We must listen to our body + spirit when it is giving us signs to slow down. It is not possible to do EVERYTHING at once.

They step away from some things to provide the space to focus on certain things and heal. Maybe the space means reducing where your energy goes and focusing on a smaller amount of things.

Don’t allow yourself to deplete your energy resources without replenishing it. Don’t ignore yourself, Warrior.
