It’s About Pacing Yourself Over Time

Nature paces itself as it moves through the seasons.  Pacing yourself over time, you to move with greater ease through shifts, challenges, stressful situations, and transitions. The cycles of life can be looked at through the lens of where you are today, and more importantly where you have traveled over time. Pacing yourself over time happens one moment, hour, day, week, month, season and year at a time.

It is true that the patterns that show up in your life today related to your attitudes, beliefs, and perception of interaction with the world have taken years to develop. They have evolved and changed. These patterns affect how you plan, meet obstacles, experience joy, acknowledge reward and seeming failures. 

To acknowledge that it is possible to create positive change over time includes working with the present moment. With each new insight and awareness, you choose the capacity to move towards life-enhancing choices in your life. The journey begins with starting in the present and building new neural pathways, beliefs, and habits over time: one moment, hour, day, week, month, season and year at a time.

Moment by Moment

A simple way to connect to the moment is to get in touch with your breath, breathing in and out through your nose. By getting in touch with your in-breath and out-breath with its calming effects, your nervous system creates nurture and support for being better able to be present in the moment. This creates a greater ability to focus, listen, and process what is happening in front of you.

If you are feeling anxious or disoriented, you can also add contact to the middle of your chest at Conception Vessel 17 area to reinforce the connection between all the organ systems of your body to enhance communication and life energy flow to transform your mood and awareness of where you are in the present.

Adopt the pace of nature. Her secret is patience. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Hour by Hour
  1. Meditate, read, take brief rests or walks. Pause during the day to look out the window if you are in an indoor workspace. Look at ways to bring a 10-15 minute rest period into your schedule daily. Research has shown that taking a break to read for as little as 6 minutes creates a greater sense of calm.
  2. Make time to stretch and to wind down. Take your time, reduce stimulation, and spend time with others in pleasurable ways. Express gratitude. Nourish your body with whole foods, water,  and sunlight. Take some quiet time to rejuvenate in the midst of a busy day.
  3. Break your work into sizable parts. Prioritize and delegate.
Day by Day

Building in time for work, play and self-care is important to create harmony and balance in your life. In order to take care of yourself, make space for self-reflection, gratitude, and centering. By doing so, you energize your intentions, restore your energy, and pace yourself instead of burning yourself out.

There are many ways to create possibilities for these options in your day, if only for a few moments.

  1. Meditate before getting out of bed or going to sleep.
  2.  Before going to sleep it is important to transition from the business of the day. Sometimes, you might still have a challenge on your mind before sleeping. In order to truly rest, it’s important to move to get out of the fast-pace zone. While there are many ways to fall asleep, building mindfulness into your sleep routine is beneficial to allow your body-mind system to detox and rejuvenate overnight.
  3.  Some people get into the gratitude zone with reflection from the day. This can be done with gratitude for what you did, created, or avoided during the day. With this, you can also bring in what you feel grateful for in regards to others during the day including a smile, a gesture or compliment. And lastly, you can express regret for the day. This allows you to really put down the worry, anxiety, and tension you carry during the day. When there is an issue involving a decision, you can also offer a question before sleep while acknowledging that you cannot solve the issue. By letting go, ask for a solution you have not thought of yet, and include in your request a solution for the highest and best. This allows your body-mind system to connect to the calm reservoir of wisdom from your higher self. As your body is detoxing from the previous day, your Gall Bladder Official (Decision-Making Official) is cleansing and renewing for a new perspective in the morning!
  4. Mindful Exercise:  Exercise creates positive mood-altering neurotransmitters and promotes a sense of well-being. Finding ways to enhance your sense of well-being and health happens when you set up a routine that works for you and pace yourself in the process.

Month by Month

Taking care of monthly bills and commitments is part of life. However, it’s also important to know that you are affected by personal, natural and cultural cycles. These include anniversaries, holidays, and deadlines. Your health is also affected by the natural cycles of the moon. Learn more here.

Season by Season

Each season has its own qualities in sync with nature. In order to access nature’s rhythm, use the wisdom of the Chinese Five Elements in your life.  

Summer: Be sure to spend time with others in ways that nourish your heart. Enjoy your connections through laughter, hugging, playing and joyful expression.

Late Summer: Find ways to be in touch with centering yourself. Be at home within. Find movement practices that ground your energy and increase your well-being like Tai Chi or Qi Gong. Express gratitude. Look at what you are harvesting in your life. Remember to balance giving and receiving.

Fall: Become aware of what inspires you. Look at your values, and how you are living these values in your life. Nurture self-acceptance and expand your spiritual practices so that they allow you to let go of that which is no longer necessary. Remember to breathe.

Winter: Tune into that which allows you to pace yourself while you persevere. Rest, dream and listen to your inner vision for life and to others. Examine where you are needing support for meeting obstacles and going with the flow of life.

Spring: Look at your vision of life. Consider what you need to bring into the light so that you can create intentions free of frustration and energy that cuts you off from the light, optimism, and hope. Detoxify your body-mind system for greater life-enhancing energy.

Year by Year

Looking at nature, you notice what happens as time passes. Seeds become sprouts. Sprouts become flowers. Flowers become fruit. Their seeds are dispersed and become dormant through winter creating new growth.  Small tree plantings become forests. As the years progress it is important to look at what has been seeded in your life, and what course this has created for you.
