Knowing that my having a nourishing experience positively impacts the rest of my day is encouraging me to schedule more.
I am becoming increasingly aware that nourishment comes from either the activity itself, my attitude, or both.
- Sometimes the activity can be pleasant, like a warm shower.
- Sometimes, it can be unpleasant, like a tough work-out and the reward comes from completing it.
- Sometimes it is just aligned to my values and knowing that ‘I have done something worth-while.’
In my experience, nourishment can come from pleasure, well-being or purpose. As self-awareness increases (in my case through meditative practice), I can more easily determine what flavour is more appropriate and accessible given my situation.
