“Learning to soften is a practice.”
I’ve spent the past 11 days in #radicalrest.
What does my radical rest look like?
It has looked like relaxing & softening.
During this time, I’ve:
done less work/labor practice deep breathing went on solo dates exercised listened to cicadas at night so much more (than I care to share in these internet streets)
Learning to soften, especially as a Black femme has been a sweet practice.
This practice has calmed my nerves and helped me to see myself outside of what I do (my productivity & work)
What does your radical rest practice look like? What does it mean to soften?
