🎯 This month we’ve been focused on cleaning up our lifestyles, from what we eat - to the products we use - and even our mindset.
And for me, this month has been challenging. Coming off vacation and turning 50, my head is spinning!!
💥🏡 One area I really focused on was my mental health. I mean, I know that health, nutrition and fitness are pretty much a staple for me, I do have to adjust as I age and my life changes. What worked in the past does't work now. Mentally grasping that can be challenging.
Here is what I have in place:
Calm app- I strive to do my Daily Calm meditations daily. It helps me focus on my breathing, inner peace and allows me to be in that moment where nothing else matters.
Momentum Dash by Chrome- Before anything comes up, you get a daily mantra and quote to live by during the day. Today's is: BE FEARLESS and the quote: "Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don't need to escape from." Seth Godin
Prayer- Yes, good ol' fashion praying is another form of meditation. I have a few favorites that I will recite daily in my head, depending on the occasion.
These are just a few of ways I can keep my mind focused on what is important to me, not to anyone else. But me.
This is important, because as we navigate through life, it's easy to be taken away by what we see in Social Media, TV, Social circles. But when you are alone with your own mind, you can truly find yourself and what is most valuable to you. Find that inner voice and don't ignore it. If we are quiet within ourselves and shut out all the noise, you will be surprised as to what you can learn about yourself.
My biggest takeaways so far are I am less likely to go into panic mode what something unexpected arises, I am a better listener because I am constantly trying to keep myself in a state of calm and patience. These practices are not easy, but with consistency, it can become second nature. Just don't ever give up on YOU!
You are amazing and capable of amazing things. How will we ever know what you are cable of, if you don't stop and get to know you!!!
