We usually don't make the best decisions when we're exhausted. But, in hurried the pace of today's world, we sometimes keep pushing forward before we recognize the signs that we're tired at all.

In this episode of the Magical Mindset Moments Podcast, we'll explore 5 signs that we need rest... 

  1. You have the thought "It's all up to me."
  2. You're experiencing feelings of superiority over others.
  3. You feel isolated, disconnected, or lonely.
  4. Everything you touch breaks and you're leaving chaos in your wake.
  5. You find yourself trying to take shortcuts.

But - don't worry! - we won't simply leave you with a missive of "just rest more".

Jen will also give us some practical, tactical ways we can weave a self-care practice of rest into our everyday lives - and get our kids in on this helpful practice so we can help them adopt lifelong healthy habits too.

As we wrap up Season 1 with this important lesson, we also want to take a moment to say thank you for listening.

We are so grateful to you for being on this journey with us. During our holiday break, we hope you'll stay connected with us by joining our email list using the form at the bottom of this page or following Magical Mindset Moments on Instagram.

Happy holidays! We hope your season is one of peace and joy. We will see you in the new year!
