Even I don’t practice energetic self-care sometimes. Like last night, for example. I was super tired and yet because I kept waking throughout the night I knew I wasn’t getting a good sleep. Quality sleep for me is pretty critical for my mood, productivity level, patience with my family and overall outlook. Despite being aware of all that I kept pressing through the night giving myself Reiki and falling back asleep, I suppose in the hope of eventually getting the rest I needed. It wasn’t until about 4am that I was finally able to admit to myself that it just wasn’t working out. Not even Reiki was helping me this time.
