Hey Beautiful Souls!
It’s so easy to go on automatic these days, zipping through our days, hours, weeks, etc… That we often don’t even notice so many things going on in our lives,bodies, relationships etc..
Something that will help in the shifting of that to being mindful and on purpose is to Notice… Notice what lights you up, what makes you mad, what makes you feel good and what makes you feel not so good (activities, people, food etc..) Notice the messages that life is constantly giving you.
Some ways to starting Noticing more mindfully are:
-Gather words, images, ideas etc and put them in a journal
-Start a pinterest board or 20
-Grab a journal (or a document on your phone/computer) and start capturing some of these things that you notice.
-Slow down long enough to check in with yourself, with your mind and body notice what the message may be
-Use your camera (any camera including phone cameras) to take notice of the inspiration and things around you.
Take Notice of:
-Notice what words you are always drawn to
-Notice what things you hear that you think oooh that would be amazing or I would love to..
-Notice what foods make you feel good, nourished really fed and on the flip side notice the ones that make you feel heavy, yucky, guilty etc.
-Notice what people make you feel lifted up, good, comforted, listened to, empowered – Notice what people make you feel frustrated, annoyed, drained, badly
-Notice where the disconnect between what you say you want and the actions you take (or don’t take) are.
-Notice what inspires you
-Noitce what makes you laugh
-What makes you mad
Notice how amazing life is in so many ways, even through the challenges
For me lately I have been noticing more and more things including: A shift (this one is hard to explain but I can totally feel it, in a good way!), I notice how my body is used to having a certain (at least) amount of water and when I neglect to do that for a few days I can feel it, I notice how I am not feeling as great lately as I would like, I notice more moments of bravery, I notice lingering issues from things I thought I had moved on from, I notice that I am constantly drawn to certain images (Including, meditation, Buddha, flowers) I notice that I am coming up with more and more ideas and am tired of just sitting on them, I notice the books I have been reading lately that I am really soaking bits of them in..
Those are some of mine, what do you notice?
Here is to living Inspired, Creative and Empowered
