What does it mean to feed your soul? How often do you slow down enough to notice exactly what you need to restore yourself and not just ‘escape’.
And I’m not just talking about a mani/pedi afternoon! (Of course those are great too!)
Taking a moment, as often as possible, to really honestly ask yourself what you need will not only provide you with some relief and satisfaction but a new sense of self and what’s important to you may emerge.
Your practice is exactly that… YOURS! It doesn’t matter what you do as long as it’s something that leaves you feeling good, restored and loved.
Here are a few recommendations for rejuvenating, taking time out to rest, restore and to get in touch with what is really needed for you to feel a deeper connection to yourself and the world around you.
Soulful Retreat Recommendations
1. Ask yourself as often as possible, especially in stressful moments, “What do I really need right now?” And then stop long enough to truly listen. If what you need can’t be given at that very moment, be sure to set aside some time that day or the next to fulfill your need.
2. Deep breathing – deep breathing exercising can be done anywhere, any time. Great for calming the mind and body.
3. Fresh air everyday – getting outside for a short walk or just sitting in a park, taking in the smells, sounds and beauty around you can provide a much needed reprieve from the day to day stress of life.
4. Take time out of your day to be still. Stillness can look many different ways but the most important part is to bring stillness to your mind. Bring some quiet to your being and allow your body to fully relax.
5. Ask for help – Oftentimes, in our busy world of very high expectations, we often feel like we need to go it alone. Part of restoring our body, mind and spirit includes allowing others to contribute to us and support us when life gets a little rough.
Your experience of unconditional love, feeling cared for and even a state of bliss are just moments away!
