a massage? (7:00) 
  2. Remember the activities that brought you joy and excitement as a child? (8:00) 
  3. Have you taken the time to unplug, reflect and pinpoint your stressors that trigger anxiety? (10:00)
  4. Which people bring you joy and boost your mental health? (12:00)
  5. When was the last time you picked up the phone and had a meaningful conversation with a friend? (13:00)
  6. Do you end your day off from your responsibilities by practicing gratitude? (14:00)

In this episode, we dissect the physical, mental and spiritual ways you can treat yourself to some rest and relaxation without having to hop on a plane to escape. 

Whether it’s discovering Airplane mode on your phone, taking a long walk or devouring your favorite meal, a day off can do wonders. 

What if you recharged yourself as much as you did your phone? 

Take a reset day to yourself..for yourself. You will bounce back rejuvenated with a renewed sense of balance.

"There is no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs." Staying Uncomfortable is the result of my mind trying to make sense of life, people, and the world around me. The fickle nature of life has made me realize the importance of being in the present moment, and that life is all about enjoying these little moments. As I embark upon this journey of spirituality and a growth mindset, I invite you along with us, to share your perspectives, and to challenge ours. Lots of love, and gratitude for being here with us.
