Over the next 5 weeks I will teach you the basics to living in
alignment on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level. You will be provided with a step by step process to self-care, as well as, tools and techniques for you to keep in your back pocket for when times get stressful or out of balance. To make the most of this program I encourage you to participate in the exercises provided as well as the blog.
There is something so special about sharing and connecting with others through periods of growth :0)
Are you ready to get started?
Week One: Let’s Get Grounded!
This week I really want to focus on connecting back to your roots. It is almost impossible to
make a decision, find motivation, or have will power when you are scattered, spread too thin, or exhausted from your daily routine. So this week I want focus on grounding and taking a little time for yourself. My challenge for you is to find 10-15 minutes a day to pray, meditate, or sit quietly. This can consist of formal prayer, a sitting or guided meditation, journaling, soaking in an Epsom salt bath, or simply sitting outside in
Where are your thoughts?
During the week, notice where your thoughts are. What are you worrying or stressing about? Our thoughts are such a powerful tool, they can often make us or break us! Did you know that when you or worrying or telling yourself negative messages (I’m so fat, omg I’m so ugly) it causes an adrenal response in the body. It sends the body into a fight or flight protection mode which can cause your cortisol to rise, weight gain, pain/ inflammation, or digestive distress. This week if you notice you are in your head try redirecting your thoughts and practice giving you worries to God.
Remember to Breathe!
Your breath is one of the most powerful tools that you have with you at all times. You can take up to 10 deep breaths (in through the nose, out through the nose) and this will help switch you from your sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) to your para-sympathetic nervous system (rest and digest).
If things get stressful, over stimulating, overwhelming, or you find yourself too much in your head remember to breathe and to connect back to your breath. Breathing will help to calm the mind, relax the body, and allow you to connect back to yourself.
So your action steps for this week:
1. Take 10-15 minutes a day to pray, meditate, or sit quietly
