“Live less out of habit and more out of intent”
Things that help me regain my perspective…
An important thing to remember when we are under stress, out of alignment and feeling unhinged, is to return to the basics. For me it is about embracing simplicity and regrounding myself to regain perspective.
To do this I concentrate on being organised, implementing rituals and mindfully acting with intent.
I see each day as a fresh start with a new beginning. I give thanks and take time to be grateful for the life I have been given. I become consciously grateful for the simple things in life… breathing fresh air and living in this remarkably beautiful country.
I think about my priorities, my values and what are the most important elements in my life that contribute to me living my best life, my most functional life, and living a life of synchronicity in both mind and body.
Out of a mindset of intention I develop a plan centred around these three areas.
Physical Wellbeing ~ Whether it be a walk, a bike ride or exercises on the lounge room floor. Exercise for physical and mental wellbeing is critical and non-negotiable. I become aware of my nutrition and work towards eating for health and to nourish my body.
Mental Wellbeing ~ I consciously bring to my attention that I am uncomfortable and in a state of change. I control my thought processes and become determined to act with intent and positivity. I intentionally reduce the excess noise and mindfully choose to think about the priorities and the necessities and become aware of the power of a simplistic and grateful life.
Environmental Wellbeing ~ I retreat to my home environment, to create a sanctuary of comfort. A calm, organised oasis that reflects my character, including surrounding myself with my favorite things … textures, flowers, music, scent, family and calm.
Wishing you a life of calm in this challenging time,
