The holiday season is drawing near. Does it feel like your life is speeding up?
There is no doubt that we live in an increasingly busy world. More speeding up is not what most of us need!
Last week, I spent several days slowing down on purpose. I've learned that whenever I want to grow and expand, I usually need to make an inner journey before I'm ready for the outer one. I sometimes imagine myself like a plant that must grow strong roots before I can grow tall branches! So, last week, I put myself in a coaching retreat where I could have the space to do the creative work that I needed to grow. It was just what I needed to help me launch the next phase of my wellness work!
Creating a sense of spaciousness is a gift that we can give ourselves. Below, I share three ways to give yourself that gift:
- In the moment - through breathing techniques that can be done anywhere.
- As a daily habit - through contemplative practices that become woven into your day.
- As a life value - by giving priority to times of rest, relaxation, and retreat.
What about you? How do you find calm and spaciousness in your life? Please share your wisdom with us in the comments below!
