The power of comfort

Today the children went back to school. Ahhh – time to myself!

I so value having moments absolutely alone in the house. This morning I had to let myself read my book a little, lie in a bath after the gym and just breathe out a bit. It did me the power of good.

After a stressful half-term and the worry about the preparation for my talk, I realise I am in the ‘Comfort’ stage of the Comfort-Nurture-Action scale. This is such a vital stage along the road to meaningful and productive action, I find. If I don’t feel I’ve taken care of myself, really listened to what I need, then I get burnt out, tired and often run around in circles feeling busy but achieving very little.

Never underestimate the power of a bath and a good book!
