There are many categories for the things we do: hobbies, jobs, side hustles, sports, activities. But I think there should be another category: restorations.
We should take time to develop the things that we know restore us. We should have tools ready and available for when times are difficult, for situations when we may only have a minute or two to reset.
And just as the great athlete draws upon years of practice in an important game, we must draw upon our restoration to reset at critical moments. A breath or meditation practice is all for the moment of mindfulness or presence of one full breath. The practice needs to be every day for the single moment of difficulty.
Cultivate your restorations.
