Human beings have a finite amount of energy. This energy or “bandwidth” eventually runs out. Great self-care allows us to maximize our bandwidth and poor self-care causes us to crash quicker.
Regardless of how good our self care is…
We only have so much mental bandwidth.
We only have so much physical bandwidth.
We only have so much emotional bandwidth.
When we say yes to something we automatically say no to something else, whether we are conscious of it or not. And every time we say no to something, we open up bandwidth to yes for something else.
Therefore, if we want make changes or create something new in our lives…we need to open up bandwidth for it.
