16 (small) actions to help you live with more intention

 

Hey Lovely Souls,

Shifting the energy, our lives and starting the path of living a more intentional life doesn’t have to cost us a bunch or any money and doesn’t have to be time consuming. Here are some small actions you can take!

  1. Create a yes stack of books
  2. Release books that feel like “Should”
  3. Clean out your purse, car, junk drawer
  4. Unsubscribe to a email or 3!
  5. Delete apps you never use
  6. Write down a mantra and post it somewhere you will see it often ( I am loved, I am guided, I am doing my best)
  7. Look people in the eyes when you are talking to them (it’s easy to look at our phones or to dismiss the person behind the counter helping us.. make a point to make eye contact)
  8. Send an encouraging text, email,note.
  9. Put on a song you love and move to it or let it move you (sitting and soaking it in…eyes close if safe to do so)
  10. Choose a talisman of sorts, something to wear or easily portable to remind you that you are guided.
  11. Set up “stuff” the night before (clothing, coffee, am tools to help you start your day with purpose and alignment)
  12. Write down what you are grateful for (or paint it, capture a picture, write a poem)
  13. Ask yourself am I numbing or nourishing
  14.  Carry a journal with you to capture ideas, thoughts, doodles, wish lists, soul notes
  15. Carry a reusable water bottle to help you hydrate
  16. Plan your week, make sure you are in the schedule as well. Taking care of yourself is the foundation to supporting your other and to supporting your dreams!

Thursday Thoughts

Listening- Thursday Thoughts

Hey Beautiful Soul,

Sometimes the most beautiful, important practices seem too simple to even give more thought, time and practice to. We are so used to complicated in so many ways that we forget that sometimes something simple can be really powerful. We search for that thing that will give us the feeling that we so deeply desire, looking right past where it is showing up (or can show up)

Listening is one of those things. How often do you really slow down and listen, actually deeply listen.

It’s time to slow down, and breath and Listen…

To Others (Strangers and those we love)

To Your Soul

To Your Body

To Your Desires

To Your ideas

To Your Dreams

To Your Surroundings

To Your Breath

To Your Joy

To Your Sorrow.

What are you hearing?

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.
