Best of Our Blogs: August 10, 2018

How much of your day is spent simply being versus doing?

I didn’t realize so much of my busy-ness was tied to my self-worth. If I wasn’t publishing something or working on a project, what was my value here on earth?

Doing nothing, come to find out, is hard work. Sitting in silence forced me to confront those voices of insecurity, self-doubt, and criticism. Keeping busy prevented me from addressing these concerns. But when I had the courage to be still, I grew more self-awareness, self-love and compassion.

Everybody needs a balance of being and doing.

As you read our top posts this week, remember to schedule downtime. See if it brings you a greater sense of well-being.
