The Power of Less

I've been struggling lately.

There's been a lot going on in my personal life over the past few months, and I thought I was handling it just fine.

But now that things are starting to calm down a bit, my body's saying, “No, stop. I need a break.” Although luckily my physical energy and my body are okay, I feel mentally and emotionally exhausted.

So, to cope with it all, I've doubled down even more on making sure that I get proper sleep and that I eat as well as possible. I’m meditating more often, journaling, going on walks in nature daily, and moving my body daily, but it still doesn't seem to work.

Times like these are when I need to remember that doing more is not the answer. At least not in this situation. Doing less is what I need.

You might've noticed that I've been posting a bit less. I've been on social media less. I've been trying to say “no” as much as possible and lessening my load each week.

The guilt has been eating away at me. There are so many exciting things I'm working on behind the scenes to help even more people with POTS and Long Covid. So it's been difficult to step away from it and do less.

But in the grand scheme of things, I can either do less now, so I can have energy for more things down the road, or be stubborn and push myself at the same rate on the road to burnout.

I think there's a clear answer.

How about you? How has doing less benefited you?
