Mother Nature is saying, it’s time to slow down.
I’m finding slowing down, living mindfully, and being gentle with myself to be rewarding and centering… I also find myself feeling a little lost. I’m not sure why but I feel really busy so focusing on slowing down in an intentional way is very important for me.
I thought I would share with you a few of my tricks to finding grace and gratitude in a time of such uncertainty.
Ayruvedic lifestyle: I’m taking this exploration slow because a lot of it is a bit over my head but I find this website helpful because they have YouTubes on how to use products and the theory behind it.
Aromatherapy: Create a home environment that is beneficial to your health and mood. Here is some additional information.
Walk with friends: I walk miles and miles with my friends (six feet apart obviously). This is a time to process what is happening with our world and with our lives. Not only healthy for the body but for the soul.
Outdoor Bootcamp: The gym is closed but that doesn’t mean that you can’t lift weights and do squats down the sidewalk! Why not entertain and motivate your neighbors while you remain strong and fit.
Zoom & Face Time: For those of us who were 10 in the 70’s we knew zoom as a classic kids show but now it is connecting us in a whole new way. It’s been an amazing way to not only stay in touch with my college friends around the country but also I’m able to work with clients and show them my screen while I’m drawing their homes. Connection via. Wifi, it’s better than nothing!
Yoga & Meditation: I think we can all agree that taking a minute to reflect can really work wonders in a time like this.
Remember to take care of yourself! This is such an incredibly strange time, make yourself a priority even if it means that you are hiding in a closet, walking six feet apart or connecting virtually.
