Many of us declare over and over again that we will take the time necessary to nurture and honour our bodies. However, we cease to validate the importance of our well-being throughout the course of the day. Manifesting simple life changes, such as enhancing one’s health through sleep, exercise, meditation and proper nutrition are important steps in promoting a balanced lifestyle.
What would it take to fill your cup? To nurture your body, mind & soul? All we are guaranteed is the current moment, so why do we most often delay our happiness? There are many ongoing psychological and spiritual reasons why we postpone our bliss. By starting with baby steps through moderation, we can live our lives according to our authentic self. I have discovered strategies that will allow you to cope with the demands placed upon you by the ‘fast-paced’ world we live in. Take the opportunity to focus on your personal desires and give to yourself as though you were giving to another; fill your cup first. Create a space in your home that you can use for meditation, yoga or peaceful musical indulgence. Or go for relaxing walks, taking photographs of your favourite places and you will be able to inspire your creativity by surrounding yourself with all that Gaia has to offer.
Nature has a gentle way of comforting our souls, bringing us back to the serenity of our inner bliss. I love treating myself to a bouquet of beautiful flowers that indulges my senses and I use therapeutic natural essential oils to help give me great peace of mind. Make a conscious decision to take a little personal time to pamper yourself, allowing an expression of celebration to echo and self-care through your life. Namaste–Christine
