“By slowing down we open our hearts to the world around us; we absorb more in its true form. We are able to appreciate the little things that have gone unnoticed, and open up our world again to the things that are important… or maybe not important at all.”
~excerpt from “Booyah! Spirit”
Allow yourself some time just for you every single day. There is nothing more beneficial for your mind and body then relaxation. It’s so simple yet many people don’t make the time! You might think you are too busy, but I say poppycock! (did I really just say poppycock?) Everyone can locate just 10 minutes in every day to take a breather, relax, or meditate. Sitting down and watching a t.v. show doesn’t count, the relaxing I am referring to is taking your mind off everything else and focusing on YOU. Go outside and sit by yourself; take a quick walk, gaze at the stars, or watch the clouds roll by. Every time those real world thoughts or troubles creep into your mind, push them aside and focus just on what you are doing at that very moment.
Start with just 10 minutes daily and before you know it you will work your way up to 30 minutes or even an hour or so! You will feel the difference right away and come to love your new found me-time! The world will open to you when you allow yourself to slow down and enjoy it!
