    This column really resonated with me. Whew.

    By nature, I’m a workaholic. I love being productive. But I often feel trapped in a body that doesn’t allow me to work at the pace I want. It stresses me out. I become frustrated with myself. Eventually, I come to terms with it. Then I finally take some time to rest.

    It’s a vicious circle for sure, and since the pandemic began I’ve been working more to keep my mind distracted. As a result, I put rest on the back burner. So, I’m still trying to find a balance myself. But I think it starts with simply listening to your body and honoring it when it tells you it’s time to rest.

    Oof, I feel that so much. The cycle is real. But achieving balance definitely takes time – it’s a lifelong journey!
