112. Oxygen Masks Are Crisis Management Not Wellness
Manage episode 351262456 series 2882323
Oxygen masks are needed in depressurized planes in the midst of a crisis. If you are in crisis- please do start with an oxygen mask. And then acknowledge that this is just the first step.
“Wellness” goes well beyond an oxygen mask.
In this episode, we share many tools to nourish your mind, body spirit, and soul.
Oxygen masks are NOT a strategy for sustainable living. They are NOT a strategy for happiness and health. They are NOT the path to love, purpose, peace, and truly living.
Our minds, bodies, spirits, and souls all need adequate nourishment in order to live a happy, healthy, and whole life.
When we are depleted, our sympathetic nervous systems are on overdrive, and we are reactive, overwhelmed, and unclear.
When we are replete and fully nourished, we can bring our best selves - sustainably.
Full nourishment goes well beyond food. Nervous systems, hearts, and spirits require nourishment and repletion in order to enjoy a life well-lived.
How can you replete yourself?
And full-spectrum living
are all options.
Why is it worth it to nourish yourself fully?
That’s when we grow.
When we are replete as physicians, parents, and humans—and whatever other roles we play.
When we are replete we are able to bring our best to the world.
When we are replete, we are able to solve complicated multifactorial problems and manage the complexities of life in our overstretched world (and medical systems).
When we are replete is when we are able to live and love WELL.
Where in your life do you notice yourself needing to reach for an oxygen mask?
Is there any room for you to go beyond meeting that need and fully nourishing yourself?
