I wanted to share a little bit more on today's podcast about the idea that sometimes life gets incredibly hectic, whether it's from external sources, sometimes it's things going on in our lives. And sometimes it's just whatever is happening in the season. It's very important that we stop and take a break, take a pause in order to maintain our mental health, our physical health, as well as the rest of our well being. It's necessary for maintaining our ability to continue on a path of feeling good, being productive, being able to produce creatively or constructively in our life, being consciously and lovingly connected to our family. And in order to be constantly and lovingly connected to our family, and throughout our life's work, it always seems like these very full weeks happen in the fall, especially as holidays, approach, life and everything else just gets busy. And whether it's being an entrepreneur, or a business owner, wrapping up taxes around October 15, which some of us do, are working on taking an online education class, building out your business, or incorporating a new routine for fitness, nutrition, and wellness, whether it's doing any one of those things, it demands a lot of your time. But there are creative ways to fit it all in, give yourself grace, take a breather, and be able to have the life that you love with everything that you love in it. It's so important that we take a moment to reconnect with ourselves. (On the blog you can see what my view looked like...)This is what mine looks like is a view from one of my favorite beaches. And sometimes ironically, I use the beach as my office. I know that might seem pretty unconventional, but because we're all in the land of the pandemic, and we're all doing business a little bit differently. I had my morning call with a colleague here and went for a morning walk. I did my writing and journaling and my meditation and prayer. And then I had another phone call talked with Hubby, we changed some of our plans for work. And then we also making it my office, I did a couple of work calls. We talked about also our plans for the weekend. And we planned a date night. So it's incredible what you can fit in when you're a little creative with figuring out how to do life a little differently. It's so important that we also make the space to take that time for one another as part of our relationship, part of our family. And you'll see that even in busy seasons like the fall or as we head into the holidays, it's just important that you take that time and sometimes you simply put yourself first so that you have the time to feel reinvigorated, inspired and able to share and connect and reflect and give from a cup that's full. I worked with a coach many years ago. And she made a great illustration of reminding me that we simply can't share with others from a cup that's empty. She said it's so important that we fill up our own cup to the point where it's overflowing, so that when we share, we create a sharing energy from the overflow. And we're able to give generously in that way. So here's a list of I started with five ways and then it became 10 ways. And really, it's about a dozen ways that you can take a break, reconnect with yourself, fill up your own resources and feel good. So we'll call it a dozen ways that you can feel good, taking a break and reconnect with yourself. Number 1. A long walk in one of your favorite places. It could be anywhere somewhere that you take a little time off and go to or just somewhere around your neighborhood. But take a long walk deep breaths, swing your arms and get some movement in it will give you the opportunity to reset and get back to being your best self. Number 2. A scheduled call with an old friend. I did a call recently with an old friend and we just had so many memories talking about the days of her wedding, having travelled in different places, getting to share family stories and laughs and all the things we're going through now even the challenges of life up and down. It really was just a moment of pause and it gave me that energy to feel revitalized and to keep going. Number 3. A long bath or shower. Maybe this is my cancer self showing. I was born in July and I love being in the water. There's something about it that is just so soothing, whether it's soaking in a tub or being in a shower, the beautiful sense all the things that are subtle indulgences. It's such a great way to just take a pause and reset. Number 4. An indulgent night of deep sleep. Whether you're setting the tone with some aromatherapy, a spritz of lavender, or you have candles burning, and don't forget to turn them off before you get into bed. But just setting the tone, putting the most luxurious sheets on your bed, creating the lighting in your space that just says calm and setting everything so that it's just relaxing. And a place where you can settle in allowing yourself to get into bed a little bit earlier than usual. And just having the time to tuck away all of your devices. And really just enjoy being in that wonderful space and settling into sleep. Number 5 is finding a book you love. And maybe it's when you take into bed so that you can settle into that luxurious sleep. Number 6. One of your favorite movies, it always gives us good vibes and brings in some laughter and joy to have some moments of just enjoying something fun that takes us away a little escapism is always a good thing. Number 7. An afternoon on the water. Again, I think it's a little bit of my cancer self showing up. But I know that getting out in the water maybe on my kayak or in a boat with friends. It's just such a good way to get myself back attune to what really matters. Even just being there, putting my feet in the sand and having the waves lap over my legs. It just seems to be a place where it brings on a reset, it reminds me that there's more than this. And it brings about a sense of calm. Number 8. Taking your office outside. This is one of my regular getaway is to kind of maintain a little sanity, a lot of the work I do I spend a lot of the time on the computer and on the phone. And so sometimes just getting out of your office and taking your office on the road, wherever it may be if you have a favorite local place. Because even in the pandemic, there's places you can find that will work. And so I often go to the beach, and I have a couple of places that I love to use. It's quiet, I can do calls, I can actually get a lot done sometimes more than when I'm in the office space. And it's a great way to recharge and keep getting things done so that I stay on track the rest of the day. Number 9. Meditation and prayer. It doesn't matter where you are or at what time in your day. Oftentimes just a minute or two of meditation and prayer whether it's in the morning or in the evening, or maybe there's just a moment of pause in the middle of the day. It helps to reset it helps to change your vibration and helps to change your energy and sometimes just giving up the energy letting go and maybe giving up isn't the exact wording but it's offering up that energy. I remember something that my mom used to say about offering it up. But letting go and just putting the energy out there and trusting that what you need will come to you and that you're in the right place on the right path. It all brings it together. Number 10 This is one of my favorites. Do nothing. "Dolce far niente" as they say in Italian, My family's Italian so I know this one well and there is just a fine art to doing nothing. Whether it's taking a day in the middle of the week and giving yourself a little bit of time and grace or maybe on the weekend and indulgent morning of sleeping in having exactly what you love. And just being with the person you love. Finding the space for doing absolutely nothing is such a beautiful thing and being in a quiet meditative space with your own thoughts. Not really planning anything but just being able to be there and be present be still either alone or with one another. It's such a beautiful thing and it's one of my really truly favorite ways to incorporate the best parts of life in. Number 11. Enjoy your favorite drink and just unplug your phone. Put it on Do Not Disturb and enjoy 30 minutes of unadulterated me time. Whether it is your coffee, your green juice or a glass of wine at the end of the day. It's really a perfect way to indulge. Number 12. Sitting in the sunshine and unabashedly soaking it all in. A few more bonus... taking yourself for a beautiful meal. It can be simple or it can be complicated, something delicious that you love. Create this space Half the way and it'll all come, you'll find that incorporating these things into your life, it really does make a difference in resetting and restoring and reinvigorating each day, whether you're resting or on the run, be decadent. And do you time, be in the feminine make space to receive. There's a deep knowing that when we're out of alignment in our spirit, mind and body, giving yourself the gift of pause, grounding and focusing on what you do. Love brings you the joy that you need. And it returns you back to being in a place where everything connects hope you'll enjoy these concepts and these ideas and put them into action. And we hope you all have a beautifully curated day.
