About Me

Life happens. Sometimes good and sometimes not so good. This is an exploration of life and all that interests me. I am a therapist working in Norwich, Norfolk, UK. I'm fascinated in the world around me and how people deal with and relate to it. I like to further my knowledge of people, psychology and more. Please join me on my journey.

Push the Pause Button

On my facebook page I posted an image of a big red pause button
It was about forgetting to have down time. I've been guilty of this at times, as much as the rest of the human population! 

With so many different things to do and many demands on our time, some people can feel like  a robot - achieving so very much with one pair of hands. So, to give that another thought, what if there was no you? What if you were ill or unable to do all the things that needed doing? What if because there had been no pauses in your days and weeks it lead to you being so over tired, it eventually resulted in a stress related illness? Not everyone realises how much the body can be affected by long-term stress.

Think what you can do to prevent this to give yourself the best chance of dealing with the challenges in your life? Maybe you could walk away from a task and have a cup of tea, read something uplifting or just look out the window for a while. 

I wonder, when will you next push the pause button?
