How are things going so far?
Have you been managing to make some space for yourself through movement, meditation, or through something else that makes you happy?
I really hope you have.
But if it is hasn’t worked out for you yet, I still applaud your efforts.
It’s tricky to find time for yourself in a busy life and it’s even trickier to find energy to do something different with that time. It’s far easier to just zone out and go with whatever habits you already have.
I’m not criticizing the tendency to zone out. I do it too. Sometimes, it’s is all we can manage to do and that’s fine.
But if zoning out is not serving you well, if it is not helping you to feel rested, then maybe you can ease your way toward another form of self care.
Today’s breathing exercise (it’s not exactly a meditation but it also kind of is) might be a good place to start, even if you just follow it for a couple of breaths.
You don’t have to create a huge space for yourself right away, the teeny tiny space of a few breaths is an excellent place to start.
If you want to get moving today, this hip-hop dance video is a fun way to get started.
No matter what you decide to do today, I hope you find some ease.
