Free things you can do today to improve your days…Friday 5

Hey Lovely Souls…

This week I wanted to share 5 Free things you can do today to improve your days…

1)      Meditate (there are a ton of free meditations out there, I happen to really love an app called insight timer it has hundreds of free meditations. YouTube is another great tool) Start with 1-5 minutes.

2)      Listen to an inspiring Podcast. (or song or audiobook) You can multitask while doing this.. on your commute, going for a walk, straightening up your space, even oftentimes at work!

3)      Choose a book or magazine that you want to dig into, not one you should (and shoulds come in all different sizes…) but one that you really want to) Set aside 10-20  minutes a day to read some of it.

4)      Have a little plan.  I am not suggesting that you plan every hour. What I am encouraging, however, is that you use a planner or digital system to schedule a few things that need to be done and that matter to you.  I love having a paper and pen planner. I start out planning my week. If that’s not your thing then start with planning /setting intentions and your most important tasks for that day. It helps you feel like you do have a say in how your days will unfold. But I will suggest being open about shifts in your plan sometimes…

5)      Ask yourself, what do I most need today? And try and give that to yourself. I feel like oftentimes it’s simple things like a deep breath, a nourishing meal, laughter or even just a few minutes of stillness.

Centered in Connection – My offering to you (free eCourse)

Hey Beautiful people!

I wanted to invite you to a free (all on Facebook) offering I am doing for at least the next two months. I created what I felt I most needed this season. It’s been a really hard year and I was craving and needing the exact things I am offering in this course. So we are in it together!

We will explore:

  • Touchstones (those items, practices, words that keep us centered and coming back to ourselves)
  • Self-Care (we will make it easy and doable)
  • Creating space for what matters
  • And more…

Contact me via this page linked here so I can email you the link to join the group. 

Or leave a comment with your email.

I look forward to connecting with you!

Things to ponder before the end of the year…. Friday 5

Hey Inspiring Souls, Today I wanted to share 5 Things to ponder before the end of this year (a scary fact… it’s 72 days before the end of the year… what the…. ???!!

With the loss of my Dad this year, my goals and visions have shifted, I am still figuring out what that looks like. But a lot of what felt like it mattered at the start of the year just did feel right any longer… But I also know for me it best supports me to have some ideas, inspirations, and goals in mind or I will just allow time to pass me by.

  1. What needs to be released (this could be obligations, limiting beliefs or stuff)
  2. What needs your attention right now? Not the should, but what is really tugging at you for attention?
  3. What feels like it really matters to you right now? What conversations need to be had, connections made, what needs to be created, forgiven? Those are the things that we would be best served to lean into.
  4. How can you best support yourself in this journey for the remainder of the year?
  5. What does/would feel most like truth right now for you?

When your heart is hurting….

Hey Beautiful Soul,

Between natural disasters and mass shootings the world can feel like it’s falling apart. I want to encourage you to take time to allow yourself to be, to feel, to cry to show up and be held or to hold.

Nourish yourself, look others in the eyes, hug those you love a little tighter. Use your journal as your way to express what it is that is hurting, what goodness you see despite all the hurt. Allow yourself to show up as you are. Seek support where you need it. Breathe.

Some quotes that I hope will bring a little comfort to your aching heart.

“Tears shed for another person are not a sign of weakness. They are a sign of a pure heart.”
― José N. Harris, MI VIDA: A Story of Faith, Hope and Love

“There is a saying in Tibetan, ‘Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength.’
No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, that’s our real disaster.”
― Dalai Lama XIV

Ways to connect- Friday 5

Hey Lovely Soul,

Connecting is something that really matters to me. However, as with many of us, it’s easy to get caught up in the gotta do and should do and lose sight of what we need or what matters right now.

Here are 5 ways to connect (this weekend or anytime)

  1. Connect with Beauty. Buy some flowers, go outside and seek out something beautiful(tip, start looking at details instead of the overwhelm of everything in your view!)
  2. Connect with yourself. Allow yourself to just be still for even 5 minutes ( I know this can feel like hours if you’re not used to it. I love to find stillness in child’s pose) Journal, put your hand on your heart and one on y our bell and ask yourself what you need, sit and listen to a song with your eyes closed and feel it.
  3. Connect with others. Spend time with loved ones or friends, look people in the eyes (this includes people who are ringing you up at a store or the like) Reach out in person or via text, phone or some other way!
  4. Connect with your creativity. Take a photo (or 20!), Get a journal, magazines and a glue stick and glue down some images and words that you love, feel drawn to, doodle, color, knit.
  5. Connect with your body. How are your shoulders feeling, are they up to your ears? What is your body craving, take deep belly breaths, what food or beverage would really nourish you today?
