We all have an inner guidance system that notifies us when we need to take some time to relax or care for ourselves. Following are some examples of times when your body might be nagging you to give it a break.
You make thousands of decisions everyday. You decide what time to get up, what you’ll eat for breakfast, how you will make that breakfast, what dish you will put it on, what you’ll say to your loved ones as they wake up, what you’ll wear, how much shampoo you’ll use, and that’s all within the first few minutes of being awake! Clearly, we all know how to make decisions, but it’s the bigger decisions that get us hung up. Sometimes we can go years struggling over a decision. We are so afraid of making a mistake that it can seem easier to not even choose what to do.
It’s part of the human condition that we want to always improve things, be happy, and make the most of our lives. It’s a good thing to want to review what has happened and plan ahead. This is why we go there, not because we are control freaks or stupid, but because we want to make our lives better.
Is it time that you had a break? The Four of Swords is a sign that you need to slow down and rest. Taking time out can be a challenge sometimes but it is essential. You need to recharge and reenergise.
