From Your Feet to Your Head
How do you connect with yourself from your feet to your head?
There is just something about connecting with your whole being and going within yourself for a while! I get a little tired, stressed and anxious with the fast pace and OVER doing of everything and anything. I am working on slowing down and just being more. It does a whole being GOOD to connect each and every day!
My Top 2
- Going for a walkabout.
Do you ever just go for a walkabout to connect with yourself?
I love being outside in the Great Outdoors! I feel more connected with myself, especially with the sun on my face and my feet touching the ground. I am able to decompress and just become one with my breathe. There is just something about being outside in nature that refreshes and reenergizes my whole being!
I have a whole different demeanor about myself when outside! My pace slows down along with my thoughts. I feel as if a weight has been lifted off me too! I prefer a walkabout instead of meditation to center myself and find my balance once again.
I get my three cravings in when I go for a walkabout too! 1) Exploring. 2) Adventuring. 3) Photography.
Do you get your exercise on to connect with yourself?
The best place I found that whole connection with myself was on the yoga mat, especially the corpse pose where I could just relax and release myself! I have been sidelined from yoga and who knows maybe in the near future can practice again. There is nothing better than a whole body stretch! It is so refreshing and reenergizing too.
I feel connected to myself in the gym getting a total body workout! I am learning to control my breathe by knowing when to breathe in and when to breathe out. I am amazed how much power my breathe has in connecting with myself and my movements when working out! The pressure and tension as well as the stress and anxiety are released and reduced for my whole being.
For me exercising has many benefits! I am able to concentrate and focus in on the motion and movement. I am improving my brain memory as well as my muscle memory in working out. I get a deeper and sounder sleep too.
