Relax – Replenish

When the well threatens to run dry, it’s time to rest and refill.

By: Hazelden Meditation Series

We can’t always be doing and giving and producing. There comes a time when we run out of steam, and that’s when we need to know how to replenish our supply of energy and enthusiasm.

Some of us get recharged by being with other people. Some of us need to be quiet and alone. All of us can profit from an inspirational uplift, whether it comes from music, something we read, a conversation with a friend, savoring the beauty of nature, or a period of meditation.

Vacations can be wonderful, but we’re not always able to take them when we need them. What we can do is learn how to create for ourselves islands of recreation — re-creation — which may be inserted into our busy, everyday schedule. We can learn to stop and refill the well before it runs dry, so we do not drive ourselves into the kind of exhaustion that threatens recovery.

I will build an island of re-creation into today’s schedule.
