Take 5- Mindful Moment Monday

Hey Beautiful Soul!

How are you?

When people ask you that, do you really give them an honest answer or do you just say “fine thanks”?

Today, I encourage you to ask yourself how you are. And to be honest and really check in with how you are feeling in your mind are you feeling anxiety? Are your shoulders up by your ears (feeling tense) are you feeling joyful but haven’t stopped to really soak that in and appreciate it? Try checking in with yourself in an honest way for 5 minutes. Check in with the various parts of your body, ask yourself what’s on your mind/heart? Journal about it or simply just allow some moments for stillness and a truth check-in.

Create Space in your schedule- Mindful Moment Monday

Hey Beautiful Person,

So many things are out of our control these days. It seems like our worlds for some of us as individuals are falling apart and that the world as a whole has lost its mind. It’s really easy and normal for us to get caught up in that, in the chaos, grief, the shit really… When we continue to do that long term we end up losing a sense of ourselves I think… It’s up to us to create space to reconnect with tiny tiny moments of our truths… One way we can do that is by getting our planner a post it, our digital calendars or reminders (or all of the above!) and creating space for ourselves.

This week can you schedule in time to…

Meditate

Create a meal that feels nourishing

Text a friend

Mindfully allow ourselves to cry and write our hurts on paper

Move our bodies

Read a book

Go outside

Close our eyes and listen to a song that speaks to our Souls

Create found poetry

Drink some water

Diffuse some oil

Create sticky notes (post its) with reminders and words we need and put them all over our spaces.

This week can you create some space for yourself in whatever way your soul is tugging at you too, even just a little?

Listen…Mindful Moment Monday

IMG_5471

Hey Beautiful Souls..

Something a lot of us do, without realizing it is half listen. We are often so busy formulating the response to what someone else is saying that we miss what they are saying or at least part of it.

So something I want to encourage you to practice this week (and I will be doing so right along with you is.. )

Listen.. really listen to what someone else is saying. It helps to look at them and try not to let yourself get distracted. Try it for even a few minutes, then a few more etc..

This listening a little closer, more mindfully can also be applied to yourself. We tend to interrupt ourselves when things start to get uncomfortable. Try holding a little space for yourself and listening a little deeper to you as well.

Keeps coming up… Mindful Moment Monday

IMG_6499

Hey Inspiring Souls!

I am a big believer of life having messages for us. These messages show up in all sorts of ways.

One of the ways I believe that they show up is through words and phrases. I think that we often have a word, phrase etc. show up over and over and don’t always make the connection. So we don’t slow down or lean in to really listen to it.

So this week I encourage you to do just that slow down, lean in and listen to a word, words or phrase that has been showing up over and over or does this week.

What might that message be?

Hey Beautiful Souls!

I know breathing as a prompt might seem strange to some. However so many of us don’t even realize that we hold our breaths or we are breathing shallowly or… Our breath is often an important indicator to how we are feeling or a message that our bodies might have for us.

So today (everyday) mindfully breath, notice the ways that you breathe and how it makes you feel..

Acknowledge yourself- Monday Mindfulness Moment

Hey Beautiful Souls!

At this time of year many of us can look back on what we had wanted to create this year and feel a sense of disappointment or frustration for what we didn’t accomplish or create.

Today for our Monday Mindfulness Moment.. I want you to take a few moments and think about how you showed up, what you did, created, explored , what you rocked. Take time to celebrate you no matter what your shoulds or goals were at the start of 2015.

Monday Mindful Moment:

Today look up, notice the sky, snap a picture if you feel called to. Either way take a deep breath when looking up.

We spend so much time looking down (especially at our phones!) the world is vast and beautiful in so many ways.. Today take a moment to look upwards.
