Let’s be honest when you’re not feeling like your best self, it really sucks. And maybe you’re not feeling your best self because you’re overwhelmed at home or stressed about your workload. Perhaps your sleep has suffered, or your partner has mentioned you seem more irritable lately. These are some telltale signs that our brain is trying to connect with our body to tell us to slow down and get some support. Often times we ignore these warning signs that things aren’t going well or that we aren’t feeling like our best selves.
We’re all guilty of getting to that point of exhaustion, burnout, and fatigue before we recognize that we need to change. When we don’t feel like the best version of ourselves, when we are disconnected from our minds and running our bodies on high stress, we need the support to slow down, reconnect and take care of ourselves. It would be unrealistic to ask a car to drive without gas, so why do we ask ourselves to keep going and moving without the proper fuel?
In the midst of life's hustle and bustle, it's easy to disregard the signals our minds and bodies send us, telling us to slow down and seek support. We've all been there—pushing ourselves to the brink of exhaustion before realizing we're not functioning at our best. Remember you're not alone and Shift Collab has a team of therapists ready to support you, whenever the time feels right.
