Life goes in waves. Last year at this time, I felt on top of the world. Fantastic opportunities presented themselves at an alarming rate, and I felt it was too good to be true!
Welp, life is not being very nice to me right now. I don’t know why I assumed smooth sailing, but I wasn’t expecting such whammies.
I have spent a few months floating and floundering, and I am now starting to see that I have not kept self-care in my routine as much as I should. I got caught up in the “I don’t have time” and not making it a priority.
For the past several days, I have deliberately spent time in nature, “getting my head” straight. I know I need this; it's not optional for me; when I spend too much time away from the natural world, my mind gets cloudy, I start ruminating on all the negative, and I feel HEAVY.
So, slowly but surely, I am putting it back in. Ten minutes of Yoga and 5 minutes of meditation in the morning is how I am starting. I am not being truthful if I say I don’t have 15 minutes in the morning.
I have also stopped doing things that were producing more anxiety; tracking all my food and counting steps is something I have temporarily (or maybe not) let go of doing. I am practicing mindful eating and asking myself each time I eat, do I need this or want this? Either answer is ok, but just putting that quantifier in can change your decision.
