Weekend Wisdom: The next time things get hard, or you don’t feel well, instead of pushing through, rest through instead.
October is the month I spend more time offline and outside than any other month. I’m disconnecting for better connection to myself, my work, my family and to you. I love sharing weekend favs and writing other articles (and books) for you. I hope you enjoy these favorite weekend favorites. They are the best of the best from the whole year.

Today’s Instagram favorite is from me with my most popular Instagram post in the last year. Just because you have time or availability for something doesn’t mean you are obligated to say yes. You are the only one who can protect your time.
Don’t create space so you can do more things (especially things you have no interest in). Create space for more life, for more being you.
I hope you enjoy this edition of Weekend Favorites and have a lovely, restorative, gentle weekend.
