First, I must apologise for not blogging for a couple of weeks. I have just completed the three most busiest weeks I have had as a Practitioner.
Interestingly, this leads me on to today’s post. During the last 3 weeks I have been working between 10 and 12 hours per day for 5 to 7 days a week plus studying on top. Whilst this is good in the short-term for my practise, it will not necessarily be good for my health or my clients. This situation if I were to allow it to continue would lead to a decrease in my vitality and leave me with less energy to devote to my clients and my social time. It would also lead to a reduction in my immune system and increase the likelihood of illness.
A lack of rest, a lack of sleep and a lack of downtime is a failure to listen to your Dr Quiet. Dr Quiet is one of your four internal Doctors whom you should always be in communication with, receiving feedback on your wellbeing, health and lifestyle choices. You can find out more about Dr Quiet and the other three Doctors in Paul Chek’s e-book entitled “The Last 4 Doctors You’ll Ever Need“.
So beginning next week, after I have taught my “Understanding the Core” Workshop this weekend, I will be following these steps to ensure I am taking the advice of my Dr Quiet:
- Working no more than 6 contact hours per day with clients
- Ensuring I am in bed by 10pm each evening
- Taking at least 10 minutes each day to lie down and focus on my breath.
What will you do to take care of your Dr Quiet? Answers on a post card.
