Live your life with abandon….
It’s been a difficult few months for most people with the uncertainty of the pandemic. You might feel like your emotions are on high alert. You also might be feeling a bit lost not having a regular schedule and routine in place.
If you are feeling this way, I encourage you to shift your mindset and think about what you can do as opposed to what you can’t do. Live your life with abandon, enjoy everyday to it’s fullest.
We all know that self care is an important aspect of staying healthy, I wanted to remind you what that could look like for you given today’s circumstances.
Join me in a journey through self care.
Eat well – nourish your body, it will nourish your mind!
“Eating healthy food fills your body with energy and nutrients. Imagine your cells smiling back at you and saying: “Thank you!” ~ Karen Salmansohn
Celebrate your accomplishments – give yourself a pat on the back, you are doing a great job!
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Be grateful – remember to be thankful for all that you have!
“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~Melody Beattie
Embrace your inner child – get out and play… have some fun!
“We nurture our creativity when we release our inner child. Let it run and roam free. It will take you on a brighter journey.” ~ Serina Hartwell
Create a space you love – make yourself a happy place where you love to be!
“Keep your thoughts on where your happy place is and you will get in a calm and relaxed state, allowing you to return refreshed and renewed. “ ~ Sayed Ahmed
Enjoy a book – lose yourself in a story about inspiration!
“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” ~ Charles W. Eliot
Move your body – it will thank you in ways you never knew possible!
“In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.” ~ Deepak Chopra
Disconnect from technology – escape from outside influences!
“Quiet the mind, and the soul will speak.” ~ Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati
Be creative – do something you love!
“Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the ‘creative bug’ is just a wee voice telling you, ‘I’d like my crayons back, please.” ~ Hugh MacLeod
Don’t forget to stop and enjoy everything around you by using self care strategies to refocus, reenergize, renew and remind yourself to live a profound life.
