These notes of encouragement aren’t just for introverts.
Introverts may need more quiet time, more alone time, or room to create a happy heart, but extroverts need some heart soothing too. Instead of working to the point of burn-out, build time each day to be still, quiet and thoughtful.
Whether you are a natural introvert like me, or more extroverted but don’t feel like people-ing today, I hope these notes will make you smile and feel less alone for craving alone time.
8 Notes of Encouragement for Introverts (and people who don’t feel like people-ing)
If you need a holiday to take a day off, here it is. If you need more time for reading books, consider a day off from the internet too. Thanks to @becomingunbusy for this gem.
This works every time. Say no when you feel overwhelmed or exhausted. When you feel better, keep saying no so you can break the cycle of burn-out/recover. You are allowed to protect your time and energy.
I adore spending time with people I love but the only way I can really show up for them, engage, and connect is by spending time alone. You too?
I can so relate to this @letterfolk image.
This is the truest truth.
This image from @purpleclvr reminded me that my favorite weekend plans are no weekend plans. And let it be encouragement for all of us that we don’t have to explain or apologize for doing nothing. We deserve guilt-free introverting.
Thanks for the reminder @introvertdear. Your prescription: Take care of you.
Whether you are an introvert or extrovert or a little of each, you can likely benefit from some time to yourself. Giving yourself the time you need to rest and reset isn’t only good for you but for everyone around you too.
