A Cliché Worth Remembering

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, welcome back to your Daily Mindfulness. In today's session, we're going to talk about taking care of yourself. So there are a lot of cliches out there that are a bit trite, you know, overused sayings that don't really hold much weight anymore. But here's a cliche that I think is worth remembering and reconnecting to. When your cup is full, you have much more to give.

When your cup is full, you have much more to give. I see a world of people that are very well intentioned, but depleted. They're self-sacrificing themselves. They're trying to take care of other people. Often those who are close to them, their family, partner, friends, community.

Really well intentioned people that are not taking care of themselves. And the reality is, is that if we're not attuning to our own, self-care, if we're not checking in with our needs, from very basic needs like, am I hungry right now? Do I need a nap right now? Do I need to connect with someone? If we're not filling ourself up in that way, we're not going to have the capacity, the bandwidth to continue to show up for other people. We might have the intention to, we might really want to, but our nervous system is just going to pump the brakes. Eventually we'll be depleted. We'll feel more edgy.

We'll feel more angry. We'll feel resentful. So there's a lot to be said for keeping your finger on the pulse of yourself and your own needs in addition to everyone else who's important to you, who you want to serve. What would it look like to fill your cup up in such a way that what you're offering is from a place of fullness, an organic expression of your being rather than running on fumes and just trying to offer the last of what you have? It's, it's a noble endeavor one could argue, but it's often not sustainable. And so this Daily Mindfulness is really an invitation for you to just check in with yourself.

Is your cup full? Are you giving from a full cup? And what do you need to start to replenish yourself so that what you have to give is a more organic and natural expression of what's already here within you? Hopefully the meditation practice will be one step on that journey. And I hope you can also assess this more deeply in your life after our practice is over today. Thank you for your practice. You're doing great. I appreciate your heart and let's settle in for today's meditation.
