I just finished my workout. The instructor mentioned her motivation in life right now is to protect her energy. Protect your energy. What does that mean?

My first thought is I don’t have energy to do everything so I need to protect it, use it wisely. Protecting my energy means I say no. I say no even when the invitation looks good. I say no even when someone else wants me to say yes, might even be pressuring me to say yes. I say no to protect my energy.

Protecting my energy means I pause when I feel angry, nervous, anxious, stressed out or alone.

My second thought is I don’t have to keep moving until I am depleted. The instructor said it like this, “Protecting your energy means hitting pause.”

That’s what I said!

Why are we so afraid to pause? For me, I am afraid I will miss an opportunity or I might lose my place — whatever that means! Somehow, I attach value to always being busy, available or occupied.

I need to pause. You need to pause. Our culture needs to pause.

This is what Jesus said . . .

. . . “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

Mathtew 11:28-30
