What happens when your mind is whirling and you can't sleep? Up at the crack of dawn and time to climb a flipping mountain. I'm climbing metaphorical mountains in my mind, I might as well do it for reals!
I track my resting heart rate to give me an indication of my stress level. When your body doesn't have a chance to recuperate and heal your resting heart rate will be higher. When your resting heart rate starts to drop that's when your body is in the process of recovering and healing on a more regular basis.
Yesterday I had a call regarding the clean-up and sale of my house I've been in since my divorce in 2009. There are a lot of memories in that house that did not meet the expectations and dreams I originally desired.
There is a lot of change that happened in that house. A lot of lessons learned in that house. And now it's time to move on and I find my mind clinging to the idea of the house... and that stress is making my resting heart rate go up.
My heart rate is an indication of not stepping forward and taking care of business that serves my highest good - that helps heal my mind and body. Today I am taking literal steps toward lowering my resting heart rate (and healing) by taking actions that move me and my life forward.
I used all the stress energy to climb farther than I think I've ever been - a 1/4 mile from the trail head. I gained a new perspective of Pinnacle Peak today - a gift that can also be translated into my life. I rocked that shit. Tomorrow I'm going all the way to the end of the trail.
