Why Take a Day Off From…

Today I’m just popping in for a quick minute to just invite you to give yourself permission to take a day off – from the world.  That’s what I’m doing and maybe you need to also.

Sometimes I forget that I can’t just give give give, and go go go, I need to also stop, receive and refill.  I need to also give myself time to just rest and replenish, and well…                just do nothing.

It’s a day that I give myself permission to just be.  Like I said I call it my – day off from the world. No work.  No heavy lifting.  No I have to.  I should.  I must.  No anxiety allowed.  (Although I have to admit I was feeling a bit anxious earlier, I’m totally calm now.)  No feeling guilty for taking time out for me to just chill, to just not expect anything of myself.  Just giving myself permission to play in the field without expectations to accomplish anything, or to create anything, or to inspire anyone…or, whatever it is I think I need to be doing.

Stopping to replenishing my mind, body and soul is the greatest gift I can give to my overall well-being.  This is part of my living mindfully and self-care, and sometimes I forget that I need to embrace solitude, empty space, do nothing time – rest.  Today, in my journal writing I was reminded of this practice by my Celestial Beings, thank you.

So, before I go and take a day off from the world, I just wanted to pop in here and share my thoughts with you, I hope that this will encourage you to do the same, if you’re finding yourself in need of some special self-care.

Mindful Pause – Breathe

As we lose ourselves in the hustle and business of our daily chores – our to do lists, our have to, our work, emails, shopping, our family, exercise, cooking…  As we rush to accomplish it all, we don’t pay attention to our breathing and we mostly take shallow breaths.  And we do it without thinking.  But today, make yourself conscious and become aware of your breathing.

As you go about your day, remember to just – b r e a t h e.

breathe

Pause for a moment, and mindfully take in a long deep breath.  Let it fill your lungs, and breathe all the way down into your belly, bring it in deep, as far in as you can.  Feel it filling your whole body, hold it for a couple of seconds, say thank you in your mind as you fill yourself with this wonderful beautiful air, and breathe out.

Pausing to breathe in mindfully and intentionally will energize you, open your senses, refresh you.  It will calm you and bring you to a more harmonious state within.

B r e a t h e!

Feel free to share your mindful breathe pause.  What did you do to remind yourself?  🙂
