We all want to feel good! Each and every one of us has a different way to go about it though. You have to find what works best for you and your whole, well being. You have the power to control your mood as well as your attitude.
I am not saying we are going to have sunshiney days and live on cloud nine every day, but you can come pretty close if you choose how you want to feel.
How do you spread more love to yourself as well as to others? Finding that natural balance and rhythm of giving and receiving. Communicating and connecting to yourself and others. Engaging your heart as well as your mind when it comes to love sweet love!
Love is such a guiding force in living one’s life! To share and celebrate more of what you love or what you have done. It is energizing and helps give you clarity in your purpose. It is elevating and helps give you inspiration to define your “whys” in what you need to get out there to live life!
You are the one that makes great things happen!
Do you sing a little ditty in your head to make you happy? You know what resonates within you to connect to yourself on a deeper level. Especially when we need comfort, pleasure, happiness, etc. Those songs that you have on repeat to listen to again and again!
Do you have an activity that comforts you? Maybe you just need a break to play, laugh and have fun. Maybe you find release and comfort in physical activity. Find your inner kid along with your sense of humor and have some much needed play and fun time!
Think crazy cat videos, goats in pajamas, etc.!
Remember to keep the mind active too! Trying new things. Continuing to learn and develop. Keeping the mind active is challenging as well as rewarding! That feeling of I can do this. That feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment. It is inspiring and motivating!
Remember to create your comfort!
Create and set healthy boundaries for yourself and your whole, well being! Helps you become more productive with your time and energy. Puts the drama and negativity on simmer. You will feel more energized and less drained in doing for yourself and your needs!
Tune into your intuition! It is like a self check to see what is working and what is not as well as what is serving you best and what is not. How do you really need to spend your time and energies?
Tap into your creative being! Engage your creative side (mind and heart) as well as surround yourself with creativity. Really stretch yourself and the possibilities are endless in being creative!
How do you stay rooted?
I think about home. Finding that place that gives you calm, comfort and solace. Your favorite spot to just be and hang out!
The gathering and connecting. The eating and communicating. The grounding and comforting. The loving and supporting.
Home Sweet Home!
Five Senses Comfort
Remember to engage your five senses!
- Music (hearing).
- Fauna, flora or aromatherapy (smell).
- Watching the sun rise or set (vision).
- Taste (taking pleasure and enjoyment in what you eat).
- Touch (feeling the ground beneath your feet).
There is nothing better for the being than soaking up some natural rays too! Think about the lighting in your home and work environments too.
Do you hit the snooze to have five extra minutes in bed? To meditate, to stretch, etc. Sometimes it helps you wake more naturally then just jumping out of bed once the alarms sounds.
- Curling up with a good read.
- Sitting back with a bowl of popcorn to watch a good movie.
- Taking a cat nap.
Sometimes you want the heat and other times you want the cool! Spicy foods, hot yoga, etc. Ice coffee, air conditioning, etc. Have you ever found yourself curled in a blanket with the AC blasting – ha!
