empathy boost

What do you do when you’re sick? Power through and push on? When your body sends a message that rest is needed, how can you take a break without feeling guilty?

While feeling under the weather, your empathy (towards yourself) could get a temporary boost. That is, if you are willing to accept that, you are forced to take it slow.

On the other hand, unwillingness to accept the fact you have to take it easy makes things a lot worse. Frustration isn’t exactly going the make your todos disappear. Agitation won’t help you heal faster.

Choose the smart option. Use the temporary empathy boost to tune into your feelings. Create (mental) clarity, and leverage it when you feel all better.
