Something I have been working through personally lately is learning how to find ‘silence’ and ‘stillness’ in my everyday routine.
Like many of you, I am juggling many balls in the air and from time to time find myself lacking energy or stamina to keep up with work + family + friends.
The difference now is that years ago I would have pushed to burn out, I would have ignored the whispers of my body and those alarm bells.
These days – YES I am still trying to master the ‘Sound of Silence’ and quietening the mind, but I find showing myself some compassion and being more self-aware then I was ever before has really aided my journey till now.
Being self-aware is about honouring your body when she says ‘slow down’, it’s ok to cancel commitments if you don’t have the energy, stamina or time without feeling guilty or obligated and it’s ok to have that sleep in, or that rest on the couch if your body is craving it..
Today try and slow down in every way – Physically, Mentally, Emotionally and Spiritually, take deep breaths, let go of that cycle of negative thoughts and breathe in love for yourself because every negative emotion you feel is temporary and it has an expiry date.
These negative emotions teach you valuable lessons and serve purpose in your life, it helps you grow deeper and strengthens your values but you must let them go in order to learn your life lessons and heal.
Today, let’s do a 3 minute check in with yourself – sit in silence for a few minutes, be still physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually just for a few moments.
Check in with yourself and fill your cup to the brim, watch your beautiful self unfold and become more productive with what your soul purpose is here to fulfil.
