The weather has been beautiful all week – it feels like summer has come early. I meditated outside in my yard on a blanket a few days this week. It was awesome!
This morning around 6 am, I felt pulled to walk over to our neighbourhood garden, where we planted this year. I sat and watched the sunrise while drinking my coffee.
It’s what my spirit was calling me to do, so I listened to it. It felt amazing!
Then around 9 am, I took my pup for a walk on a nature trail to be with mother nature and God for 40 minutes. It’s what my spirit was calling me to do, so again I listened to it. It felt rejuvenating!
Listening to what your body and mind need gives you more fuel to thrive and enjoy the day with flow and ease. It’s easy to get wrapped up with getting busy with the hustle of the day and put off doing things for yourself. Are you guilty of this?
I for one was guilty of putting off doing things for me first for many years while I was hustling. Not anymore. self-care and self-love come first, and because it does, I’m so much happier!
And here’s the good bit – more productive than ever too.
In a world obsessed with ‘more, more, more,’ perhaps the real ‘more’ that we need is to be more connected to self.
Now more than ever, it’s essential to armour yourself with self-care, whatever that means for you. We are all different in what fuels us and grounds us.
It also helps with stress, which stems from fear; fear causes us to overact and go into reaction.
A clear head, in contrast, helps for better decisions. A clear mind and a happy soul will help us to navigate through these different times and come out winning!
What are you getting the nudge to do today that would lift you?
