Some people need more downtime than others. This week I’m talking about this important act of self-care.
I have a deep love for the peaceful quiet that only solitude can create. When the dogs are sleeping, and the only sounds I hear are birds chirping, my introspective mind comes alive.
The blank in between the interactions, where I can find my true self, uncluttered by the sounds and feelings of others. This is my chapel, my holy place, where I speak with my soul.
“You look like you take good care of yourself.” – What a strange thing to say to someone.
Self care is the deepest affection that you can show to yourself.
It has taken me years to get to where I am now in regards to self care. As I grow and age self care has become a much bigger priority for me.
Mindfulness and meditation have been a big part of my life for several years now. I’m always happy to share with people how helpful meditation is for me.
Unfortunately almost everyone I talk to about meditation “can’t meditate”.
“I wish I could meditate. My mind isn’t made for that!” or “I can’t stand being still”, a few of the most common excuses why people tell me they “can’t meditate”.
People assume meditation was always easy for me, while in reality, nothing could be further from the truth.
People’s hobbies say a lot about them. In this video, I talk about my “obsessions”, hobbies, and passions over the years.
Over the years my interests have been all over the place. I learned everything about dog training in the fourth grade, and even trained cats to run through obstacles in our back yard. Our cat Rini knows sit and shake – if she gets a good enough treat.
Yoga has transformed my life (body and mind) and so it is very special to me. This is my favorite simple quick sequence. Repeat 3-5x’s for a fast workout.
When you find yourself waiting on someone it’s a good time for #yoga Copper gets excited when I do yoga. There is always time to kiss the puppy. #dogs #puppy #cute
