“She trusted the silence to keep her calm.” ~Deb
Sometimes when the noises in my head are deafening, I go to the calm water.
When my breath is short, I stand a bit taller and inhale as deep as my belly will allow.
When I am confronted with conflict, I hop on my bike and spin around the block a few times.
When my heart beats too fast, I lay down on the yoga mat.
When I am still enough to calm down the monkey mind, I discover peace.
I rest in the moment.
And I always arise with a fresh perspective of the situation at hand.
Speaking of hands…try this right now. (Thank you Bella for this reminder)
Place your right hand over your heart.
Now place your left hand on your belly.
Breathe in deeply, three long slow breaths.
Now, doesn’t that feel better?
So tell me…what do you trust that grounds you, calms you and leads you to peace?
I would like to know so maybe I can add it to my own list of self-care practices.
