Making space for reflection
As I look forward to taking a week-long vacation later this month, I am reminded of the importance of pacing in any of the work we do. Recovery may be a full time job, but like any job, it’s necessary to take breaks. The trick is knowing when we need to rest and for how long, mindful that it doesn’t turn into avoidance. One of the most important things about vacation is that it allows us time to return and see things from a fresh perspective. Meaningful changes happen when we allow ourselves the time and space for reflection.
Where do I hope to be in five years?
What about this time next year?
How do I want to feel?
What is my recovery mission?
All you have to know is the desired destination. We’ll help you with the journey.
We are offering a number of programs leading up to the summer:
- Our monthly Maintaining Health program is this coming Friday (not our usual Thursday).
- We still have spots in Overcoming Trauma: Your Past is not your future, starting later this month.
Give us a call so we can help you get to where you want to be.
