One of the hardest things for me to do, and I've noticed this for a lot of women, is to take the time for actual resting. Not resting on your butt watching television, not laying in bed working on your to-do list... actual, mindful, peace giving, nothing-doing rest.
It's one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves and one of our biggest challenges. For me, personally, if I'm not doing something that I deem "useful", I feel like I'm wasting time... which leads to guilt. I feel guilty for taking a nap, for soaking in the tub for an hour, for sitting out on the patio just watching the birds fly by. It's been so deeply embedded in to my psyche throughout my life that I can no longer find the root cause of this guilt, but I acknowledge that it creeps up, unwanted, when I'm taking some soulful me time.
I'm trying to be more mindful of my rest habits, or rather lack thereof, and take at least a few minutes to really and truly rest. And when the guilt comes on, don't marinate in it or try to define it, but rather acknowledge it and send it on it's way.
