Feeling washed up can be experienced especially following a period of intense activity and hard work. That we might prefer to battle on with current endeavours may say much about our determination, but little concerning our respect for the messages our body is sending out.
Taking notice of the washed up sensation, on the other hand, we allow ourselves to embrace our present being and, hopefully, take action to remedy the situation. Pushing ourselves to the maximum of our potential is one thing, pushing ourselves beyond exhaustion invariably creates issues later on if not immediately.
That each of us knows when we are washed up, as well as our capacity to endure stress, goes without saying. As ever, the individual is naturally creative, resourceful, and whole. This implies we have the ability to manage ourselves. Knowing and doing ideally hand in hand.
Whether washed up but happy, merely washed up or feeling fine and raring to go, let me thank you for being here today.
