How much time have you spent on yourself lately? It's easy to get caught up in day to day life and ignore what your spirit is asking you for, you will notice this when you start to feel a bit blah, you know, unmotivated, a bit down and tired.
Here are 10 great ways to help you feed your spirit and create a life you will love!
1. Practice Gratitude
When you come from a place of gratitude, you will naturally feel better and attract more great things to you, for example if you buy a friend lunch, and they are not grateful, you probably won’t do this again. If you buy a friend lunch who is overjoyed, you will be inspired to buy them lunch again. Think of the universe in the same way, the more gratitude you practice, the more it wants to give to you.
An easy way to practice gratitude is to simply say thank you throughout the day, thank you for my car, thank you for my bed, thank you for this glass of wine, whatever you are doing or experiencing throughout the day, think thank you!
2. Take a Walk
Ahh, feeling a bit cooped up lately? You are not alone, social distancing and working from home can create a lot of stress, so no more than ever getting outside is an important way to feed your spirit. No matter where you live, getting outside for 10 minutes for a quick walk is a sure way to uplift your energy.
3. Let it Go
Do you have regrets over the past? Have you been hurt by a major change of events in your life such as a break up or lost job? Well, the longer you think about the past in a negative way, the harder it is for you to move forward.
Take every past experience as a "lesson learned," and forgive anyone who has hurt you, as holding on to past hurts does not affect anyone but yourself, so just breathe and let it go.
4. Visualize for What You Want
Do you know what you want in life, I mean what you really want? Perhaps you are feeling stuck and things seem to be the same, this can be quite boring for your mind and spirit. The best tool you have to start creating more of what you want is to Visualize for what you want.
To do this, first spend some time thinking about what it is you really want, then look at images online and save them to a folder for easy access, then look through the images daily and picture yourself already having it, really feel like you have it now.
5. Meditate for 15 Minutes
